Sixth population census in Pakistan has started and so the trolls by social media users who are expressing their concerns and expectations in a quite funny way.
Here is how population census is making people think on different issues that may emerge or may resolve as a result.
Basic issue was with very name of Mardam Shumari
- Someone mocked feminists who would think that using the word “Mardam” is way too misogynistic as it sounds for men.
Why Mardam shumaari, why not Aurtam shumari.

It was not only one user who raised a concern, after so many people highlighted the issue, someone with right knowledge intervened to explain the etymology of the very word, informing that Mardam means people not only men.

Users had some other ideas too to resolve this gender biasedness.
Mardam Shumari naam say tu aisa lugta hay ye sirf mardo ki shumari hay, Aurten Shamil Nhi? Naam aisa hona chihye Like Insan shumari, etc
