Feroze Khan sets up new 'Protect Them Now' initiative to help women

Entertainment Desk September 17, 2020

Feroze Khan has gone one step ahead to protect women in light of rising abuse and harassment cases targeting them. 

The Khaani actor, after taking note of a young girl's plight who was harassed, stalked, and threatened by a boy, has set up an Instagram page titled 'Protect Them Now' with the handle @protectthemnow, to help such cases. Khan took immediate notice of the case, in which a young boy named Ibsham Zahid had been verbally abusing and threatening the girl Fatima and her family. These included rape and death threats. He then set up the page, previously naming it 'Protect Her Now'.

In a new development, it seems that Khan's efforts have borne fruit. A recent post on the page shared that Zahid has been put behind bars. "To where Ibsham belongs... Behind the bars!" reads the post. The post also paid gratitude to Fatima for her courage. "Massive respect for the girls like Fatima who fearlessly are ready to fight their battles."

According to one user's description of the step: "If any child or woman is getting any kind of threats, message him there, he will take immediate action! Feroze Khan, you're a gem!" 

After the news of Zahid being taken to jail was made public on the account, Twitterati erupted in gratitude and praise for the Ishqiya star and also the power of social media. "Massive respect for Feroze Khan for doing this and raising his voice for Fatima," wrote one user.
