This also raised the concerns of other Twitter users who asked the local people to respect the female tourists and not to harass families. Other users said that men harassing women should be punished irrespective of where they are. They appreciated the action taken by the local men for the protection of women in Hunza.
Hunza has been attracting a large influx of tourists from all over the country for the past few months. Hence, with the large number of tourists visiting incidents have been reported of tourists violating the local traditions and causing disturbance due to their unethical and rowdy behavior in these areas.
Back in June, Canadian traveler, Rosie Gabrielle, had slammed the recent trend of tourists destroying the culture and beauty of Hunza, following a rave party a few days ago.
The rave party was organized by a group of local travelers who flocked to the picturesque Hunza valley. The event was attended by a score of Instagram influencers and local performers. The videos from the party of people taking drugs, alcohol, and women dancing half-naked went viral on social media.
The rave party offended the Hunza community and they slammed the organizers for corrupting the local culture and polluting the environment.
Rosie Gabrielle, hence, took the issue on her social media and strongly disapproved of tourists bringing the toxic culture of drugs, alcohol, and rave parties to northern areas. She made a series of posts after people from the local community reached out to her to raise the issue on her social media. She posted disturbing images and videos on her Instagram story.
