As the country is outraged with the recently reported cases of harassment, journalist and documentary maker Sabin Agha comes forward sharing her own account of harassment at Mazar-e-Quaid in Karachi a few years ago.

Taking it to social media, Sabin Agha said, “I am not a TikToker or YouTuber. I am a #journalist. I went to Mazar Quaid in Karachi for reporting on #14AugustAzadiDay a few years ago. I was reporting, doing my job, not hurling #kisses as this victim-blaming nation is accusing that TikToker girl.”

“Some 100 odd frustrated boys & men attacked me & my cameraman at Mazar Quaid. My cameraman and his camera were shoved back & forth/ but I was manhandled. I was gropped on every part of my body. My hair was pulled from the back & on both sides. My clothes & dupatta were pulled by men,” she added.

She went,” At one point someone tried to wrap my dupatta around my neck to choke me, all the while gropping me with hysterical laughs and every existing cussword hurled at me. When someone grabbed my arm & pulled me outside that mob of sexually frustrated boys & men.”

“With shaking nerves & body I went to police van standing at the doorstep of Mazar Quaid, who watched the entire episode. I asked them y did they not come to help. Police response: “bibi hum 4 hay aur wo 150. Hum kese rok sktay thy. Ap ayee kiyun,” Sabin shared.
