An old interview of actor Mawra Hocane has went viral on social video, in which she can be heard saying that harassment and cat calling on the streets and markets of Lahore is ‘fun’.

In an interview that was telecasted on ARY Digital in August 2018, the program host Nida Yasir asked the actor as if any boy has cat-called her in Lahore during her Eid Shopping, to which she replied: “I think it’s the fun of Lahore that boys are cat-calling girls and listening to music in high volume in their cars. I think these are Lahori feels so we don’t mind. Keep looking at us.”

The host then questioned, “Would you mind if someone cat-called you now?” In response, Mawra said: “No, I wouldn’t mind.”

Social media users and women’s rights activists are condemning the remarks of the actor and calling her out for ‘normalising’ cat-calling that is already prevalent in the public spaces of Pakistan.
