Sang e Maah tries to combat a societal blight known as “Ghag.”
The major subject or rather societal concern highlighted to viewers in the first episode of Sang-e-Maah is that of Ghag. Ghag is a Pashtun ritual in which a Pashtun man shoots three bullets outside a girl’s house, claiming her as his and stating that no one else is allowed to marry her.
The drama attempts to highlight a societal evil known as “ghag,” according to a post by Hania Aamir, who has played Gul Meena.
“This is accomplished in a variety of ways. “Occasionally, the ‘would-be’ groom shoots multiple bullets outside the woman’s house, claiming her for marriage,” Hania wrote.
Ghag is a ritual in which “a guy makes claims to a lady to marry her by force,” she said on Instagram. She called ghag a “social evil” that is “destructive” and has destroyed countless lives.
The actor explained that the statement “suggests that this girl is my bride” and that anyone who attempts to submit a proposal would “face a nasty destiny.” In her caption, she used the hashtag Sang e Mah.
Sang-e-Mah may have won hearts, but some Pashtuns are dissatisfied with their portrayal:
While most viewers are praising Atif Aslam’s first drama Sang-e-Mah and its photography and directing, Viewers were “charmed” by Aslam’s persona Hilmand, and the “enchanting realm of Sang-e-Mah” drew them in.
but on the other hand many Pashtuns on Twitter are dissatisfied with the way they have been depicted. As this tweet is persuading that Pashtun community is not at all in awe of the thick Pashto accent like us cause according to them they do not speak Urdu like that at all.
