Naumaan Ijaz made a 'joke' about infidelity but Twitter had the last laugh

In a resurfaced clip from Iffat Omar's show, the actor makes light of infidelity and says #MeToo is a result of "deen se doori".
Updated 09 Sep, 2020

If you follow Naumaan Ijaz on Instagram, you know he loves to dish out advice.

So when he appeared on Iffat Omar's talk show, naturally she couldn't resist asking him for some: what is the secret to a successful marriage?

In a resurfaced clip from a year ago, Ijaz, who has been married for 25 years, says, "We're sustaining it as a relationship, keeping in mind our limitations. Secondly, if I were to talk about my wife, Rabia, I'm very lucky. She's adorable."

Iffat then asks, "But have you ever slipped up? Have you ever fallen in love for one day?"

"Every moment. That happens daily. I love beautiful women who are hard to get. So I fall in love with them even more. And she doesn't find out. I'm such a great actor and an intelligent man that my wife, thank God, never finds out," he replies smugly, even though he was just talking about limits before this.

After boasting (joking?) about cheating, Ijaz also went on to discredit the #MeToo movement, saying it's a "dangerous" trend that will be misused and weaponised and is a result of "deen se doori" (estrangement from spirituality/religion).

You're not alone if you're struggling to understand how people speaking up against sexual harassment and assault is 'deen se doori' but not, you know, cheating on your spouse.

Twitter is as confused as we are

Assuming it was a joke, let's be clear that it was in bad taste.

And you know if the tables were turned...

The show's called Say It All with Iffat Omar but maybe Ijaz shouldn't have

Well to be fair, Iffat also hinted towards learning the trick of cheating on her spouse not getting caught.

If you see a beautiful lady and silently in your mind appreciate her as a wonderful creation of the Creator, then it is good just as, you would appreciate a beautiful flower and say Subhanallah. But, if you follow the lady t o deliberately have a second look, it is not appreciated because then it becomes "lust".

You don't attention if you don't say something abruptly. There you go, now those who follow Mr. Ejaz, have a new extremely important topic to spend time on.

I dont think we as a nation are mature enough to have a sensible conversation on such talkshows. So in principle I dont think we should really be entertaining such platforms in the first place.

There is a reason I don't watch these actors outside their movies or dramas. They have not got a clue what to say outside a script.

Publicly talking about cheating on his wife defeats the purpose of hiding it from her. Then he bashes the en vogue metoo movement. Perfect recipe for getting publicity.

Normalizing cheating, infidelity from such senior artist (Noman Ijaz) and endorsing it from another senior actor/host (Iffat Omar) is not okay. This interview gives a glimpse of why our TV industry is following the trend of infidelity, extra marital affairs and related stuff. The irony is soon after this question, both started to discuss Me Too Movement!!
