Perpetual diary of a girl in city bus

Published : Thursday, 7 September, 2017 at 12:00 AM Count : 406

"Perpetual diary of a girl in city bus" written by Wasifa Wali was a wonderful feature published on 31st August, 2017. After going through this feature, a picture of female sufferings in city bus came across my mind and I got to know how much hassles a girl faces in city bus.
Really the seats known as "Mohila Seats" are very congested and the seats just over the engine are harmful to women's health. Even when a female commuter insists on her rights to take the reserved seats, groups of male commuters often bombard her with harsh remarks. The reserved seats for girls should be increased and fair treatments should be given to the female commuters. The existing laws can be utilized regarding this issue. Otherwise, facing harassments in the bus will increase day by day.
