Popular Pakistani singer Atif Aslam is known and loved for his melodious songs like Tajdaar-E-Haram, Tere Bin, etc. Having had people utterly mesmerised with his numbers at numerous live performances, this time the singer gave another reason for his fans to love him even more. After noticing some men harassing a girl in the audience, Aslam stopped the performance mid-way to give them a piece of his mind. “Have you never seen a girl before?” he had asked, before asking the organisers to help the girl.

The incident that took place at a concert in Karachi, saw the crowd applauding the singer for taking a stand for women’s safety.

    Indian media go to stan for a singer and paste the pages in praise of the singer in India? Are they trying to promote s? Was it a preplanned stunt? Why was the girl 'rescued' an the 'molesters' allowed to enjoy themselves? Why didn't security throw the 'molesters' out?

          It's funny and so pathetic that some people can't look beyond the fact that Atif is a stani. Isn't he a human first? Can't people appreciate his effort to protect a girl who was being hared? How would you feel if your daughter or sister got hared and stani stood by and watched because she was an Indian? There are good people in stan just like anywhere else in the world.
