A woman has filed a petition in a Lahore civil court to halt the release of Mere Pass Tum Ho's final episode.
The drama serial has continuously insulted women, showing them to be worthless in society, the petitioner said, adding that it has not been of benefit to Pakistani women.
"The writer of this script has shown his mental harshness against the dignity of women in a very disrespectful manner," the petition read.
The request has been filed by a woman named Maham through her lawyer, Advocate Majid Chaudhry and the petition names PEMRA, Punjab Film Censor Board, ARY Digital, Nadeem Baig and Humayun Saeed as respondents.
After hearing the plaintiff's arguments, civil judge Naila Ayub has issued a notice to PEMRA, Baig and Saeed requesting they respond by, and set a hearing on, January 24.
Mere Pass Tum Ho's double finale is set to air on television and cinemas simultaneously on January 25.
