The Aurat March that took place on 8th March this month has triggered a lot of people. I mean, women standing up for their rights? Haww haye! Ever since the Aurat March took place, there have been a lot of opinions pouring in. The attendees themselves have faced a lot of trolling and hate for standing up for themselves.
Amidst the raging sea of opinions, Veena Malik dropped hers too, because she’s just so relevant…
Here’s what Veena Malik tweeted:
Who planned and funded this controversial #auratmarch2019
Because this brought Humiliation to women of Pakistan instead of Anything positive like empowering them etc…!!! #Aurat#AuratMarch

The problem with Aurat March was that all the sensational posters went viral, instead of the actual issues that were discussed at length at the march. People were triggered at the viral posters and women having the time of their lives. If only these people could be triggered with domestic violence, rapes, underage marriages and the harassment that women face everyday in their lives. People did not spare Veena. Shots were immediately fired.
The same feminists who came out to defend you when you were being threatened for exercising your right because there was a time when you believed in mera jism meri marzi too.We lifted each other up same way we fought for you defended you against the mullahs&thekaydars of culture.

A trip down the memory lane is always important!
Honey lets take a quick walk down memory lane. Did we or did we not defend you for every 'controversial action you took including you posing nude or the whole big boss drama? And now suddenly your moral sensibilities are offended , you vapid snake????? pic.twitter.com/drJ7frFr0t

A little bit of Ashmit Patel was also mentioned
Washing ashmit Patel’s chaddis sure brought lots of pride to the women of Pakistan. Don’t crap on the women that defended your rights

Imagine being filled with so much internal misogynism 🤮. If there is a country that needs such marches it is Pakistan. It was a breath of fresh air to see such strong and amazing fellow paki women. It was so inspiring. Try to read what those women are saying in terms of issues

Someone had to burst her bubble, and they did it well!
I dont know how to break this to you, but your tweets are bringing way more humiliation internationally than the #AuratMarch

It came as a shock to people that Veena Malik being a woman herself was bashing the Aurat March, umm, what?
Honestly, pick a side! Who are you? A woman who believes in her own agency or a tool for patriarchy?

Some people thought it was necessary to remind Veena of how the same women she’s bashed, came out to help her in the past when she did a shoot. A lot of people jumped in and started posting old and inappropriate pictures of her.
And while Veena Malik was being tweeted and taunted on her past, the same women that she bashed in her tweet stood up for her by discouraging others to dwell on her past. And that my friends, is what true feminism is. Women being there for each other, women speaking out against harassment and bullying, women who stand by each other despite there being differences in their thinking. See it for yourself!
Hey Veena Malik I remember I was in the 10th grade when your nude shoot pictures came out. I defended you in front of everyone, students and teachers included. I was ridiculed for supporting your choice to your body. Even tho you just shat on us with this, I'd defend you again.

And then there were some hopeful ones too!
There’s a room for improvement for everything and I hope next year #AuratMarach2019 would define it’s way more. With more objectivity and more unified slogans.

With that being said, if I were a celebrity I’d rather do my research before dismissing the movement and embarrassing myself, just saying!
