Enough man, enough.

It is no secret that sexual harassment is quite prevalent in this country.

Whether it’s through personal experiences or hearing it through your family and friends, it is almost scary, how much women in Pakistan are subjected to harassment on a daily basis no matter where you are.

Fortunately, thanks to social media, accounts of sexual harassment are much easier to identify, especially through threads on Twitter.

Disgusting.

According to the thread, the victim herself was afraid to come forward with the allegations. She was nervous that people would judge her for sitting in the front seat of the car.

Can you imagine that? This girl was sexually violated by an older man and she was too afraid to come forward because of the fact that people would judge her for sitting in the front seat of the car.

It doesn’t matter if you are a man, a woman, a little girl or boy – sitting in the front seat of a car does not mean you are open to sexual advances.

Like honestly, what the actual fuck. Are you saying I can’t sit in the front seat of a car, in a car service, with a ‘vetted driver’ who is supposed to be upholding standards of an international franchise? Because I will probably be harassed? Are you JOKING? How is this okay? People like this need to be held accountable for their actions.

Either way, people were not happy with the Uber driver’s sick behaviour.

MangoBaaz reached out to Uber to see what they had to say about the incident and they said:

In the era of the #MeToo movement, we are lucky enough to have Pakistanis involved in the efforts to bring victims their justice. Until and unless we figure out a way to effectively lessen the rate of harassment, social media is the only tool we have to really bring light to the horrible experiences.
