Sending unwanted ‘good morning’ messages and stalking on social media is also harassment, Kashmala

Federal Ombudsperson for Protection against Harassment of Women at Workplace Kashmala Tariq has recently said that sending unnecessary, unwelcoming, and unwanted “good morning” and “best wishes” messages to women is also harassment.

She passed these remarks while delivering a speech in a ceremony on women’s day celebration at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RCCI) in Rawalpindi.

Kashmala said that “I have received complaints in which peons have also harassed women at offices.” She stressed that people should not use their position of power to exploit women. “If someone constantly asks you out for tea, it is also a kind of harassment,” she added further.

To further clarify her said statements, Federal Ombudsperson took to Twitter and stated that stalking on social media and unwanted messages tantamount to harassment. She urged that the media must not interpret her example out of the context by exaggerating the words.
