Famed Pakistani actor Ahmed Ali Butt has drawn immense ire from after he came forth criticizing the Aurat March in an Instagram post last week. 

It all started when comedy actor Butt posted a picture on his official Instagram account condemning the women march, held on March 8, by writing: 

“It’s amazing to see some women hold a banner of ‘Apni Roti Khud Banao’ (Make your own chapatti) as if they make rotis (chapattis) everyday in their homes… bhabi, Instagram ya Snapchat se fursat milegi toh maloom hoga na ke roti kesi pakti hai (You’ll only know how to make a chapatti once you’re done using Instagram or Snapchat).”

He further added, "Stop spreading hatred towards men in the name of feminism , he further wrote that true feminism is when men and women share responsibilities, that if a woman cooks food for husband then husband should go to school to pick children, or if women do job then husband should make kids go to sleep." 

In the end he also wrote that a only a helping woman completes a man, and a woman with supporting man is free. 

Ahmed's cringe-worthy post has not gone down well amongst social media users who have   been irked over the actor's highly problematic Instagram message. 

While some commented Ahmed has completely misconstrued the idea of feminism, others said he has failed to grasp the idea and purpose behind the march.
