There is NO gender equality when it comes to violence. Even the physicality of it, a guy getting slapped vs. a woman getting slapped are very different.
What were the writers trying to show? Even if they show that he regrets slapping her at no point was it justified.
Just weeks ago, the writers and producers were all about how they are trying to incorporate the Delhi rape case and social awareness into their show. Suddenly, its okay for Asad to give death threats and slap Zoya.
I wasn't aware of the death threats. See I have a problem with another famous actor because of this very issue. He is a well known activist and helps a lot of people with his charity, however he terrorized few women in his life and also beat them up and always had his ego come in between him and others and failed to remorse or feel regret, instead all he did was hurt and kill more people/animals etc.
My point is its not a fetish, if it is only agreed upon by one party. The slap was highly unwarranted and it really sends a very bad message to the masses who watch these things and expect to have their way by hitting women, or get pissed off if she retorts back because clearly the character in this show is shown weak and feeble.
