Sar-e-Rah is Gaining A lot of Attention in Pakistani Social Media
Internet users claim that they haven't recently seen a Pakistani play this amazing. It discusses several serious topics, like intersex people.
With just four episodes since its debut last month, the drama Sar-e-Rah has managed to win over the hearts of the viewers. A touching scene between a father and his intersex kid on a beach was shown in the most recent episode, and their chat touched viewers’ hearts. Describing it as a “breath of fresh air”, they complimented the drama for tackling this serious subject with such sensitivity and creating a discussion on the tolerance of intersex persons and their decisions.
The lives of women and intersex individuals, two vulnerable and marginalized groups, are explored in the drama Sar-e-Rah. It is created by Ahmed Bhatti and features a cast that includes Nabeel Zafar, Saboor Ali, Saba Qamar, Muneeb Ali, and Sunita Marshal. At the moment in issue, Zafar portrays the father who, after speaking with his son, has a dialogue with God in his brain and begs to be there for him at every turn to shield him from this harsh world and provide for him in whatever way he can.
Rarely do Pakistani television screens depict such love and support for intersex people, particularly from on-screen parents. People on social media appreciate the heartbreaking moment.
Not only that but people appreciate the message and the performances of the actors especially Nabeel Zafar in episode 4 during a particular scene where he supports and explains to his third-gender child how they may feel and how they are free to choose to be whatever they want to be.
Sar-e-rah is such a breath of fresh air in Pakistan's drama industry.

I wasn’t expecting this but what an INCREDIBLE message by Nabeel Zafar! 👏🏼 He beautifully talked about gender differences to his son, something which should’ve been taught WAY before but we couldn’t, all because of extremist elements in the society.pic.twitter.com/kKCRTopdGB

The sort of father figure that each child requires.
Bravo to the writer and actors in #ARYDigital drama #sarerah for showing how fathers need to connect with their children no matter their sex and #gender. Lack of love and support pushes gender-variant children towards #suicide, mental health issues, and substance abuse!

Netizens believe that designer Maria B, who had an issue with this particular scene, is inciting unwarranted animosity and undermining the advancements being made in this situation.
Haters must not get to set the agenda for art and culture in Pakistan. I am convinced that #MariaB is using bots to spread hate and should be investigated. @arydigitalasia #SarERah is a courageous and outstanding depiction of a young man’s struggle for respect and dignity!

Millions of people praised the “progressive” move towards acceptance online, but Maria B chose to criticise the scenario for emphasising it’s purportedly “USAID supported” elements to further the cause of accepting the LGBTQ+ storyline in Pakistani youth.
#MariaB Gender corrective surgery is advisable to be carried out at a later age and after the individual has decided which gender he or she chooses to affirm. Let's celebrate the fact that #SareRah started a conversation. pic.twitter.com/o53DSndO7Y
