SEXUAL HARASSMENT RUINING SOCIETY: MALIHA HUSAIN

Maliha Husain, execu­tive director of Mehergarh — a Center for Learning, has said sexual harass­ment is ruining society as cancer. “Hence, we all, from parents to teach­ers, are duty-bound to play a proactive role in rooting out the evil effectively,” she stressed. Addressing a seminar on the ‘Sexual Harassment Act 2010’ at the University of Ag­riculture Faisalabad (UAF), she said sexual harassment was a common phenomenon. Still, unfortunately, it was not discussed in our society. “Although the Sexual Harassment Act 2010 safeguards people’s lives from societal evil, there is a dire need to provide awareness about it at the pub­lic level,” she said.

“The discussion on sexual harassment in families is considered taboo. We should hold a conversation in this regard to create awareness to eliminate the menace,” she added. Maliha Husain said that women and men fall victim to sex­ual violence in our society. In today’s age, friendships start through the internet and its videos, sometimes leading to crimes.
