Is PDA between two consenting married adults a crime?
No, but you'd think so looking at the comments on Fahad Mirza's Instagram post.
If you, like us, have been living vicariously through Mirza and Sarwat Gillani's dreamy European holiday on Instagram, you've probably seen the picture that has rattled the moral brigade all the way in Pakistan.
For the inundated, the photo is of the married couple kissing in front of the Trevi Fountain in Rome.
While public displays of affection (PDA) may not be everyone's cup of tea, you can't deny that a celebration of love hits you right in the feels! But obviously, the haters were quick to ruin their little moment.
It'd be laughable if it weren't so disturbing that our society is more tolerant towards men abusing their wives than showing them affection.
And this is hardly anything new; the same happened when Yasir Hussain gave Iqra Aziz a hug and kiss on the cheek right after he proposed at the Lux Style Awards. Also, remember when Jibran Nasir gave Mansha Pasha a peck on the forehead at their engagement and everyone lost it?
Why, no, that is actually NOT the Islamic Republic of Pakistan...
But even if it were, they're a married couple! Leave them alone.
And even if they weren't, just leave them alone? We for one think it's a welcome change to see a desi man expressing love for his significant other.
Where is the lie though?
Sending the happily married couple good vibes and lots of nazar repellent!
