While there have been some memes in Kashmir,  in Pakistan people have alleged that the series is distorting the situation in  the Valley.  

Meanwhile, writer of the series Umera Ahmed has been receiving  praise on social media for the subject matter and has realised a ten-point statement on social media responding to the allegations.

She says,  Dhoop Ki Deewar  is a social tragedy and it is about people whose family members  sacrificed their lives for their respective nations. - 'Families have to face challenges and this story is dealing with those problems on a broader scale.
