There were rumours floating around that Khalil ur Rehman Qamar and Eshal Fayyaz have been married. Eshal released a video on social media denying the rumours.
In a conversation with The Express Tribune, Qamar also denied the rumours and was quoted to have said the following:
“I strongly reject all such rumours as sheer propaganda. I am happy and satisfied in my life and also request everyone spreading these claims to not associate my name with such second-rate women,” said Qamar in a rather condescending tone – Express Tribune.
The statement gathered quite the attention and the internet was absolutely furious!
Take issues that women face, dramatize them and make money and fame from them. But discredit a woman in real life, by saying she's a loose girl or a second-rate woman. If hypocrisy had a ass, it would look like his face 🍑 https://t.co/tsR8pQZ67X

People were calling him a disgrace:
I don’t know what else will take for people to realise he is utterly sick and has nothing good or appropriate to offer to our society. I am sick of this man and his face let alone his work. He is a disgrace. https://t.co/R2EQyYso2N

Some wanted the channels to hire better writers:
Channels like @Humtvnetwork and @arydigitalasia etc need to stop enabling toxic men like Khalil ur Rehman Qamar by hiring them as tv writers.
You can't make dramas like #Udaari and #Damsa on one hand while enabling mysogyny on the other. Hire better writers with better values. https://t.co/obs9YDZ7r2

Some weren’t surprised:
And then people ask me why I don’t watch Meray Paas Tum Ho or why I don’t like him.
It’s beyond my comprehension that so many people love his work, find him deep and intellectual when this is the tone he has for women, just because they are women! https://t.co/yxAoPLecuY

Some were calling him misogynistic:
Calling someone a “second-rate woman” is not just rubbishing marriage rumours- it’s being a misogynistic pig whose ego only keeps getting bigger because the entire country is happily consuming the first-rate garbage he wrote 🤦♀️ https://t.co/MGFy6uzuPz

People were appalled at his language and tone:
"Such second rate women"… and then you guys ask why we have a problem with him. Look at his language and tone. https://t.co/8ImffDn067

Some shared how he represents majority of the men in the country:
Some wanted him to be respectful:
Second rate ????
Popularity does not give you credential to label anyone according to your own standards. Learn to respect !!#MerayPaasTumHo #khalilurrehmanqamar #respect https://t.co/S3MRAxxhda

Some were genuinely confused why he chose to tarnish the woman’s repute:

Someone please teach Khalil ur Rehman Qamar some manners. He is downright disgusting, you had several other decent ways to negate the rumour why tarnish a woman’s repute? pic.twitter.com/06Hq6lV1mN

And while everyone was calling him out on his language and tone, Khalil ur Rehman took to Twitter to accuse the news publication of misquoting him:
The News Given by @etribune made by a very stupid guy who wanted to insult Heroin of my film kaaf kangna quoting me to have said ( 2takky ki larki ) is absolutely baseless and fauls.
In contrary (2/2)
— Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar (@KrqOfficial) January 13, 2020
He also added what he actually thinks of Eshal Fayyaz:
I would rather say she is very respectable hardworking girl and I always admire her professionalism i cannot even think about saying such ugly words about such a respectable girl
Shame on the guy who made this news and disseminated !(1/2)
— Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar (@KrqOfficial) January 13, 2020
And people still weren’t sold:
Sir, actually baat ye hai k aap hain jhootay. And ap k interviews bohat hain which would corraborate the VERY SAME FUCKING STATEMENT. So ffs, shut it. https://t.co/XIjBUOiJ9i
— Rida (@RidaLodhi6) January 13, 2020
So #KhalilurRehmanQamar is saying he didn't say all those horrible things about that one actress. I think I'll believe him since he's always been so vocally proud of saying all the horrible things he's always said about women in general.
