Yet another physical abuse case with a woman happened in Pakistan and people once again felt sorry as the government has been failed to implement a law to avoid such incidents.
A woman named Ayesha Akram was groped by more than 400 men at Minar-e-Pakistan when she was making a TikTok video with her friends on Independence Day. TikToker was harassed, molested, and abused alongside her friends for more than two hours.
While reacting to the incident, people from different walks of life including celebrities felt sorry for the victim and bashed the government authorities for failing to protest yet another woman.
I can’t believe what I just saw!!! I’ve said it before and I will say it again – make an example out of these men!

مینار پاکستان پر اپنی ہی بہن بیٹی پر ٹوٹ پڑنے والو آج تم نے دنیا کو دکھایا ہے کہ تم اپنے دین اور نبی کے احکامات کی کیسے توہین کرتے ہو۔ خدا تمہیں غارت کرے۔

What they will say: Pakistan is an Islamic Republic and medinay ki riyasat
What is the reality: Woman molested by 400 men at Minare Pakistan on Independence Day during Azaan.
We preach religion and patriotism here but we follow hedionism and barbarism. #minarepakistan

Now that we hav a plethora of evidence of what unfolded at #minarepakistan Can we finally see our police in action by putting those men responsible for this gruesome act behind the bars? Is this too much to ask for our women?#400men #lahoreincident #needanswers #protectourwomen

Another day, another incident, another moment we find ourselves collectively hanging our heads in shame.
Action, not just condemnation.
Bring the perpetrators to justice.

They didn’t care for sanctity of another person’s body, they didn’t care about sanctity of #MinarePakistan, they didn’t care about sanctity of #Muharram and they didn’t care that stripping a women carries the death penalty. Laws alone can’t fix our moral and social degenaration.

There is nothing I can say that hasn’t been said already. I am afraid… for myself, for all of us. What else has to happen for every single person to accept the fact that women are not safe in Pakistan.
WOMEN ARE NOT SAFE IN PAKISTAN. #400men #minarepakistanincident

It is pertinent to mention here that Punjab police has registered FIR against 400 unknown men after several videos of the incidents went viral on social media. Prime Minister Imran Khan and Chief Minister of Punjab Usman Buzdar have personally taken notice of the incident and assured justice to Ayesha.
