Usman Gohar Bank Manager of Faysal Bank in F-10 Islamabad harassing female employee, caught red handed while someone is recording video. Is someone going to take an action or not?
Recently, Faysal Bank caught the ire of the general public when it had been discovered that management within the bank allegedly mandated that each one female staff had to wear abayas. This was apparently being wiped out a bid to form the bank appear more in line with ‘Islamic’ values. While the female employees were asked to cover up, things for the male employees remained a similar.
Allhamdollilah, Faysal Islami presented Approval Letters to its first qualifying customers and is playing its role as the catalyst for turning house ownership dreams into a reality.

Now a video of an alleged Faysal bank manager from a branch in Islamabad’s F-10 is circulating the web , where he has harassed a female employee.
The video is incredibly triggering and shows the manager of the bank groping a female employee who is standing next to his desk. It seems that video is recorded privately by another employee who already know this bad man. Fair warning, the video is triggering. Therefore, we are adding a link to an equivalent here.
People are disgusted at the video and are posing for authorities to require action and obtain the manager arrested and punished for his crime.

It must be remembered that when women are harassed, they can’t be reactionary, because it might land them in worse trouble. And in cases like these, where it’s your alleged boss who is harassing you, you’re in a good worse position due to the facility dynamic involved. Raising your voice and reacting could lead on you to urge in trouble and potentially even lose your job.
The video went viral on social media and other people started tagging the Deputy Commissioner for Islamabad Hamza Shafqaat, who replied and said that Islamabad police would arrest the person immediately.
The prompt action promised by Hamza Shafqaat is great. However, it does raise the question: why anyone need to record their ordeal of sexual harassment then have it go viral for authorities to require action? it’s incredibly disturbing that violence against women is so rampant within the country, but only cases that manage to go viral on social media are those taken seriously.
The recent previous case of Arzoo Raja, a young girl christian national who has been allegedly kidnapped and forcibly converted to Islam only gained momentum when people started posting about it on social media. However, the problem of forced conversions has been rampant within the country against young Hindu and Christian girls.
Arzoo’s family was lucky enough to post about their situation on social media but there are potentially such a lot of other young minority girls whose families don’t have the tech literacy to even know that this is often an option.
Perhaps, authorities got to take an extended hard check out their functioning and determine why things is such. It shouldn’t take a trending hashtag to provide value to the violence women face.
