#BanDhoopKiDeewar becomes a top Twitter trend
While a fraction of the population got super thrilled when the trailer of Dhoop Ki Deewar made an appearance on June 15th, Sajal Aly and Ahad Raza’s current project has also managed to irk a considerable fraction of the netizen community due to its disturbing story-line.
If you are new to the chapter of Zindagi Original Dhoop Ki Deewar, the concept of the particular drama revolves around a Pakistani girl and an Indian boy who come closer to each other due to a mutual cause: The martyrdom of their fathers during a heated dispute in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).
How could we allow to telecast such non sense serial when we are witnessing about 2 years of curfew in Kashmir? Writer of this serial as well as whole cast should be ashamed who seems to be supporting brutality of Indian forces in IOK. #BanDhoopKiDeewar pic.twitter.com/gGM3jzA8OY— Babar Shahzad (@babarshahzad32) June 17, 2021
The script of Dhoop Ki Deewar is written by Umera Ahmed and the unique yet contempt-provoking serial is directed by Haseeb Hasan.
As soon as the trailer for the Zindagi series was released, it caused an uproar over various social media platforms.
Pakistanis should avoid humanizing the occupier India in films. While India preaches hate towards Kashmiris and Pakistanis in their movies (Fanaa, Gadar, Sarfarosh, etc.) some Liberal Pakistanis are living in La La land and advocate for love with Fascist India. #BanDhoopKiDeewar— Afsheen Mujahid Chak (@DarthSheen_) June 19, 2021
The social media users don’t approve of the script’s ‘disrespectful’ concept as they believe that this particular drama would prove to be highly discourteous for the population of Kashmir.
Aman Ka Tamasha failed the first time and it will fail the second time too. but it will run long enough for many to make a quick buck off of it.— Asfandyar Bhittani (@BhittaniKhannnn) June 16, 2021
You can not build peace on blood, occupation & ethnic cleansing. #DhoopKiDeewar
#BanDhoopKiDeewar has now become a top Twitter trend as more and more people felt the urge to protest against Sajal-Ahad’s new project and this caused the writer Umera Ahmed to take to her social media platform and offer an enhanced explanation over why the criticism might be unnecessary.
She posted a detailed explanation over her Instagram.
