Iqra Aziz wants people to stop judging mothers who have C-section births

Actor Iqra Aziz took to social media to share her thoughts on an issue that isn’t publicly talked about too often — the judgment many mothers receive when they deliver their child via a Caesarean section as opposed to a natural delivery.

The Suno Chanda actor shared her husband Yasir Hussain’s Instagram story about appreciating women who’ve delivered through C-section and added her own thoughts on the matter. “I probably wouldn’t have had the confidence to tell the world how Kabir was born because of our maashra [society] being judgemental (I admit I was one of them at some point),” she said, after which she addressed Hussain. “But my love, by (sharing this post) you have made me feel loved and appreciated. Love you for always giving me the confidence.

“Shout out to all the ladies who went through a major surgery to bring their child safely into this world,” continued Aziz. She went on to direct the reader’s attention to her husband’s post in case the reader is a mother who’s had a C-section.

In Pakistan, there is strong prejudice against Caesarean sections. They are often considered as ‘easy births’, a prejudice which translates into judgement against the mother who has them. Mothers who’ve had Caesarean deliveries are often looked down upon and we’re glad Aziz, and Hussain, brought up this oft ignored societal issue to light by bravely sharing her own experience.

Aziz and Hussain became parents to little Kabir Hussain in 2021. Aziz often shares about her experiences as a new mother on social media. In November, she posted a vlog showing a day in her life as a new mother, highlighting the struggles and joys motherhood brought to her life.

“Sometimes things get way too difficult, it’s tiring and upsetting and this is motherhood.” The actor said in the vlog, alluding to moments when everything crashes down and you need to find your way up. “There are emotions and lots of other things but it’s most certainly not easy,” said a teary eyed Aziz, who then assured herself that she will be “alright in a short while.”

On Quds Day, PM Shehbaz restates Pakistan’s solidarity for the Palestinian people.

In his speech on Juma tul Wida and the International Day of Al-Quds, he vehemently condemned the crimes committed by Israel in Gaza.

According to him, thirty-two thousand Palestinians—including seventeen thousand children—have died in Gaza since October of last year, and seventy thousand more have been injured. Access to humanitarian supplies has been purposefully restricted, and hospitals, refugee camps, and children’s schools have all been targeted.
He lamented that the unprovoked bombing of defenseless civilians in Gaza persisted in spite of the UN security council’s decision calling for a ceasefire.

According to the prime minister, Pakistan will stand by its armless Palestinian brothers and sisters diplomatically and morally until they are freed from Israeli occupation and an independent state is established in accordance with pre-1967 borders.

On the occasion of Juma tul Wida, the Prime Minister made a plea to Muslims worldwide, including those in Pakistan, asking them to remember their brothers and sisters in Palestine and Kashmir and to pray to God Almighty for the ability to overcome their challenges.

On the eve of Juma tul Wida, he also urged the country to pray for Pakistan’s peace, security, progress, and prosperity.

Hina Parvez Butt, MPA for the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), proposed the resolution. Concerns on the rising number of stray kite string events in the province were voiced in the resolution.

The resolution stated that while stray strings have taken many lives in Punjab, police are unable to contain the growing issue.

In her motion, the PML-N MPA urged the Punjab Assembly House to declare that offences involving kites and strings are not subject to bail, and they also urged judges to deny bail to those accused of the aforementioned crimes.

It is important to note that after a young person in Faisalabad died, Punjab police launched an operation to stop kite flying and sales in the region.

Public announcements cautioned the public against kite flying, while the police filed cases and detained makers of metal and kite strings.

On the orders of Chief Medical Officer Maryam Nawaz, police had on March 25 registered 245 cases and detained 242 kite flyers around the province.

In addition, the Karachi commissioner banned the selling of kites and their flying within the city after multiple people were gravely hurt by loose kite strings.
