Mayra Jism Mayri Marzi is a stupefied scream of women march held a few years back in Pakistan. A few words holding messages became the social uproar for all the wrong reasons, as it is an encrypted slogan blown out by half-cut liberals of the society who hardly understand the miseries women went through in and out of the home. Ali Gul Pir’s ‘Tera Jisam Meri Marzi’ is a Perfect Response Women’s Day.
It is pertinent to note, domestic violence is wrath, women face the hands of officiated criminals, and there is no law-grip to grope them. Moreover, Ali Gul Pir who is a sardonic comedian and rapper collaborated with local rapper Eva B for a Women’s Day music video, and the central idea is again debatable!
Women Day is a hell-to-pay discipline in Pakistan
For most people in Pakistan, March 8 is synonymous with the Aurat March and its infamous #MeraJismMeriMarzi slogan. Its notoriety lies in the fact that many people were unable to process that women deserve corporal unconventionality. But the slogan has been warped and distorted of its original meaning and is used by disparagers who argue that the Aurat March promotes vulgarity and obscenity. But it is safe to say that the doom of the campaign is its management who mishandles the big cause.
Ali Gul Pir’s ‘Tera Jisam Meri Marzi’ is a Perfect Response Women’s Day
To remind everyone about the true meaning of the slogan, Gul Pir released a new song, Tera Jism, Meri Marzi, where he highlights the harassment women face every day everywhere. And he hasn’t held back. The music video shows a wife being beaten by her husband and then fighting back.
The lyrics of Tera Jism, Meri Marzi are high-pitched
The song covers several types of harassment and injustice faced by women, from domestic violence to street harassment and groping. While some may comment that the lyrics are obtuse, but Gul Pir is just speaking the truth, and the truth is obnoxious. Those who are affronted by the lyrics should be more upset that women have to experience this maladroit shit 24/7.
But most significantly, it features Eva B, a fledgling, niqabi rapper from Lyari. Adding vivacity to our boring screens with her voice, Eva B echoes with most young women. Her lyrics mirror Gul Pir’s rap as a reply to the crassness. Intrepid and strident, Eva B takes the crown over her head to represent the masses; whether it is wearing a hijab, struggling to reach goals, completing their education, or fulfilling their responsibilities.
The song is not gender-biased
To the surprise of some, it does not only focus on issues faced by women alone. The rap states that daughters along with sons are not safe from the brutal incidents of rape and injustices. Eventually, the song seeks to empower women by demanding freedom of expression, conflicting a common chorus in the song: “Chup aurat achi, bolnay wali gandi [A quiet woman is a good one, the one who speaks up is bad]”.
Tera Jism, Meri Marzi has received exciting reactions, with many people catching on to the message and clapping Gul Pir for it.
Ali Gul Pir has a brilliant message for all those who believe women don’t have a right or say over their bodies and lives. https://t.co/2Uowe0Wuzf

However, some nigglers did not miss the chance to say, “Do not paint the wrong colors.” Whatever that means. What would you say about it?
