Showbiz personalities react strongly to Lahore incident
Showbiz personalities have expressed grief and anger over the issue of abuse of a woman in Greater Iqbal Park, Lahore.
Actress Mahira Khan sarcastically condemned the incident and said that she was sorry, she had forgotten that it was her own fault, poor 400 people could not stop themselves.
Damn I’m sorry.. I keep forgetting – it was Her fault!! Poor 400 men.. they couldn’t help it. #MinarePakistan

Model and host Anusha Ashraf also expressed her anger and said that she thought that if a man in my country would harass her in public, 10 men would come to her rescue but in Lahore, she saw a woman being harassed by 400 men. Feeling bad.
There was a time I felt if a man harassed me in public there would be 10 other men who’d step up to protect me in my country. After seeing the #minarepakistan video of 1 woman violated by #400men with Pakistan’s very foundation as it’s backdrop, I feel sickened to my core

Actress Aiza Khan posted a story on Instagram in which she wrote that stay safe at home, life is in danger, all this has been said so far because of Corona, it is a shame, it is a fear to stay safe now. Stay inside because your honour is at stake outside.
Actress Maryam Nafees wrote that she was not alone, she was in the daylight, she was in fully covered, she was in Muharram, the call to prayer was going on, even if all this was not happening, no one was allowed to do so.
• Akeli nahi thi. Din mein thi. Puray libaas mein thi. National monument pe thi. Muharram mein thi. Azaan horahi thi.
Yeh sab na hota tab bhi kisi ko ijazat nahi thi!#MinarEPakistan #400Men #SexualTerrorism
