In an attempt to mark a social problem, Anwar Maqsood also admitted what we identify today as stereotyping
The Sindhi shown in Maqsood sb & # 39; s interview is a person who violates the law of the country and indulges in corrupt practices to escape the responsibilities of earning a living and continues to make money through the system in place to cheat
People were quick to point out that the episode was an attempt to generalize the Sindhi population, which is very diverse in nature
Shame on you, Mr. Anwar Maqsood.
This is biased and embarrassing. An artist must not show his / her ethnic bias. Focusing on the entire Sindhi community is a disgrace. Racist! #AnwarMaqsood

He is so biased
He did not give positive gestures about sindhi & # 39; s in his whole fuck …

#AnwarMaqsood Do not know why some media spotters show the face of a sindhi wadera or a currupt plitician, when sindh is filled with generic sweet people.

After listening and interviewing with a Sindhi a sketch of #AnwarMaqsood one can loudly say that he is not a comedian or artist is, but a disgusting jerk full of racist shit. #ShameAnwarMaqsood

Many others also rightly pointed out that it was not considered controversial to to give back to such humor in his younger days. They felt that today it would not be such a big problem and that people would have to learn to relax a bit
Teach yourself to laugh at and try not to think about it. It will help you to be less miserable if a person … #AnwarMaqsood is not racist.

Wait a minute!
Why has everyone become so sensitive to humor? LOL can not handle it when someone points to the weakness in you. It is better to repair it. #AnwarMaqsood & # 39; contribution to art is much more than your whole existence. Stop not respecting a legend

The problem, however, is that the times have now changed. What was considered humorous at that time is no longer true. Labels such as racism and stereotypes have become prominent discussions
Both phenomena are known to influence the lives of individuals, because people who consume this content can even imitate them in real life. Although it was fine to stereotype an ethnicity or a certain group of people, in the world today no one surrendered to such behavior, because we give everyone the space to be who they want to be and not to generalize concepts to the point that they influence the lives of individuals.
There is a thin dividing line between racism and stereotypes for the sake of humor #AnwarMaqsood has followed the line for years, racism was funny then, people have evolved, racism is not funny anymore.

The reason why such a backlash was observed was because artists and artists are expected to keep pace with the changes in society
Thinkers, writers, poets, artists, intellectuals are mean to be reformists for society, nation, world / universe. But the short-sighted thinking of # AnwarMaqsood justifies that he has not yet grown up intellectually. #PoorAnwarMaqsood https://t.co/q2a7jO5tN6

It is important that they are sensitized to be able to respect sentiments, no misrepresentation and not give in to stereotyping because it is only an act of disrespect. This specific case will also force other artists to realize the atmosphere in which they work, the kind of access that the public has and the need to be objective in their narrative creation.
It is also true that the work of Anwar Maqsood has always been a reflection of society. The goal has always been to change the masses
Although nobody can doubt the authenticity and dedication of the goal, the reality is actually that times have now changed. Even if artists want to indulge in social criticism or criticism of the system that is present through satire or comedy, it must adapt to modern techniques to ensure that nobody is respected.
The truth is always difficult to digest, by the way, Pakistani never accept our mistakes and that is the main reason behind our destruction. This man spoke very much that actually the PPP policy remained #AnwarMaqsood

To all people who think that #AnwarMaqsood is a racist, it knows what is racist, is everything. For decades he has shown the true face of the people of Pakistan. Earlier, the nation used that as a constructive criticism. But now they think they are the best nation

#AnwarMaqsood A big LOL for everyone trying to say this as racist. I think he shows the true face of what is happening in Sindh van Ages

This controversial video also shows the amount see the importance that artists should now give their words. If the video had been formulated correctly, people would have realized that it was not a generalization, but rather an attempt to show one of the many aspects of Sindhi life. It is undeniable that such issues exist, but their treatment must now change if they are adopted by artists.
This specific event indicates how far we have come as a society
There was a time when it was considered perfectly normal to surrender to racism and stereotypes. And since that was the norm, we often lag behind with the question whether we will or will not see history with today's reference framework. While that is under discussion, it is clear that we have come a long way. We are at a point in history where we are aware of the sensitivities of people, we begin to talk about the diversity of life, and we push people to be better versions of themselves.
The same problem was faced by many fans of FRIENDS, recently when younger audiences thought a lot of the jokes, mainly aimed at Chandler and Ross, as homophobic and archaic for the present time.
The fact that Mr. Maqsood apologized showed that he is willing to learn and be adaptive, as an artist and anyone who is willing to accept their mistakes and really to learn should be welcomed
Apologies should always be welcome! It is also a lesson for others! Let's respect all languages and various idientitues! #AnwarMaqsood

He represents a generation that may need to catch up, so that art itself does not die. And this incident is not about addressing a certain person, but rather about encouraging change. So the next time you talk about it, instead of being the judge of someone's character; focus more on what we need to change and the role that you and I can play in it.
Model Alyzeh Gabol tried to "embrace her darkness" in a new photo shoot But it is really problematic
The racist make-up of this Pakistani morning show Appearance is absolutely ridiculous and people are furious
