The video has been doing rounds on social media since Tuesday morning with netizens appreciating the woman for bravely tackling the situation instead of remaining silent. Social media users demanded strict actions against the man. While some argued that what triggered a man to grope and sexually harass her even when she was not wearing revealing clothes. The video shows the woman was wearing shalwar kameez and a big scarf to cover her.
Netizens were furious that the woman, despite being dressed modestly, was harassed sexually in broad daylight in the street. Strong reactions came from female Twitter users. Again users dragged the recent comments of PM Imran Khan in the debate regarding the clothing of women and sexual crimes.
The male Twitter users cussed the man, who seems to be an employee at a fuel station, for harassing the woman.
Netizens called for the government to implement strict actions against sex offenders in society. Sexual offenders often are not afraid of punishment in case of being caught. Hence swift justice system along with harsh punishments are needed to deter habitual offenders.
