woman filed a petition in a Lahore civil court on Wednesday to stop the final
episode of Meray Pass Tum Ho from
The show has repeatedly passed
derogatory comments about women and has disrespected their status, said the
woman, identified as Maham Chaudhry.
“This is an attempt to show women as weak
and less important in society,” she stated in her petition. Chaudhry added that
this does not benefit Pakistani women at all.
She filed the request through her lawyer
advocate Majid Chaudhry. The petition names the Pakistan Electronic Media
Regulatory Authority, director Nadeem Baig, Punjab Film Censor Board, Humayun
Saeed and ARY Digital as respondents.
After hearing the arguments, civil judge
Nadia Ayub issued a notice to PEMRA, director Nadeem Baig and Humayun Saeed to submit
their response in court by Friday. All of them have been summoned to court for
the hearing as well.
Pass Tum Ho’s
finale will air on televisions and cinemas countrywide on January 25.
