Sanam Saeed defends Asma Aziz, says leaked dance video doesn’t justify torture

Acclaimed actor Sanam Saeed has come out in support of the domestic abuse victim Asma Aziz on Tuesday saying an old dance video does not justify the torture inflicted upon her.

In a Twitter post, Sanam came out defending the victim of abuse from Lahore while also questioning when people will really understand the meaning of consent.

“It’s like saying if a prostitute was raped it’s her fault anyway. When will some of you really understand the meaning of #consent?” she tweeted.

The ‘Zindagi Gulzar Hai’ actor continued, “An old leaked video of #asmaaziz dancing, does not justify her being tortured for refusing to dance when she doesn’t feel like. Have mercy!”

Politicians and other prominent personalities have also highlighted the case on their social platforms with some people resorting to ‘victim blaming’, while others retaliated saying an old leaked video of her dancing did not vindicate the violence she was subjected to.
