Same Sex Marriages: Pakistanis fight on social media in reaction


PAKISTAN: Same sex marriages have been legalized in the United States a couple of days ago and the gay pride parades observed in many countries of Europe and North America, but since then Pakistanis are reacting or  you may say over-reacting on this issue and turned social media platforms into battle field.

Though the decision has nothing to do with Pakistani people and their state of affairs, yet they think its their duty to comment or advocate their point of view to become champions.

Majority of the youth and few popular figures shown their reaction on facebook including hearthrob of many Hamza Ali Abbasi who bashed this decision and later on criticized and trolled by people having difference of opinion with him.

My heart sank when my 12 yr old nephew asked me what is gay? and why are people celebrating gay marriage being legal in…
