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.
