Girl con­fronts ha­rasser at Quaid's mau­soleum

The Financial Daily - - NATIONAL -

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.

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.
