The Alleged ‘Molester’ At The Atif Aslam Concert Reveals This Shocking Truth

When I came across the statement of the ‘alleged’ molester at the Atif Aslam concert, I was taken aback.
His revelation made me realize that sometimes, we jump to conclusions, too soon.
For all the people who don’t know about the incident, Atif Aslam recently stopped the concert midway when he saw a woman being manhandled by a guy in the crowd and rescued her.
However, Daily Pakistan has now reported that the alleged ‘molester’ is, in fact, a student. He was a volunteer and was in charge of the security at the concert.
He also explained why he couldn’t come out and clarify sooner.
“I was prohibited from doing so as it would have given public, crucial information before the investigation had ceased.”
Here’s what he stated to Daily Pakistan:
“My job was to ensure that nobody crosses over from the non-VIP section to the VIP section without a valid ticket.
I saw two girls accompanied by a guy crossing over from the non-VIP section and forcing their way to the front row, like a lot of other people were also doing. There was a lot of rush in the front of the stage and these people were continuing to push through. I confronted these people and politely asked them to either show their VIP pass or go back to their own section, which they refused.
That is when these girls started getting violent. They started scratching at my neck and face with their long nails, they slapped me on the face, punched me and incited a whole mob against me.
It was exactly at this point when these girls were scratching at my face violently, and the boy who accompanied them was punching my face and kicking me, Atif Aslam saw us.”
“Instead of trying to understand the real story, Atif Aslam blamed me, the actual victim. Nobody listens to men in our society especially when a woman has said anything against him – it doesn’t matter true or false. When Atif Aslam said ‘rescue these girls,’ everyone thought I was molesting them and a huge mob started beating me up for no reason. I have never been beaten so badly in my entire life, and that too for just doing my job.”
Those girls were not the victims, they were vicious, violent and rude. Because of them, I have scars on my face and neck that will stay with me forever. I was traumatized, and everyone has refused to listen to me or understand my side of the story.”
I believe that people should not be punished or let off based on their gender.
Being a feminist, I believe in equal rights, and so I hope that the justice is done in this incident.
