Celebrities have taken to social media to condemn and express concern over the horrific Faisalabad mob assault, where four women were stripped naked and beaten by a group of men who accused them of stealing. What made this heinous act even more mortifying is that onlookers filmed the ordeal instead of stepping up to help the women being tortured.

Yaisr Hussain expressed his outrage over Faisalabad incident, particularly calling out bystanders for not intervening. “They just stood watching”, he wrote while condemning people present at the scene for simply standing by and watching while men assaulted women in public..
