Veer Zaara

Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: Movie for you women to watch

Submitted by Lina (United Kingdom), Jan 19, 2020 at 15:25

I have seen Veer Zaara, and if anything I'd say it's more anti-muslim than anything. Had you observed more carefully you will see that the Pakistani fiancé is portrayed as backward and oppressive, while Shahrukh's Hindu/Sikh character is the opposite, loving Zaara for who she is rather than as a possession. Veer respects Zaara because she's a woman, not because she's Muslim. She literally runs away from her Muslim fiancé LOL.

Watch it again!
