As a response, Pakistani photographer, Fahhad Rajper did a series called #TryBeatingMeLightly where he took pictures of Pakistani women of all ages with their reactions to the proposed bill.

The album has garnered over 700 shares in less than 24 hours. Rajper told BuzzFeed, "#TryBeatingMeLightly is an initiative to empower women amongst us who work towards individual and collective betterment. It's an opportunity for those to voice their opinions who can't or don't. The women around me, at my home, in my friend circle and in the industry that I love."

Sadiya Azhar says, "#TryBeatingMeLightly — beat me with your intelligence, if you may. Beat me with your wit. Beat me with your smile. Beat me with your kindness. But if you dare to beat me even with a feather, I'd really beat the shit out of you. With love."
