A few months back Abrar-ul-Haq threw shade at mothers of this generation for letting their kids have screen-time that he did not have as a kid. He specifically mentioned the Baby Shark as he mocked and judged new mothers.
The singer has now released a new song which really sounds like it’s been copied off of Baby Shark. Not only is the song a blatant copy, but the theme and the way Abrar chose to introduce the song to public is also something that people are finding to be problematic:
Dedicated to all those who are too much married… Yaani "Run Mureed".

Introducing the song to twitter, Abrar shared how the song is dedicated to all ‘run-mureeds’ and netizens are not amused!
Absolute loathe the term 'run mureed'. There is no such thing. Wives are disproportionately devoted to their husbands for life. If husbands reciprocate the same it won't deprive them of manliness. https://t.co/lb0YcNgcGm

People wanted him to buy a ticket and go back to Billo’s house:
The biwi joke is outdated. The song is a bad and a blatant copy.
Buy a ticket and go back to Billo De Ghar https://t.co/PciBoHbflx

People were calling him an attention seeker:
Honestly, this man has been doing nothing recently but pulling such disgusting stunts to be in the mainstream media.
I wonder if all the men at his age turn into him or they are like this and only come out once they're old and not relevant anymore? https://t.co/epftEyIT2B

Well, well, well!
Only in Pakistan can misogyny be so intricately complex that a man could stretch a song about baby sharks and use it to justify his misogyny in so many colorful ways… https://t.co/cLAH1CUob9

People called it a lack of talent:
Where Abrar Uk Haq blatantly copies baby shark and creates a very sub par copy that Is neither melodic nor funny. Matlab he copied baby shark!! Lack of talent ki Inteha! https://t.co/xjDNwn5vAJ

The problem is that Boomers and Gen X will find it funny and keep posting and sharing on WhatsApp and Facebook 🙈 https://t.co/zUvq7mRHGy

Not sure if he's actually being sarcastic to his own comment about mothers playing Baby Shark to their kids or he's just fucking dumb!??
Duniya kahan pohanch gaye hai and we're still not past sick wife jokes presented as entertainment. Fck. https://t.co/6HIcPNJ0gc
