Pakistani woman sets Twitter ablaze by dressing husband in burqa
“This is my beautiful husband. Of course, you can't see how beautiful he is because I make sure he keeps his beauty (read: identity) hidden as I am the only true haqdaar of it,” Héra Mannan Khan wrote on her Mewlyweds Instagram page. “Everything he is, all his achievements, dreams, all of his fkn life, he owes it to me.”
She went on to say that, while she prefers her husband Waleed Ahmed Saeed Khan stays at home, she took him to dinner last night and they ate steroid-free chicken because she doesn’t “want his fertility to be affected because his major purpose of existing is to give me children and make me a mother.”
“I Iove how he modestly hides himself while going out,” she added, explaining, “I wouldn't want him to get molested.”
“I on the other hand can roam around and loiter on my own...in my tank top in my spaghetti strap top or even shirtless, because I am a woman,” she said, adding she isn’t afraid of being assaulted by other women, “And even if they do, I will not talk about it because it will prove me weak and defenceless in front of the whole wide world. A woman is not supposed to be weak, you know, we were created to be strong and macho.”
Khan went on to boast that she lets Waleed go to work and drive and how once she ensures he remains pious, she will get to “get to sleep with 70 virgins in the afterlife.” She ended the post with a number of hashtags including “smashingpatriarchy” and “endrapeculture.”
She followed up with another post showing Waleed holding her handbag, writing, “Men, you must show your wives as much love, tenderness, and respect as they do to you. Don't be ashamed of that.”
The posts, which were also shared on Twitter, were widely met with positive comments with many commending Khan for taking a stand. Numerous people also responded with their own satirical comments.
I am not sure you know but the veil your husband is wearing is see through, it’s not really modest attire. Pls ensure he covers up properly before going outside !— Siva Thanenthiran (@SivananthiT) April 7, 2019
I think u shouldn’t let him work & drive, and there is no logic behind my opinion but I still think u shouldn’t 🤷🏻♀️.— Gulalai (@GulalaiJ) April 6, 2019
Can he go outside without you accompanying him? Go easy on such privileges. Today it's this, tomorrow it will be gender equality..! I mean c'mmon!— Nitin Sharma (@nitinwayfarer) April 7, 2019
Two things you must never let him do, without supervision. Work and Drive. Do you know the kind of women he might encounter at work. You must guard against this, medal or no medal.— Ichie Whyte (@il_Cavalier) April 7, 2019
Oh and by the way, get him a black veil. This is too revealing, you don't want women seeing him
I literally could see all his beautiful face... Imagine if I was a woman going agog over him— David kinyua (@g_dkinyua67) April 8, 2019
But, of course, not everyone was impressed.
Yes he married a stupid person i would cover my face too if i wrongly got married to a stupid person.— itbitBrex (@AsayKyun) April 6, 2019
What is this? I already fed up of these two stupids aur tum bhi a jao ab meri mentions hain ya koi pagal khana??— itbitBrex (@AsayKyun) April 6, 2019
I know you're not addressing me but the whole idea is dumb. Bye.— 🌀 (@AswadBinAzraq) April 6, 2019
So are you making a joke out of desi ppl or Islamic rulings?— Saba Muneer (@SabaMuneer12) April 6, 2019
Coz all i can see is you are making a joke oit of Life of Hazrat Aisha. R.A.
She used to be at home, she used to cover her self, she was modestly hiding herself. https://t.co/bI3r7fpu7t
Khan hit back at those who left “senseless misogynistic” comments, saying, “it ain't my responsibility to teach you how satire works” and “people like you are exactly the problem. You are the reason I had to put up such a post in the first place.”
To all of you who understand what this means, to all of you supporting the cause, lots of love and hugs. May we all together become change catalysts, may we all learn to treat each other based on humanity.— The Mewly Weds! (@themewlyweds) April 7, 2019
And to those of you coming at me with senseless misogynistic bullshit:— The Mewly Weds! (@themewlyweds) April 7, 2019
A) it ain't my responsibility to teach you how satire works
B) people like you are exactly the problem. You are the reason I had to put up such a post in the first place.
Now fuck off, I don't owe you shit
