Maliha Husain, execu­tive director, Mehergarh -- a Center for Learning, has said sexual harass­ment is ruining society as cancer. “Hence, we all from, parents to teach­ers, are duty-bound to play a proactive role for rooting out the evil in an effective way,” she stressed. Addressing a seminar on ‘Sexual Harassment Act 2010’ at the University of Ag­riculture Faisalabad (UAF), she said sexual harassment was com­mon phenomena, but unfortunately, it was not discussed in our society. “Although the Sexual Harassment Act 2010 safeguards lives of people from the societal evil, yet there is a dire need to provide aware­ness about it at the pub­lic level,” she said.

“The discussion on sexual harassment in families is considered as a taboo. We should hold conversation in this regard to cre­ate awareness so that we can get rid of the menace,” she added. Maliha Husain said that in our society not only women but also men fell victim to sex­ual violence. In today’s age, friendships start through internet and its videos, sometimes, lead to crimes.
