Esra’s Instagram Stories
Lahore CCPO, Umer Sheikh gained notorious reputation when he blamed the victim on a public platform for the heinous crime that happened. He not only absurdly questioned the victim for traveling without a male but also shamelessly had the audacity to asked why did she not take a safer route. Instead of making his city a safer place for his sisters and mothers, he seemed to be content with men gang raping women on open highways.
Among thousands of people from national and international platforms condemning his statements, Esra Bilgic is the latest one as she took to Instagram stories and expressed her thoughts on CCPO Lahore’s statements and stance.
She insisted on the fact that his job is to not comment on the victims of a terrible criminal activity, but to help make his city make a safe haven for his daughters, sisters and mothers. By no means women should be limited from their rational demands and basic rights just because an ineffective system cannot seem to punish the troublemakers.
Esra Bilgic looked bamboozled by the sheer bluntness of this insensitive man who thinks there is nothing wrong in women being raped when left alone in the city for whose security he is responsible.
Netizens welcomed her thoughts and found the fact heartwarming that world famous actresses like Esra Bilgiç are united with the public when it comes to unforgiving social issues and actually do speak up on matters of importance, instead of just another crappy sponsored post. She also highlighted the authorities’ growing unfair approach and condemned the CCPO Umer Sheikh’s behavior publicly.
Her role as Halime Sultan is not the only reason why Pakistanis love her.
