Peaceful protests are being held all over the country by strong women belonging to all walks of life over the recent motorway gang-rape incident. The incident has rekindled the movement for equal rights for women and has added fuel to an otherwise diminishing fire as people all over Pakistan are angry and frustrated at the acts of injustices happening on a daily basis in the country.

Normal people and celebrities have all joined hands and come as one during these trying and testing times. From Sanam Saeed, Ayesha Omar to Mahira Khan, every strong-willed celebrity is using their platform to raise voice against the many injustices faced by Pakistani women.

Mahira Khan on Monday attended a protest demonstration for the same purpose and stood in solidarity with all Pakistani women.

Mahira could not contain her anger and frustration, just like every other woman in the country, as she joined in on the protest demonstration and raise her voice against sexual harassment and crime against women. 

Mahira Khan blamed the mindset of Pakistani men for the many issues faced by women and recent acts of injustices support her statement.

Later on, the Humsafar actress took to her Instagram and posted a powerful caption with a picture of her and many other women at the protest earlier in the day. 

Mahira said: 

"We demand a secure nation for all women!! At home, on the streets, at work, alone, not alone, with kids, without kids, in a skirt or in a burkha. Where ever she may be, whoever she may be - we demand basic rights of safety."

She added that she was extremely proud of the Pakistan entertainment industry for taking a unilateral stance on this issue.

"Proud of my industry for coming together for this cause - United we are stronger, our voices are more powerful and impactful."

Mahira Khan has also teamed up with The Commonwealth to raise voice against violence against women and girls in our societies, posting a video on her Instagram for their #CommonwealthsaysNOMORE campaign.

"We must act now. The problem is deep-rooted. It’s the mindset that needs to be tackled. Shame on those who commit the crime. Shame on us, who remain silent. Our curriculums need to be changed. Our narratives in our dramas/films need to revisited. We need to be mindful of what we teach our children and what we put out. Join the conversation."

"Violence against women and girls ( in a lot of cases men and boys) is a hidden pandemic which destroys lives, communities, and economies around the world. The heinous rape that happened on the motorway is a clear indication of this."

The heinous rape that happened on the motorway is a clear indication of this. As a response to this global crisis, @commonwealth_sec and @nomoreorg have launched the #CommonwealthSaysNOMORE digital portal on 9 September, which will provide the 54 Commonwealth member countries with tools and resources to help end domestic and sexual violence against women and girls. My name is Mahira Khan and today I say NO MORE. No more Shame, no more Excuses and no more Blame. ???????? ???????? @commonwealth_sec and @nomoreorg #Nomore #Nomoreshame #nomoreexcuses #nomoreblame
