An interview of a famous matchmaker Mrs. Khan went viral and garnered tons of criticism and support at the same time. Some thought the message could have been conveyed in a much polite manner and some were rooting for her, it was a crazy mess! In a recent interview, Mrs. Khan was invited and questioned about the viral clip and here’s what she has to say:
She starts off by sharing how she was bullied for the past couple of days at the hands of many women who did not even spare her at 3-4am in the morning. When asked to elaborate about the viral clip, Mrs. Khan, in a very sensitive and mature way handled the situation and shared that she might have come off as an advocate of patriarchy in the clip but it is not what she believes in.
She then added how she is all about women empowerment and acknowledges that times have changed widely. She also encouraged working women and said that there’s nothing wrong in hiring house help and honestly, she’s definitely redeemed herself for many!
She also added how it is equally important for men to take care of their wives and that she would never support a man who raises his hand on his wife or expects her to be a full time maid.
Whatever Mrs. Khan said in that viral video is applicable to men as well. In most relationships, both partners argue just for the sake of argument by trying to one up each other. Both men and women should control their lallos and try to make compromises. That's how it works.

People loved how the host tackled the issue:
I liked the way female anchor made #MrsKhan realise her mistake, she was compelled to say I regret what I said ! But it was funny when she said ہم آپکی نانی کی جگہ ہیں تو خاموش ہو جائیں نا اگر کوئی بات بری بھی لگی ہے !

Some thought of her as everyone’s typical family with an access to public platform:
Mrs Khan is actually the true face of our society. She is like our mothers chachis khalaa phuphoss sisters,she just have access to a public platform. #mrskhan

Many thought of her high blood pressure as an excuse:

Men were tweeting out how they help their wives:
To Mrs. Khan (aka Rishta Aunty): Made these for me and my son while my wife is at work and I’m staying at home taking care of the house & child. Real men don’t need to be “taken care of” by their wives. We help take care of our household & stand by our wives as they chase dreams pic.twitter.com/E7JaKMOsiC

To me Mrs Khan is right. Men should be served food at their tables, their clothes be washed, should be spoon-fed, given a baby pacifier when they weep, & a diaper be wrapped around their asses 24/7. & oh yes, a smack on their butts every now & then would keep them in limits.

People were blaming the channel for ‘destroying the culture’
