“Stop glorifying abusers”: Netizens call out LSA for nominating Feroze Khan
Bloggers and activists criticised Lux Style Awards for nominating Feroze Khan who was accused of domestic abuse by his ex-wife Aliza Sultan.
Yesterday, the management of Lux Style Awards announced the nominees for the upcoming Awards. In the category of Best TV Actor (Male) viewer’s choice, Feroze Khan is nominated for the drama “Khuda Aur Mohabbat”.
As this news circulates online, many bloggers and activists strongly criticised LSA for nominating Feroze Khan who was accused of domestic abuse by his ex-wife Aliza Sultan.
They wrote under the comment section of the LSA Instagram official page that “you (Lux) market all your products to women and this is the respect you have for women and their right to not be abused and beaten?”.
A blogger named Marium Hosein wrote, “you could have set the bar here, you could have shown some dignity, some courage perhaps. In a country, where Sarah’s and Noor’s murderers are yet to be served justice for domestic abuse – you decide to give the most famous (read problematic) actor of his time a nomination”.
Here are some of the other reactions.
