In the first visual Yasra emphasized on the choice of getting married, “Who to marry, how and where, getting to decide all this by yourself is a person’s fundamental right. If the decision to marry turns out to be a mistake or if the marriage you willingly chose to undertake becomes a bitter experience, to end such a marriage is also a person’s fundamental right.”

She continued, “Forced marriages and divorce shaming are not ways to respect tradition these are blatant attacks on basic human rights and sadly the most common and accepted ones around us. This needs to STOP! Figure out what you are going to do about it.”

Concluding her post, the Churail’s star urged supporters to take a stand for the suffering. “Stand up for your daughters, sisters, friends, female relatives and abused neighbours or that random woman being beaten up by her husband in a restaurant while he says ‘yeh hamara aapas ka maamla hai’ [this is our personal matter] before you get to carry a [loved one] of your own to the graveyard just because you were too busy being polite!”
