Girl confronts, films harasser at Quaid’s mausoleum
KARACHI: In what can be termed a brave move, a girl not only shamed but filmed a man for taking her pictures without consent on her visit to Quaid’s mausoleum in Karachi, ARY News reported.
In a video posted on social media, the girl claimed that she approached a bearded man inside the park around Quaid’s mausoleum after he clicked her pictures and took away his phone.
The girl can be seen shaming the man after she found not only her picture but some other girls’ pictures in the phone.
“I want your family and friends to know what you are doing on the pretext of visiting Quaid’s mausoleum,” the girl can be seen saying to the man. The man, on the other hand, kept hiding his face.
Sadly, the mausoleum’s administration took no action against the harasser who reportedly went scot-free.
