The Drama Raqs-E-Bismil Under Fire!

Hum TV is showing a new drama Raqs-e-Bismil these days which is a production of Momina Duraid and Wajahat Rauf. The drama has very talented actors as a cast which includes people like Imran Ashraf, Sarah Khan, Momin Saqib, Javeria Saud, Anushay Abbasi, Mehmood Aslam, Nida Mumtaz, etc. It is based on a storyline which is depicting the real face of society.

Sarah Khan who has previously done a negative role in “Sabaat” is doing the role of Zohra, a veiled woman, which is representing a negative character so far somehow. People are not liking this concept of showing women who bury themselves under Hijabs as a bad influence in society because Zohra’s character turns out to be a modern girl who is just hiding her real personality behind this fully covered attire.

On the other hand, Imran Ashraf is playing the role of religious person “Moosa” who gets under the spell of Zohra because of her covered appearance which later gets revealed when he finds Zohra’s reality. Netizens are demanding to call it down as they think this drama Raqs-e-Bismil is showing a bad image of the religious attire. It is normalizing this kind of disguise in youth. But many of them are supporting as well as they know that this is what society is going through these days.

The drama makers may be depicting society’s real face, but this drama must end on something which gives a strong moral story, so this malice vanishes away from our society.
