If Aurat March 2019 is taken in account, it can clearly be observed that the so-called ‘Aurat March’ is nothing but an anti-state activity aimed at tarnishing the dignity of women and tarnishing the image of Islam,

We had arranged a poster competition where female illustrators and designers were told to design posters for the march and send them in,
