PTI to deploy ‘bouncers’ at Lahore rally to control crowds

Bouncers

ISLAMABAD/LAHORE: After mistreatment of women at a public gathering in Islamabad, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) has decided to deploy ‘bouncers’ at its Lahore rally to avoid any untoward incident, ARY News reported.

A bouncer is an unarmed giant man deployed at private and public gatherings to control crowds. Bouncers worldwide are required to have strong built, bear good character and not addicted to the use of drugs among others.

It is mandatory for the bouncers to have passed the high school exam at least along with proper training of crowd control.

The measure is taken for the first time in Pakistan politics, for which the organizers of the rally do deserve appreciation.

PTI made the decision after mistreatment of some women at its Islamabad rally caused enough public uproar, especially in the social media that blazed with images and video clips showing women being fondled and groped by a group of male participants at the gathering.

The PTI chief also issued directives to ensure that the women activists and supporters remain at a safe distance from male participants in order to avoid mistreatment of anyone.

Following the episode in Islamabad, PTI leader Uzma Kardar had complained to party chairman Imran Khan about mistreatment doled out to her by party activists.

She wrote a ‘condemnation letter’ to Khan, clarifying him that those maltreated her were PTI activists, and not those of PML-N.

At this, the PTI chief had issued directives to ensure that the women activists and supporters remain at a safe distance from male participants at Lahore rally in order to avoid mistreatment of anyone.
