Well-known author Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar, who has taken a hard line on various issues, is once again under fire.
Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar recently appeared on a talk show on a local private TV channel and during a discussion about four marriages, he got into an argument with a female social worker and guest Ailia Zehra and left the show.
Khalil-ur-Rehman left the show after the host insisted on speaking respectfully.
The channel’s staff also tried to bring the author back, but Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar refused to return.
Just had a horrible encounter with toxic masculinity. Khalilur Rehman Qamar lost his marbles during a talk show when I called him out over his hateful rhetoric. He left the show while yelling at the top of his lungs. Called me a RAW agent and spewed sexist slurs pic.twitter.com/KPAKHqXv1k

Later, social activist Ailia Zehra also tweeted about the incident on TV and Khalil-ur-Rehman’s accent.
According to Ailia Zehra, Khalil-ur-Rehman used RAW’s agent and immoral words for her.
Following Ailia’s tweet, there is a reaction on Twitter against the inappropriate lip and accent used for Ailia.
Khalil-ur-Rehman’s point of view regarding this particular incident is yet to be known.
Keep in mind that this is not the first time that well-known author Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar has come under fire for his harsh tone by social activists.
He also had a heated discussion with social activist Marvi Sarmad on a private TV program last year during a discussion on the issue of the Women’s March, which drew strong criticism on social media at the same time millions of people have supported him for his stance.
