Yasra Rizvi, who often spoke against the stigmas surrounding love marriages, has now shared disturbing images of herself with shackles around her neck and hands, to represent visually what forced marriages in the garb of arranged marriages look like.
She wrote in a post that “Stand up for your daughters and sisters and friends and 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’ before you get to carry one of your own to the graveyard just because you were too busy being polite!”.
Yasra Rizvi wrote in her 2nd post that “Shaadi aik social contract hai jisme huqooq aur faraaiz dono fariqain ke hote hain, isse umer qaid ya sazaa-e-moat samajh laina khud apne saath zyaadti hai!”
Shaadi kerna ya na kerna kisi bhi insaan ki zindagi ka aik ehem aur zaati faisla hai. Kis se, kaisi aur kyun, yeh decide kerna her insaan ka bunyaadi haq hai. Aur agar yeh faisla kerne mein koi ghalati ho jaaye aur apni marzi se ki gayi shaadi. Bhi aik na khushgawar experience ban jaaye tou usse khatam ker daina bhi her insaan ka buniyaadi haq hai. Yeh koi maghribi agenda nahi balkay woh shakhsi azaadi hai. Jo her mazhab aur her qaanoon common sense ke tehet sab afraad ko daita hai.

Kyunke kisi bhi shaadi ke sab se gehre asraat bahar haal shaadi kerne waale pe hi murattab hote hain. Achay buray consequences ki zad mein pehle miyaan aur biwi hi aate hain. Pur-sukoon zindagi bhi wohi dono saath guzaarte hain aur sukoon tabaah kerne waale jhagrray bhi unhi ke darmyaan hote hain. Jo shaadi amooman poori zindagi ke liye 2 logon ke shab o roz ka faisla kerti hai. Woh unn 2 logon ke elawa kisi aur ka faisla kaise ho sakti hai? Ya yeh kaise munaasib hai ke iss faislay mein unki ghair mashroot razamandi na shaamil ho?
Mashwara daina aur apni marzi kisi ki poori zindagi pe mussallat ker daina dou alag baatein hain. 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.
