This Girl's Post About Harassment In Karachi Sums Up Every Pakistani Girl's Daily Nightmare

By Sajeer Shaikh | 9 Feb, 2018

Every now and then, we come across certain instances or narrations that strike a chord with us. They hit a nerve and leave us shaken and emotionally disturbed. One such narration is Sana Rizwan Gondal’s post about the harassment women face on a daily basis, in the tiniest of instances.

 

The post begins by describing the attire worn for a simple trip to Saddar – an area in Karachi.

However, soon she goes on to talk about the onslaught of catcalling that she has to face.

She caps it off with talking about “left wanting murder” – an emotion not lost on the women who face the same on a daily basis.

Sana’s narration is, unfortunately, the reality of many Pakistani women. The monster that is harassment is not one that’s foreign to Pakistan. Numerous women encounter some form of this terrifying monster as a routine. Therein lies the crux of the problem. The fact that it is so prevalent that many have accepted it as some form of normalcy is highly concerning.

 

The narration was appreciated by many – perhaps due to the chord it struck with the readers.

The narration was termed “real and beautiful,” which it truly is.

Some felt more strongly about the text and seemed angry.

Others empathized with Sana.

The post even encouraged people to share their own experiences.

It’s heartbreaking to see that such instances are a part of the lives of numerous women.

What’s worse is the acceptance that yeh toh hota rehta hai.

Such matters should not become a part of someone’s routine, simply due to the fact that they keep occurring. That is not and should not be okay. The honesty in Sana’s post and the undertones of hopelessness in the face of such blatant harassment sting immensely. Here’s hoping that we wake up to a world one day when such narrations no longer hold true.

What do you think about this? Let us know in the coments.
