Karachi: Pakistani singer Atif Aslam brought his concert here to a halt to rescue a female fan, who was being harassed by some guys during the show. The incident happened on Saturday when the 33-year-old Pehli Nazar Mein hitmaker had taken to the stage to belt out his hit numbers for the crowd.
At the Karachi Eat 2017 concert on Saturday night, Aslam took some hooligans to task after rescuing a girl who was being harassed, Geo news reported.
Karachi was once a regular venue for concerts by both local and international stars. However, over the years, such events here have become few and far between.
The concert also featured veteran singer, Abida Parveen, followed by Aslam.
When Aslam took the stage after 1 a.m. the atmosphere was electrifying.
Midway into the performance, a crowd of rowdy youngsters present started harassing a girl in the front row.
Realising the incident unfolding before him, Aslam walked up to the edge of the stage and gave the youngsters a schooling.
“Haven’t you seen a girl? Atif is seen asking the gang angrily in a video posted on Youtube by concert goers. “Your mother or sister could be here as well,” he added.
“Insaan ka baccha ban (act like a human being),” Atif reprimanded them, before resuming the show.
After issuing a warning to the rowdy boys, the singer pulled up the girl on the stage and asked concert organisers to get her a place somewhere else.
The bouncers present helped the girl up on the stage and escorted her to safety.
The event came at a time when many were lamenting on social media how the organisers had declared the festival a ‘family only’ event.
The organisers, however, have not yet come out with any response on the incident.
