Zafar Bangash

Sha'ban 29, 14432022-04-01

Westoxicated women in Pakistan have been holding ‘Aurat March’ (Women’s March) since 2018. While some of their demands are legitimate, others are extremely offensive like “my body, my choice”.

Sha'ban 29, 14432022-04-01

Tahir Mahmoud

Waseem Shehzad

Rajab 28, 14432022-03-01
