Actor Omair Rana Among Those Accused Of Sexual Harassment By Minor Students
Actor Omair Rana, who has often appeared in plays about social issues such as domestic violence, is among those who have been accused of sexual harassment by the female students of Lahore Grammar School (LGS) 1A1.
A twitter user posted a number of screenshots of Instagram stories wherein a female alumna of LGS accused the actor of sexual misconduct. “So many girls had issues with his behaviour. He [used to] flirt and his body language was also inappropriate,” she said adding that a number of female students complained the administration but they didn’t pay ‘any heed’ because the actor “was the very vital part of the school at that time”.
Some students had also accused the actor’s wife Maira Omair Rana, who works at the admin office of LGS, of ‘covering up’ and ‘victim blaming’. A student revealed that whenever girls complained to her, she used to do victim-blaming and scolding girls over their ‘revealing clothes’. “She even said to the victims that they should not come to her for their complaints.”
The stories shared by the students had generated outrage on social media with people demanding the administration to hold an inquiry into the matter after which all the four accused teachers were terminated by LGS 1A1.
