Whether you are a man or a woman, you're in Delhi or in Dubai, harassment can happen to you anywhere, anytime. It doesn't matter what type of clothes the person is wearing or what time of the day it is, this kind of struggle is faced by people in almost every part of the world and it's outrageous.
In Lahore, a woman came across two men staring at her while she was driving on the road.
"In order to give a merging car space to go ahead of me I stopped my slow moving car and honked my horn and about 10 to 15 seconds after I stopped two ultimately very blind gentleman on a motorcycle rear-ended my car going at quite a speed. Although I was baffled as to how they didn’t see my stopped car I pulled over a little further down the road to assess the damage without saying anything further to those gentleman."
As reported by Parhlo, this woman was harassed in Lahore, what they say is one of the safer cities in Pakistan, while she was driving from the comfort of her own car during daylight.
"Not 15 minutes later (let’s assume there is something in the air today) four gentleman on two motorcycles proceeded to amuse themselves by playing cat and mouse and swerving dangerously and repeatedly around my car and trying to run me off a road. After about 5 minutes of trying to speed up, slow down and change lanes I just decided to document what was happening."
The victim took to social media and shared her experience in a brief note. Read her entire post below:
Agreed, we all have been there, trying to get past the uneasiness caused by such incidents. This needs to end because it is not acceptable at all. What this woman did is something to learn from because it's really important to speak up for such intolerable acts.
