Mahira Khan, Ayesha Omar, and Osman Khalid Butt urges PM Imran Khan to get the domestic violence bill passed

Celebrities like Mahira Khan, Ayesha Omar, and Osman Khalid Butt have recently appealed to PM Imran Khan to get the domestic violence bill passed.

The actors took to their social media, asking Prime Minister Imran Khan to take the necessary steps and get the Domestic Violence Protection and Prevention Bill, 2021 passed in parliament.

After the tragic killing of Noor Mukadam on July 21, many people have renewed their call for the bill to be passed. The bill was initially passed by the National Assembly. It was referred back to the Lower House of Parliament and the senate suggested some changes to the law, citing concerns regarding various contents of the bill. Then the bill was sent to the Council of Islamic Ideology for review, but they made a decision that was heavily criticized on social media.

Actor Mahira Khan, Ayesha Omar, and Osman Khalid Butt shared their views regarding the domestic violence bill.

Mahira Khan wrote in her Tweet, “THIS!! @ImranKhanPTI
Now please please get the domestic violence bill passed. Till there aren’t laws in place, women will always be vulnerable to abuse. There must be accountability.”


Mahira Khan praising the remarks of PM on the Mukadam’s case. Imran Khan stated, “People say that the alleged killer comes from a rich and influential family, because of which he might escape due punishment,” the premier had said. “Let me tell you, no one will escape punishment here. He wont escape even if he’s a dual national with an American citizenship.”

Ayesha Omar replied to Mahira Khan’s Tweet, “I second this. This should definitely be a priority right now. This bill needs to be passed and laws put in place. So many women are regularly facing Domestic abuse and it is dismissed as being ‘a personal home matter’. Women need to be protected.”

Earlier, Osman Khalid Butt also shared a Tweet, “Pass the Domestic Violence Bill.
What is taking so long in reviewing it?”

Not only that, many celebrities such as Adnan Siddiqui, Asim Azhar, Mawra Hocane, Ali Rehman Khan, Meesha Shafi, Faysal Qureshi, among others, condemned Noor’s murder and demanded justice on social media.
