We all are well-aware of how commonly women receive threats online. There are countless such cases that leave the victims and their families devastated.
Ibsham Fatima case
Recently, a video of an 18-year-old boy, named Ibsham Zahid, went viral where he was giving threats to a girl named Fatima. He was harassing her and constantly telling her that he will rape her and murder her family. This had been going on for many years now and Fatima claimed that despite registering an FIR against the boy, no action had been taken by the police.
Fatima told how the boy followed her around and had made her life a living hell. She finally spoke up for the greater good and we are glad she did. The internet was on fire over Fatima’s revelation and people demanded Ibsham be arrested. People are enraged over the audacity of the boy and the kind of threats he was giving to the girl.
After Fatima shared the screenshots and audios of Ibsham’s threatening messages, many celebrities took the case into notice as well. Among them, Feroze Khan took some responsibility and was not only loud on the issue but also decided to do something that will help women, who are manipulated by others, in the future as well.
