Zaroon is a hypocritical character, with many double standards..the best part is that he admits he is one..it goes to show you guys to do realize how they have their double standards and how they have the tendency to treat women as inferior.
Another point I'd like to make here is..Umera as a writer is showing what goes in our society..she isn't showing that Zaroon is the perfect guy around nor is she showing that Kashaf is exemplary..she's nitpicking Zaroon and Kashaf and showing how we as people actually are.
What I am liking about this drama is that the characters are soo realistic. Noone is too good to be true...not even the hero or heroine! They all have some weaknesses. Zaroon is a typical male, he is from a liberal family, is going around with girlfriends and enjoying but he has another set of rules for women. It's hypocracy, but that is what is actually happening all around us!
I don't think that the assaults can be blamed on women for their attires. I have seen and experienced that it doesn't matter what you wear...it all depends on the mentalities of the men. In Europe, I can roam around in jeans and western attire, without getting any disgusting comments or gazes from the men. They respect you. But in Pakistan, wearing proper shalwar kamiz with a big chadar on my head, I have experinced bad behaviour when going shopping with my mum. In the beginning it was shocking for me, because I thought that Pakistan is a muslim country and we learn to respect women in our religion. But unfortunately...we don't practice what we learn from our religion.
These people may have strict rules for the women in their house but go out and don't show any respect to women outside.
