Saba Qamar asks men to 'break your bro codes' and call out sexual predators

Saba Qamar asks men to 'break your bro codes' and call out sexual predators

The actor asked all men to stand up for the women in their lives days after the murder of Noor Mukadam.
26 Jul, 2021

Saba Qamar recently posted a short but powerful message for the men who follow her on social media.

The actor — who played the late Qandeel Baloch in the television serial Baaghi — addressed her fans through an Instagram Story. "Someone said today that all of us women are just one man away from being the next hashtag and it sent shivers down my spine," Qamar wrote.

The actor is one of many women who have recently raised their voice against sexual predators in light of Noor Mukadam's torture and murder.

"If you are a man and you've ever cared even once for any woman in your life, please call out men in your circles with predatory behaviour. Please break your bro codes. If you cant do that then stop pretending to be an ally because you're only enabler then," she concluded.

Qamar is known to speak up for women against forms of harassment, sexual or otherwise. Earlier this year the actor was lauded for coming to the defence of Churails star Mehar Bano who said Qamar rescued her after she was harassed by someone on set at a very young age.

We appreciate Qamar's message because it's something we believe in too. Men (and everyone else) need to start calling out toxic behaviour to prevent violence against women.

When we cannot stop violence against boys, how can we expect the weaker sex to be safe in this world perennially violent against them ?

She is so right, men laugh at micro aggressions at women, ogle at them, harass them in public, make them feel uncomfortable. This opens room for more violent acts, we all know this breed of desi men

Noor case is not about gender but a person who is a psychopath and move in our normal elite society. So don't confuse this special case.

If only we start denouncing and discouraging behaviours and mindsets that have prevailed through our history and fomented by our cultures and exploitative tribal values etc. we can have a better world for Women in Pakistan.

@Tabishk ... funny to see desi men. Your mental level may be low for some desi men. What do u mean by desi men?. It all comes from the surroundings, family traits and your disdain for women.

Being a parent myself. I request all the parents to do their job well. It's our duty & responsibility to raise a child in such a way that they don't become a threat to our nation. And by doing this timely we can "make a difference". Thank you

Bare shoulders, cleavage to down under, heavy make up, come hither look. She sets the bait then proceeds to accuse men of impropriety. "The female of the species is deadlier than the male". Kipling was writing about the cobra, but his allusion to the human female is even more true.
