Actress Ayesha Omar has said that she feels safe if she goes out of the house even at one o’clock in the night abroad, but this is not the case in her own country.
Ayesha Omar’s statement came after a TV statement by Omar Sheikh, a Punjab police officer and CCPO Lahore, in which he targeted and Blamed a woman who was raped on the motorway at Gujjarpura.
The Lahore CCPO said the woman should not have left the house alone with her three children at 3 pm and even if she did, she should not have chosen to travel on the motorway.
Following this statement, he is being subjected to severe criticism from all quarters.
Actress Ayesha Omar also wrote in a tweet that “What happens when a woman has to leave home at night in an emergency. What happens when her family needs emergency medical help?”
And what if a woman needs to go out at night for an emergency. What if she or someone in her family needed medical help? I can walk on the streets at 1 am in other parts of the world and feel completely safe but just not in my own country, even inside a car. #motorwayincident
