Motivational speaker Qasim Ali Shah landed himself in controversy for making misogynist remarks during an interview, a clip of which went viral on social media.

“Go to schools where our daughters are studying and till matric, they are not taught how to be good wives, even though in a woman’s life, the ultimate role of a women is to be a good wife and a good mother..,” he shared in the interview.

The speaker’s recent remarks are being viewed as sexist by some. While others believe that his remarks were blown out of proportion.


As the clip went viral, many are questioning him on why is he only concerned with the upbringing of daughters and not of sons.

Others are criticising him over his anti-women feedback, saying that women’s goal in life shouldn’t just be limited to being good wives and mothers.

Comedian Ali Gul Pir trolled Qasim for being a misogynist.

There have been multiple incidents when prominent personalities in Pakistan have made misogynist remarks in the past. Member of National Assembly Talal Chaudhary making lewd remarks about Firdous Ashiq Awan, and soap-opera writer Khalil-ur-Rehman using abusive and foul language with Marvi Sirmed, are two of the recent examples.
