Kenyan Deputy High Commissioner Complains She was Manhandled @ Lake View Park Islamabad


Islamabad; 02 Sep 2021 – Chairman Senate Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Mushahid Hussain Syed informed the meeting that the Kenyan Deputy  high commissioner told him that she was manhandled at the Lake View Park on August 14 despite being accompanied by her driver and another person.

“People pulled my hair and there was a scuffle,” he quoted the Deputy Kenyan high commissioner as saying.

He noted this at the meeting of Human Rights Committee that met to review the unfortunate incident of Minar e Pakistan Lahore on the same day in which a Tik Toker woman was harassed by dozens of youngsters and men.

Committee Chairman Waleed Iqbal responded by saying that this is a serious matter and only reviewing it cannot be enough.

“This has become a trend and foreign envoys are also falling prey to it,” said Iqbal, adding that Pakistan talks about promoting tourism but who will come here in these circumstances.

Federal Minister for Human Rights Ms Shereen Mazari suggested that single man entry into the parks should be banned and special hours can be fixed for women only.
