Watch: Aurat March organizers request for protection as attackers tear posters, destroy murals

With online bullying, abusing, rape threats and intimidation, a group of goons was seen destroying murals and posters in Islamabad

Aurat March is just around the corner and the outrage continues. The organizers and the participants, fearing threat of violence, have asked the government to provide them with protection.

With online bullying, abusing, rape threats and intimidation, a group of goons was seen destroying murals and posters in Islamabad. Taking to Twitter, organizer of Aurat March and member of Awami Workers Party (AWP) Tooba Syed called out DC Islamabad Muhammad Hamza Shafqaat, saying that the violence was perpetrated in the presence of police.

The goons showed up with police to destroy our mural and they did in the presence of police. Calling it fahashi This mural was the labour of love of so many. Are you watching this DC Islamabad? How will we get it back? It was days of labour of women!!!”, Tooba wrote. 

Aurat March is a public rally which is organized in different cities of Pakistan every year on the 8th of March to celebrate International Women’s Day. However, ever since it became a yearly event, it has been blamed for being ‘indecent’ and ‘anti-Islamic’.

So far, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has extended full support to the Aurat March, saying it is their democratic right. Pakistan Bar Council (PBC) also condemned the threats the organizers are receiving, saying that ‘gathering of women at public places is a reflection of democracy’.
