A woman in Karachi faces refusal of a bike license because of her gender
A woman was not only given a blunt refusal but also harshly told off, the reason being, women were not “allowed” those licenses.
She approached a government office in Karachi to procure a car/bike license, which was a cost-effective transport option for her.
According to her, all was going well while the man behind the counter entered her details into the system. When she reminded him that she also needed a motorbike license, the man “lost it” and became angry.
The post continued, “He told me and I quote “Aap nikal jaye yahan se. Bike ka license nahi dete hum larkiyo ko. Aap aurat he aap gaari chalaye”. I asked him the reason for this absurd rule but obviously he gave me no response other than continuously telling me to get out.”
