Celebrities who condemned harassment of Lahori girl at Minar-e-Pakistan
There is no denying that women are often mistreated in various parts of Pakistan. In many cases, they are even victims of heinous crimes including rape, sexual harassment, mental torture, and a great amount of humiliation.
A recent example of a TikToker’s case is proof of the same. Despite being surrounded by male companions, she was allegedly harassed and assaulted by a mob at Minar-e-Pakistan in Lahore.
The heinous incident occurred on Independence Day when she was filming a video near Minar-e-Pakistan along with her friends when a mob of around 400 people attacked them.
She alleged that the mob picked her up and started tossing her in the air. According to the victim, she was stripped and her clothes were torn apart. The victim while narrating her ordeal said she cried for help but no one came to her rescue.
When news of such an incident spread like wildfire on Tuesday night, several Pakistani celebrities took to social media and condemned the continuation of such horrific acts in the country,
Mahira Khan, in shock, posted two stories and condemned the act.
Aseefa Bhutto Zardari also came forward and slammed all those trying to justify, defend or downplay the horrific incident at Minare-e-Pakistan. “No time for paid trolls trying to project an image of safety when women are being raped from motorways to historical sights to graveyards,” she posted.
