Women’s day in Pakistan has become quite a contentious affair, which stirs various fragments of the society in different ways.Since some years the civil society has become highly active and ardently sets up a women solidarity march; named “Aurat March” on women’s day each year.For many, this march is a way to voice the concerns of thousands of oppressed and traumatized women in the country, while for others it is mere food for mockery.The slogans raised during this parade such as “Mera jisam Meri Marzi” and “Apna Khana Khud Garam Karlo” whipped many people; thus making this demonstration highly controversial.

This year round however,some people have filed a petition against this to-be-held Aurat March in Lahore high court and have pleaded to intercept it as it spreads anarchy amongst the masses.

To everyone’s surprise, LHC has accepted the petition and the hearing will start from 27th of February.

For obvious reasons, Twitterati were irked immensely by this decision. 

Some people think no one but judiciary is at fault when they accept such cases for hearings. 

Women’s day is celebrated to advocate for females who are denied their rights in all matters of life and honor the courage of those who rose against all odds to set us an example.Pakistan possesses such women in abundance.However getting into societal feuds such as these is surely diffusing the true essence of this imperative day.It is the need of the time to look beyond these petty matters of how appropriately one is pressing upon this issue and work for something substantial for the tyrannized women of the country.
