Girls Going Wheels

Pakistani girls are finally going wheels to support another of their own type! Unlike other countries of the world, Pakistan still does not allow girls to ride bikes on the roads. The biggest reason for this disallowance is the roadside harassment, which Pakistani women will face. Pakistani women face tremendous harassment scenarios everyday traveling by public transport, on foot or even private vehicles. It is the time that sick public should be made used to watching girls riding bikes and bicycles. In order to take the initial step, women were invited to take part in the bicycle rally in Karachi on Sunday.

This rally was specifically organized to stand in solidarity with Aneeqa Ali, a girl from Lahore, who was hit and injured by a bunch of cowards while she was riding a bike. To stand with her, and all the other women of Pakistan, who want to ride bikes and bicycles to make their lives easier, Noor Rehman came up with the idea of organizing this rally.

Women in Pakistan are dependent on men for their transportation. This is something that often makes women helpless and less confident. Though guys can always accompany women to be protective but women should also be riding their own vehicles to make their study and job transportation easier. This rally actually encouraged girls to come out on the roads and ride bikes or bicycles. When more people would be used to watching girls like this, they would appreciate it for the sake of positive development.
