A woman has been the victim of public outrage for wearing clothes with Pakistani Arabic letters on them. At that time, the police rescued the woman.

The incident took place in Lahore’s crowded Ichra Bazaar on Sunday (February 25).

Locals complain that the woman has insulted religion by wearing such clothes. That’s why they attacked him. The woman went to Lahore’s Ichra Bazaar wearing a dress with Arabic letters on it.

The garment has the word ‘Halwa’ printed in Arabic letters, meaning sweet. Lahore police told the BBC they first received a telephone call at 1:10 a.m. local time on Sunday. At that time, the police were informed by telephone that there was tension around a woman in a restaurant in Lahore, the capital of Punjab province.

Assistant Superintendent of Lahore Police Syeda Shehrbano said, from the video spread on social media, it can be seen that about 300 people gathered outside the restaurant. At this time, the woman sat in a corner and covered her face with her hand.

This female police officer said, ‘None of the excited crowd knows what is written on the clothes. But the main task for us was to bring that woman out safely.

Shehrbano said supporters of the radical Islamist political party Tehreek-e-Labaik Pakistan (TLP) were among the crowd. Later the woman was taken to the police station. There, the police brought some scholars to the police station and confirmed the writing in Arabic letters printed on the girl’s dress. Scholars confirmed that there were no Quranic verses written on the girl’s clothes.

In this regard, the woman said, I had no such intention, it happened accidentally. Still I apologize for what happened. I am a devout Muslim and will never insult religion.
