Singer Atif Aslam was compelled to stop a live performance midway late on Saturday when he spotted a girl being eve-teased. He then ensured that the girl was extricated from the spot and admonished those who indulge in the heinous practice.

Pakistani | 6 years ago | Reply This savage and barabaric treatment of women has to stop The culprits need to be arrested, jailed, and then put on a sex offenders register witha GPS tracking device of 3 years. When will our Governments, Police, Courts and community leaders take a firm stand against these assaults against women!!
