A Pakistani woman shared a Facebook post recently, narrating an incident where an auto driver allegedly masturbated in front of her. The post soon went viral and she received a lot of support. However, a few prople criticised her and blamed her what happened.

According to a report by Indian Express, the woman said, “The messages (she got on Facebook) were a mixed collection of support and hate. People (mostly women) were supporting and encouraging whereas mostly men were victim blaming, saying things like my explicitness is the reason why I was harassed. Some of them are even defending auto driver by saying he’s just scratching his balls lol as if I was blind and stupid to understand.”
