Pakistani Blogger Put Husband in a Burqa to Make a Point About Gender Roles

It is usually refreshing, albeit rare, to watch someone certainly ‘wreck the patriarchy’ as the adage now stands. A couple of married Pakistani bloggers have long gone ahead and done just that with a new Instagram publish that is going viral for all of the proper reasons.
The Newly Weds is an Instagram account run using a married couple who name themselves “activists” working for “Bettering relationships for a better network” on their Insta bio.
And they’ve released a picture this is triumphing hearts all around. In it, a lady may be visible grinning from ear to ear beside a person whom she referred to as her husband. It gave the impression that they had each come to a restaurant to eat. Only twist? He became the one wearing the burqa.

The post, which is blatantly about attacking gender roles, gender-stereotyping and misogyny, become followed by using the wittiest caption. Here’s the entire post:
“This is my lovely husband. Of path, you cannot see how stunning he’s because I make sure he maintains his splendour (study: identity) hidden as I am the only authentic haqdaar of it. Everything he is, all his achievements, dreams, all of his fkn existence, he owes it to me. Any namehram’s Nazar is haraam on him, so I select the life at domestic as the arena is a horrific area. However, it’s miles good enough when he goes out with me.
I took him to dinner at @madroostapk final night time. We best go there because they use steroid unfastened bird and we are very health conscious, especially after knowing how boom hormone injected chook can affect fertility. I don’t need his potency to be changed due to the fact his primary motive of current is to present me youngsters and make me a mother. So irrespective of what, I handiest deliver him to consume out here.
I Iove how he modestly hides at the same time as going out, as he’s khuli tijori and I wouldn’t need him to get molested. Even then if he gets molested, we can be given that as qismah and desire that the abuser can be punished in akhirah.
I, on the other hand, can roam around and loiter on my own, in my chadda banana, in my tank pinnacle in my spaghetti strap pinnacle or maybe shirtless, due to the fact I am a girl. I am no longer afraid of different ladies. They will now not attack me. And even if they do, I will no longer speak about it as it will show me vulnerable and defenceless in front of the complete extensive global. A lady is not presupposed to be susceptible, you realise, we were created to be robust and macho.
Also, I permit him exit to work and power because I am a robust believer in equality. However, looking at na-mahrams and interacting with them in any manner is strictly prohibited. It is my responsibility to make sure those practices as a pious husband is my key to Jannah, how will I get to sleep with 70 virgins within the afterlife warna?
Also, images and all is likewise haraam, but we had to try this since in an attempt to train you all and save you from qabar ke saanp and jahannum ki Aag.
Where’s my medal?”
The put up has been triumphing the blogger a whole lot of admiring on Instagram.
You are so courageous to do this woman!! Massive respect,” one Instagrammer wrote. “Wish you all the very nice …You are a fantastic reformer,” wrote another.
In any other publication, a video, the husband may be seen protecting a female’s bag. The accompanying publishes talks about how it’s far okay for men to hold their better halves bags and in fashionable assist them out with chores and be excellent to them. It went on to feature that such acts did now not make guys “lesser” or their better halves the “ol’ ball and chain” but as a substitute both husband and wife more equal and mutually reputable within the relationship.
