ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s award-winning cyclist Samar Khan said that she was harassed while cycling in the federal capital.

Sitting on her bicycle, Khan, 26, filmed herself in the middle of the road after the incident and said, “cycling is not safe for women in Pakistan”.

Giving the details of the incident, Samar Khan said while she was cycling in Islamabad, a man who was on a bike “groped her, touched her inappropriately and sped away”.

She said she attempted to give him a chase but couldn’t as she was on a bicycle. Giving description of the harasser, she said he was in a maroon shirt. He was possibly coming from work as he was carrying a bag, she said.

She pointed out she doesn’t blame anyone, neither men nor the government for whatever happened to her. However, she went on to question her followers as to how they can ignore such incidents while witnessing them happen to a woman in public.

“At the time I was being harassed there were other people around driving by but they chose to ignore and move past, and not react,” she said.

Samar Khan became the first woman to cycle 800 kilometres to reach the Biafo Glacier in northern Pakistan in August 2016. She cycled to an elevation of 4,500m on top of the glacier.

After the achievement, she was quoted by GlacierHub as saying, “In order to change the mindsets of our people, I chose to cycle on glaciers.” “I wanted people to realise the importance of what we have, how to preserve it, and what our duties are toward these majestic landmarks.”

Police contacts Samar Khan
A spokesperson of the Islamabad Police said on Friday that the SHO and SP of the police station, who jurisdiction the incident happened, have contacted the cyclist. He also added that the police was investigating the incident with the help of the CCTV footage.

That is bad but i also question the motive behind bringing women to the road, why? There is a balance in our society and the liberals are hell bent on destroying that and it will have grave consequences.

so,the women should not have freedom to come on to the road?Why don't women in the west who do all kinds of cyclings,hikings even at nights in the remotest of countrysides face these things?This thinking that women should be confined to four walls is the reason our south asia has such a horrific record of abuse against women...they are human beings and they have as much right to enjoy all the freedoms that a man does..in this era of social media and internet the more you try to suppress them ,the more they will rebel..

Firstly about cycling, I have read that continuous cycling is bad for health for men and in women it turns them into "fit" sexually-unappealing beings.

Sorry to say, your wordings of "harm in bringing women to road" and "balance in society" and "liberals"... it smacks of toxic patriarchy.

Below is a poster I found some days ago in image search for "Islamabad Aurat March". The result image was displayed under the words "Aurat March vulgar posters". I wondered what was so vulgar about it :

I am not against women working or going outside but doing a campaign to "bring women on roads" seems to be liberal's agenda. Go live in the west and ull know wat happens to girls there as well. We have our norms and values, wr allow women to work and go out but with our norms and values, we dont need liberals campaigning to tell us how to allow women out.

U clearly didnt see the vulgar ones. We dont need anyone telling us how to let our women out. I understand u living in a hindu society may have adopted many things and changed but we valie our traditions. We allow women to work, to get education, to go out but all in our way and not how loser liberals want us to. We know very well the culture they want to impose on us, heck even the western men now hate feminists and these libtards.
