Drama serial under fire for showing a man refusing to believe his wife after attempted ‘rape’ [VIDEO]

The drama serial reinforces traditional stereotypes, which has irked the viewers.

Pakistani drama serial Aitebaar is in hot waters because of its recent episode. The drama is written by Maimoona Aziz and directed by Nadeem Siddiqui. The drama serial features Zarnish Khan and Syed Jibran in lead roles, in the characters of Parisa and Hamza respectively. With such big names attached to the series, it is hard to believe that the drama is being criticized right now.

The Problematic Episode

The particular scene is from the second episode of the drama in which the wife Parisa is trying to convince Hamza that she was not raped, but Hamza refuses to believe his wife. Parisa and Hamza were in the car when kidnappers took Parisa with them after beating Hamza and leaving him on the road. However, Parisa luckily manages to escape from the situation and remains unharmed.

The episode showcases a husband not believing his wife, and assuming she was raped by goons after she clearly tells him that she was not raped. The husband in the scene says to his wife:

Mein nae bhula pa raha kay kisi geayr ne tumhe chuwa hai (I am unable to forget that some stranger has touched you.

Parisa explained that nothing happened to her but he refused to believe.

Pakistanis took to Twitter to call out the drama serial forshowing a husband victim blaming his wife:
