The other day I was assaulted and I spoke up about it on Instagram. I woke up to find my story has reached media & I began receiving a lot of backlash from the public, blaming me for my attire or appearance or that I have not been integrated enough to earn any respect. Rather the blaming a woman for being sexually harassed, let’s discuss the real issue: lack of men being held accountable for their harassment. It’s frustrating that media neglected my praise of Pakistan beauty & humanitarian work, but has captured my bad experience (which also happened to me in the Canada because hey, there’s good and bad everywhere!) and I feel ashamed that MY voice was heard yet thousands of my Pakistani sisters have been neglected. I do hope that my sisters understand I stand with them in solidarity and am using my platform to help us as women and for our future daughters inchallah. A massive Thank you @sky__is_the__limit_ for raising awareness on this as she has experienced similar issues in Pakistan, and thank you to Naeem Asghar from Express News who shared my truth.
