Women expose Lahore’s ‘Hafeez Centre’ for being the ‘hub’ of sexual harassers
Any woman who has been to that place would know that the men who work there harass and ogle every female passerby.
Hafeez Centre is a famous electronics plaza in Lahore where people go for all their tech-related needs. However, the environment of the place is extremely repulsive.
Any woman who has ever been to that place would know that the men who work there harass every female passerby.
Hafeez Center a Den of Sexual Harasser
A social media user shared her experience of vising the Hafeez center. She said, “I am a 30-year-old woman and know how to deal with pervert men, but even I cannot go to the Hafeez Centre on my own without a male escort.
“Moreover, literally every woman I know who has been to the Hafeez Centre has the same views. Last month I broke the screen of my phone, I knew about the Hafeez Centre, but I did not want to go there.”
She added, “I convinced a male friend to accompany me so that I could avoid the situation I have dealt with before. We went there together, but even with a man, I could not save myself from gazes of the perverts who act as if they have never seen a woman in public before.”
“Luckily, I was not catcalled that day because I was with a male friend. However, every time I went there alone, I had to deal with sexual harassers who make women feel uncomfortable as if it is their right to do so,” she added.
Many women have experienced the same attitude from the shopkeepers and workers there.
Hafeez Centre is by far the worst place for women in Lahore

To be honest, it’s one difficult place to go to, if you have any tech issue-It seems as if a woman can’t step foot in that area-

Truly. I can't even count the number of times I have been groped, cat called and harassed there. It came to a point that I would ask my brother or father to get me what I needed without telling them why I wouldn't go along. https://t.co/RJ7p8Oa42q

So true… I went there once with my brother and it felt like another planet.

I once visited Hafeez Centre. It was a terrible experience. I will never ever visit that place again.
