Samina Ahmed and Manzar Sehbai are both veteran actors of the Pakistani Entertainment industry. The two have been prominent faces for decades. They have fans across generations. Samina Ahmed was last seen in the tv serial “Suno Chanda” and Manzar Sehbai was the beloved grandfather in “Alif”
The two tied the knot at the age of 70. They broke the stereotype that forces older people to stay single and alone if they’re divorced/widowed or simply never married.
The news broke of their wedding and it blew up on social media. Everyone was talking about it.
But like always, the people who love to troll online made their way to pictures of the couple too. They decided that they knew better and went too far in the comments.
People who say things like this need to know that this isn’t okay. You shouldn’t be trying to ruin someone’s happy day with words like this. Just because you’re hiding behind a screen doesn’t mean that you can go around saying things like this like it’ll never get back to you.
For a country that is always talking about weddings, we sure have a lot of criticism for people who do get married. This needs to change. We need to start celebrating peoples’ happiness instead of trying to tear everyone down.
Even though cruel people exist. The majority of the response to the news was wholesome. People are congratulating the couple and literally saying that they’ve brought some good news in this really hard year and have warmed everyone’s hearts.
It’s very very important to be mindful of what you say. Whether you say it in person or over the internet. Know the difference between “freedom of speech/ having an opinion” and “hate speech”.
We pray that this beautiful couple has a life together that’s full of love and happiness. They’ve really proved that love conquers all and that you can still be with the love of your life even if you’ve been around for 70 years ❤️
