Mawra Hocane Thinks It’s Okay For Men To Stare At Women
Mawra is known for paying no heed to general common sense and public sentiments. She is famous for her senseless remarks and completely baseless opinions on sensitive topics. This time again, an old video has surfaced, which clearly shows that the little Ms. Hocane has no idea what the actual world is like and how important it is for her to think and speak sensibly.
What Did Mawra Do This Time?
An old video of Mawra Hocane promoting Jawaani Phir Nahi Aani 2 with Humayun Saeed and Kubra Khan in an Eid morning show by Nida Yasir has surfaced on the internet. The video started floating yesterday and now has gone viral within no time. The snippet of the morning show shows Hocane glorifying street harassment and saying that it is a right of the Lahori boys who are known for publicly catcalling and abusing women.
Hocane’s Conversation With Nida Yasir
Yasir asks Hocane about the Lahori boys and questioned:
“Has anyone ever teased you?”
To the question, she responds as:
“I think that’s just Lahore’s fun, boys tease you with music roaring from their cars. I think that’s just the feel of Lahori Eid.”
She also further normalized the harassment by saying:
“So, we don’t mind. It’s okay, keep looking at us”.
The surprised host on the answer asks her once again:
“So even if someone teases you right now you won’t mind?”
To this, Hocane unflinchingly chirped:
“Haan, koi baat nahi, tumhari bhi Eid hai (Yes, it doesn’t matter, it’s your Eid too).”
Here is the complete snippet of the conversation:

What’s more upsetting is that on her remarks, everyone including Hocane laughed. They all normalized the street harassment because probably they have never been in a situation where they were terrified of their safety due to men.
She does not mind because probably she is also in her car with tinted windows and never had to face reality. She does not mind but people do mind, and that is why this old video has stirred controversy and reaction out of public once again.
Social Media Reacts To Her Remarks
As soon as the video resurfaced once again, the internet lost it on Hocane. People have explicitly expressed their anger on Mawra Hocane taking a national platform to glorify harassment and telling it is the ‘right of Lahori men’. Here is how some of the Twitteratis reacted:
