Now some girl would say "yes all men" out of frustration and the same men would come to bash her.
Shook to the core. Is this the country where women have "all the rights"? Where no azadi march is needed? https://t.co/rHCFQN6hoR

An FIR has been registered against 400 men for harassing and looting the women. In the FIR, the girl stated that she and her friends were making videos when around 300-400 men attacked her.
She added that her friends tried to help her out but the crowd was too big. Moreover, the TikToker also said the security guard opened the gate to the enclosure around Minar-e-Pakistan in an effort to get her away from the crowd.
“However, the crowd was huge and people were scaling the enclosure and coming towards us. People were pushing and pulling me to the extent that they tore my clothes. Several people tried to help me but the crowd was too huge and they kept throwing me in the air,” she said.
