Najam Sethi’s son Ali Sethi allegedly married his friend, Salman, Ali Sethi is a well-known singer. There was a mixed response to this marriage on social media. Some people congratulated and some people expressed their anger at how a boy could be married to a boy.
Who is Salman Toor – Age, Husband, Family, Ali Sethi?
Salman Toor, an artist of Pakistani descent who discovered his canvas in the colourful tapestry of New York City, stands at the crossroads of two worlds.
A master of the paintbrush at the age of 40, his works of art bring to life the aspirations and stories of young South Asian men, setting their tales against the colourful backdrops of South Asia or the pulsating heart of New York City.
Others, however, believe that it is their unalienable right to do as they please and that they should be permitted the freedom to marry whoever they love regardless of the boundaries of gender and religion. While many have criticised the “Pasoori” star for not adhering to Islamic teachings and have called for his boycott.
Although neither of the artists has publicly denied their rumoured marriage, the discussions surrounding their alleged union show how the dynamics of public discourse on LGBTQ+ identities and relationships in Pakistan’s cultural landscape are evolving. Conversations about love, identity, and acceptance continue to be sparked by the rumours as supporters and detractors wait for more confirmation.
In the meantime, Ali Sethi rose to the top trend on Twitter as word of his wedding spread. While some people praised him, others expressed their vehement opposition.
“Ali Sethi wed a man by the name of Salman Toor? Is it real?,” a user asked.
Ali sethi got married to a guy named salman toor? Is it truee? 🙄

LGBTQ IS HARAM. If Ali Sethi and toor did this, they will face jhnum and everyone supporting it or choosing silent over it will bear consequences. I am no one to give fatwa on this but it is clearly mentioned in Quran. pic.twitter.com/aZS8AX9LFK

On His Sexuality: Salman Toor
Salman Toor revealed his sexual orientation to The New Yorker in 2022, stating that his parents “didn’t accept that,” and that they both eventually accepted it “more with tolerance than with understanding.”
Is gay marriage illegal in Pakistan under the law?
In Pakistan, gay marriage is against the law. If Ali Sethi’s illegitimate union is confirmed, he will be a criminal subject to Pakistani law’s sanctions. This type of myth and the sickest behaviour has already been rejected by our society.
Liberals in our generation ought to consider where their liberalism is guiding their offspring. Their future generations will be wiped out if this keeps happening.
