Lahore: Women in Pakistan seem to be dealing with a worsening situation where they fear for their safety in the face of rising incidents of assault.

 

After a recent horrific video of a woman being assaulted by hordes of men on August 14 in Lahore went viral on

According to The News International, two women, with a child seated between them at the back of a rickshaw somewhere in a busy street in Pakistan (many on social media said it was Lahore), can be seen in the video clip.

 

The women are visibly disturbed at the sight of a couple of motorcyclists hounding the rickshaw, catcalling and leering at the women. One man jumps onto the rickshaw, out of nowhere, and forcibly "kisses" the woman. Startled, she and the woman beside her scream, but no one intervenes, The News International reported.

Video triggered anger and uproar on social media, with many people calling for the government to take strict action against sexual harassers.

 

"Where are ALL those men and women who were spitting hate in a Space last night??? Are these women TiKTokers too?? What did they do to invite such behaviour?? Are women safe? Is anyone listening?" asked Asmat Ali Zain.

While another netizen wrote, "TERRIFYING!", The News reported.
