An old interview of actor Mawra Hoccane has been circulating on social media, in which she can be heard saying that harassment and whitelisting on the streets of Lahore is ‘fun.’

During an interview that was telecasted on ARY Digital in August 2018, the program host Nida Yasir asked the actress as if any boy has catcalled her in Lahore during her Eid Shopping, to which she responded, “I think it’s the fun of Lahore that boys are catcalling girls and listening music in their cars. I think that’s the feel of Lahori Eid, so we do not mind. Keep looking at us.”

In response to Nida’s question, “Would you mind if someone catcalled you now?” Mawra said, “No, I wouldn’t mind.”

Sadly, street harassment is a common phenomenon in Lahore, experienced by females irrespective of their age and dress.

Social media users are condemning the insensitive remarks of the actress and calling her out for ‘normalizing’ harassment that is already prevalent in the public spaces of Pakistan.
