Religion, culture, and gender issues are interconnected in diverse perspectives. The debate concerning religious and cultural adjustments in terms of gender justice plays a role to understand sexuality discourses in miscellaneous outlooks. The present study is endeavour to explore the relationship between Islam, women’s activism for gender justice and cultural discourses. It primarily focuses on the conceptual framework of the activism of women through “Aurat March” (Women March) in terms of their exertion for gender justice and how it has been perceived by the nation-state. The present research also examines different terminological and structural complexities emergent after post-march and divided the nation-state into different groups consisting of supporters and scoffers. So here in this study I argued, what makes these people to label these activists as “westernized”, “foreign agenda based” or “secularists” and how the “sufferer women’s real issues” in society and preference to “national interests” over “individual interests” can be better addressed through productive activism in coming eras.
