It’s a shame that we are living in the 21st century and women still are fighting for their safety. We live in a society which has to be constantly reminded that this shouldn’t be a fight in the first place.
There must not be a single girl who has never faced some sort of harassment or eve-teasing in her life. Whether it’s a stranded place or a crowded area, women are targeted everywhere by unruly and sick men.
Recently India was shamed because of the mass molestation which happened in Bengaluru on New Year’s eve. But it’s a disappointment that not many learnt lessons from that.
A similar incident happened during Atif Aslam’s concert in Karachi.
On January 14, the singer had taken the stage to perform and while the crowd seemed like they were having a great time, Atif noticed something and paused his concert.

He noticed that a bunch of boys in the front row were harassing a girl. The singer paused the concert and scolded the boys.
He said – “Tumne kabhi ladki nahin dekhi kya? Tumhari maa behen bhi ho sakti hai yahan par.”
He then followed it up by telling his crew to get the girl out of the situation. Atif certainly set a great example for those present at the event and for everyone around the world.
Here’s a hoping that others present at the time of that concert must have learnt a lesson from this. Kudos Atif !
