Sherry Rehman Smoking & Knee Jerk Reaction of Hypocrites’


I am sad to see, Sherry Rehman smoking video is spread through emails just like fire in the jungle. Smoking “as if it’s the biggest crime if ever done by women” video is labeled SHERRY REHMAN SMOKING SCANDAL. This video is spread not by illiterate people “as termed, they stink in their sweaty clothes” but by so called literate class, working professionals as well as graduates from the Best Pakistani Business Schools.

When I shared this video with my female friends along with my comments, a series of emails started flowing, following questions were raised;

a) Why it’s ok for a guy to smoke, if a women does it, its termed scandal…why this stigma? Why this double standard?

b) Guys screw around, party, have sex before marriage…..if women does it, why she becomes victim of honor crime i.e. Karo Kari.

c) Why there are different sets of values for men and women?

d) Isn’t it hypocritical? Why always male chauvinist brings religion to justify their desire to regulate the social, sexual and physical agency of women?

I want average ‘so called’ educated class to think over, twice……

Hope sanity prevails in the land of PURE “Pakistan”

Well, that is deplorable, I agree, to make an issue out of a none issue. You don't need to be surprised if so-called educated people make hill out of efforts to promote such videos. It has nothing to do with they being educated. Rather, it is their audience whom they expect to be lesser educated and informed about 'Good women" and " Bad women". Therefore, they would expect the people to give them a thumps up once they debunk such 'scandals'.

Pakistani society needs to get rid of this bunch of idiots. These fellows continue to exist in our ranks even in the J or Bz schools. They have disappointingly odd yardsticks to gauge 'honor' and 'character' of a woman.

its really double standard one should condemn this Hippocratic individuals, smoking is not a such a big issue that should be counted as a scandal, what if a women smokes, does the women n our society for last hundreds of years smoke tobacco in HUQA's. Than whats the big issue in smoking a cigarette.

SCANDAL! wheres the big news there! for our paki narrow minded men it surely is.

Narrow minded not really, they claim to be so okay with and cool with the idea of their female friends smoking, yet pose restriction on wives and sisters even though they themselves are a Smoke Engine. Justification for such double standard is that they wouldnt like anyone to think "Like that" about their women. "Think like what" is my question, whoever puts these restrictions is also contributing to same idea.

Man makes the rules, creates these stigmas that obviously only associate with women, backed by religion!

Well men are just jealous that they dont look half as hot while smoking .. But on a serious note , its really astonishing how guys can have different values for themselves and women.. double standards are everywhere in the world , but Muslim men sure take the cake ... thanks to their convenient interpretation of thier version of religon

Its not a question of whether woman smoking a ciggerate is morally right or wrong.

She is smoking in a government office. And its not allowed to smoke inside government office premises. We expect our leaders to respect their offices. If you want to smoke go outside the building like every respectable person does.

on this point, I agree with Zeeshan. Sherry is wrong when she is smoking in a [government] office. She surely has the right to do whatever she'd like to do. However, I do not view this [ smoking in an office] as a trend worth following. I hope I won't be getting a cliched Pakistani response: " C'mon but who does not smoke in his office? If everyone does so then why should Sherry be singled out?"
I hate that kind of responses. Two wrongs do not make one good. Regardless of the fact, who does that, it is simply wrong even if the majority commits a wrong, we should call it wrong.
Can't our politicians ever prove themselves as role model for our coming generations? I wish my daughters were as competent as Sherry [as a journalist, I am referring to her stint at the Herald] but i would never wish to see them become so ill-mannered and arrogant.
