Celebs protest Motorway rape incident
Pakistani stars staged a protest outside the Karachi Press Club against the motorway gang-rape incident and demanded justice for the victim woman.
Talking about the crime against women and sexual harassment, Mahira Khan said the problem stems from the mindset of males.
Later, taking to Instagram, the actress shared a picture from the protest with a caption that read: “We demand a secure nation for all women!! At home, on the streets, at work, alone, not alone, with kids, without kids, in a skirt or in a burka. Wherever she may be, whoever she may be - we demand basic rights of safety. Proud of my industry for coming together for this cause - United we are stronger, our voices are more powerful and impactful.”
Talking to the media, Ayesha Omar said that no one is safe here. Why are we paying taxes when public execution is not a solution? she asked.
Actress Sarah Khan said: “This is the first time I have come out for a protest. In our country, women are not safe. I feel that not even our children are safe. We should guide our men how to respect women in society. And the rapists should be hanged publicly.”
Actor Yasir Hussain said that CCPO Lahore has spoken foolishly, now it is necessary to teach men how to get up and sit down and how to talk, how to sit up, how to walk and how to speak. Now is the time to explain all this to men, and women.
Other celebrities also held placards demanding security for women and severe punishments for sex offenders.
