Its seems like everything nowadays is interwoven with Khalil ur Rehman Qamar and “to-be-held” Aurat March. After Qamar abused Marvi Sirmed, called her unsavory names and body shamed her on a Neo TV show Tuesday night many people came out to protest against him, including several people from the showbiz fraternity. News is, that now GEO Entertainment and 7th Sky Entertainment have announced that they have suspended their contract with writer Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar after he swore at a rights activist two days ago on live television.

“Geo believes in exchange of ideas and promoting the culture of Live and Let live (Geo our Jeenay do) we believe that everyone has the right to express their opinions and the culture of healthy debate should be encouraged”

The statement further said such debates should be held in the norms of decency and with respect. “He [Qamar] not only used abusive language against a woman but also refused to accept his mistake and apologies for it,” 

In response to this jerky announcement by GEO, the writer declared to cut off all professional ties with the channel, also refusing to apologize to the people whose sentiments he had hurt with his conduct.

After the news made rounds on internet, people are expressing their fury over the decision by the channel. #boycottGeo has become the top Twitter trend in the country since then.
