Ha­rass­ment is a very com­mon prob­lem faced by fe­male gen­der es­pe­cially in pub­lic places these days. Ac­tual mean­ing of ha­rass­ment is un­com­fort­able ac­tions shown by strangers, for ex­am­ple like whistling, com­ment­ing and point­ing fin­gers etc. Other than Pak­istan peo­ple who pos­sess dif­fer­ent faith, re­li­gion or na­tion­al­ity also face ha­rass­ment. But in Pak­istan specif­i­cally only ladies face ha­rass­ment. Women are so pow­er­less in this coun­try that they can­not even raise their voices on such heart­less act.

Ha­rass­ment in pub­lic trans­port is a very com­mon phe­nom­e­non and needs to be checked by all means. As a cit­i­zen of Pak­istan, I re­quest Gov­ern­ment of Pak­istan to pay at­ten­tion to this prob­lem and es­ure a guar­an­teed and healthy ha­rass­ment-free en­vi­ron­ment to the ladies. — Karachi
