Hamza Ali Abbasi is talking about his marriage again and the goalposts keep shifting

Abbasi insists he's using the attention to "highlight a point for those who can relate and are interested."
24 Aug, 2019

Following the announcement of his upcoming marriage just days before the wedding, actor Hamza Ali Abbasi took to social media once again to elucidate his earlier remarks.

Abbasi insisted he was using the attention drawn by his marriage to "highlight a point for those who can relate and are interested."

In his earlier message, Abbasi had said his relationship with fellow actor and wife-to-be Naimal Khawar had been that of a "very platonic friend" — implicitly indicating that the couple had no prior relations — and going so far as to say he did not love her and is marrying her to fulfill religious obligations.

In his latest, he claims, "platonic relationship means 'love or affection in a bond without any sexual element in it."

A key reason Abbasi has been receiving flak for his comments surrounding his marriage is his seeming insecurity or unwillingness to acknowledge the nature of his relationship with Khawar and choice to vilify those who do not adhere to his views, as well as shifting the proverbial goalposts on what is religiously permissible when it comes to finding a partner.

Some pointed out the potential source of this strenuous exercise in denial as a lack of appropriate socialisation between the sexes.

Whatever the reason, it's entirely okay to like someone and decide to settle down; there is no reason to hide.

Don't really care about these self-loving celebrities, but hanging out with na-mehram is not 'halal'. Don't know why he brought religion into this, but I am pretty sure it was for self-promotion.

As he said,it is his point of view for someone who can relate to it. Stay original man...the way you are.

I notice all male actors tend to have beards these day . Has it got something to do with fashion tend in the country as baggy jeans replacing tight jeans ?
