‘Demeaning woman on screen is not art’ Hamza Ali Abbasi


Hamza Ali Abbasi once again questioned ‘Item Songs’ in Pakistani films being called as an art.

Speaking in his recent interview, Abbasi said demeaning a woman is not an art, neither from a religious point of view nor from a secular point of view.

“You don’t demean a woman on screen and call it art. Why are strip shows not art? In my head there’s a clear distinction,” he said.

It must be noted here that recently ‘Churails’, Pakistan’s first-ever web-series featuring bold content was made inaccessible in the country. The web-series got banned in Pakistan following a huge backlash from people over its content. Netizens think that there are a lot of other ways to promote women’s empowerment than using abusive language, alcohol, and smoking.
