‘Men were shouting ‘Dou Takkay Ki Aurat’ – Witness shares what happened with Ayeza Khan at the airport
Twitter user shared what he saw at the airport.
The way we treat our artists, particularly the women, speaks for our collective conscience. However, every single day, we keep unlocking a new level of disgrace and hit a new low.
A twitter user shared what he witnessed at the airport, which shows that Pakistanis need decades to be able to digest art and comprehend it gracefully.
21 The Band member Ahmed Butt took to his twitter handle to share what he witnessed when he was at the airport. He said that he was coincidently at the same airport where Ayeza Khan was present. He saw Ayeza walking uncomfortably at a faster pace, as a group of men was shouting “Dou Takkay Ki Aurat”.
”I was at the airport and coincidentally happened to see Ayza Khan nearby. She was walking really fast and men were shouting “Dou Takkay Ki Aurat” at her as she went by,” Ahmed wrote.

”I don’t know much about Pakistani drama serials but apparently, they were quoting some line that Humayun Saeed’s character Danish says to her which is something I found out afterwards. There were a couple of men who said this out loud then after which she just went away quickly,” Ahmed continued.
Ahmed said that the incident shows how important it is for women to go out in public and reclaim their space. He said that issues like this continue to suppress them.
”This incident further goes to show how important it is for women to go out and reclaim public spaces while they stand in solidarity with each other and bring to light, the issues society continuously forces them to suppress. 8th March. Be an ally and march with us.”
The incident irked the Twitter community, who showed support for Ayeza Khan and the women who face similar problems while using public spaces in Pakistan.
This is exactly what i always said when people kept telling me “its just a drama”. NO ITS NOT! It affects our daily lives. This is how they become reality and spread toxicity. Ayeza khan must be very happy after facing this for playing such a role.

Literally humiliating. Actors work very hard just for us audience. And thats what they get in return. So disrespected.

This is a line @arydigitalasia, Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar and Humayun Saeed are really happy to see trending. They see no harm in their degrading dialogues through out the drama. Shame them too.

Hamari qoum ka ilaj nehi… they cant differentiate between fiction and reality, between a play and real life, a reel life and a real person. Damn.
