A few days ago, all of us appreciated Atif Aslam for rescuing a girl from being molested at his concert. But sometimes, what we see can be wrong. And I guess the same thing happened in that concert.
According to the guy, he was not harassing the girl. He was actually in charge of security and was trying to stop people from coming into the VIP zone which came out in a completely wrong manner.
Here is what he told Daily Pakistan:
“My job was to ensure that nobody crosses over from the non-VIP section to the VIP section without a valid ticket.
I saw two girls accompanied by a guy crossing over from the non-VIP section and forcing their way to the front row, like a lot of other people were also doing. There was a lot of rush in the front of the stage and these people were continuing to push through. I confronted these people and politely asked them to either show their VIP pass or go back to their own section, which they refused.
That is when these girls started getting violent. They started scratching at my neck and face with their long nails, they slapped me on the face, punched me and incited a whole mob against me.
It was exactly at this point when these girls were scratching at my face violently and the boy who accompanied them was punching my face and kicking me, Atif Aslam saw us.”
“Instead of trying to understand the real story, Atif Aslam blamed me, the actual victim. Nobody listens to men in our society especially when a woman has said anything against him – it doesn’t matter true or false. When Atif Aslam said ‘rescue these girls,’ everyone thought I was molesting them and a huge mob started beating me up for no reason. I have never been beaten so badly in my entire life, and that too for just doing my job.”
Those girls were not the victims, they were vicious, violent and rude. Because of them, I have scars on my face and neck that will stay with me forever. I was traumatized and everyone has refused to listen to me or understand my side of the story.”
We all misjudge according to the circumstances and another person becomes the victim. This is really sad. We hope the guy will get the justice.
