For the past two years, the Sharmeen Obaid Chennai Film Academy has been promoting environmental pollution and other causes, including violence against women and children, including their rights.

One of the most important issues in this regard is the awareness of ‘sexual harassment’.

The next video, about 3 minutes and 14 seconds related to ‘sexual harassment’, is explained in simple words what is ‘sexual harassment’ and what is the Pakistani law in this regard?


According to the video, the ‘complaint of sexual harassment’ is usually told to the woman that these actions and problems are with the whole world, so they should not pay attention to things that are wrong advice.

Video harassment cases have also been identified that ‘sexual harassment’ can happen to anyone in his or her home, at his/her workplace, during public rides and in any public place.


Sexual harassment in the video has been identified as ‘immoral conversation, inappropriate molestation and inappropriate contact’, even in the category of sexual harassment, even molesting and abusing children is an illegal and punishable offense under Section 509.

Awareness video states that under Section 509 of the sexual harassment of women in the workplace, the accused can be prosecuted and punished with imprisonment up to three years or a fine of up to five million rupees or both.

The animated video states that any company or entity is obligated under Section 509 to distribute information about ‘sexual harassment’ in the workplace and adopt stringent rules to prevent ‘sexual harassment’.

Before ‘Sexual Harassment’, the SOC Film Academy released animated videos on issues such as domestic violence against women and the filing of an FIR.
