‘Fragile Manhood’: Sindh MPA Files Police Complaint Against Aurat March Organisers
Member Provincial Assembly Syed Abdul Rasheed on Wednesday registered a police complaint against the organisers of the Aurat March 2019 and termed the event ‘vulgarity’.
The police complaint claimed that the march was “disrespectful” towards Islamic values and “family system”.
“The slogans carried at the event were against Islamic values and were promoting vulgarity.”
Earlier, the MPA had protested in a Sindh Assembly session and reiterated that Aurat March was “un-Islamic” and he would file an FIR [First Information Report] against the organisers of the Aurat March in Karachi.

Addressing a Sindh Assembly session, the Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal leader said that authorities need to help him so that an action could be taken against the participants of the march.
He said: “These activities are against Pakistan’s laws and also against Islam,” asking, “who gave permission for carrying out such activities?”
“Why is no one taking action against them?” he questioned.
“I was watching an interview of a participant of a march who wanted Nikkahs to be made illegal,” he claimed.
It is important to mention here that organisers of the Aurat March had released their demands prior to the March and no such demand was part of their manifesto. An end to violence, the right to economic justice, and the right for access to proper reproductive health measures among others were few of the demands.
