Only a few days before the Aurat March, an intense mob vandalized the two women’s mural painted on a house’s walls in Islamabad.
According to one of the Aurat March organizers, Tooba Syed, the extremists prevented them from painting the mural in the police’s presence. She took to Twitter and said they had been harassed by the clerics, claiming the image was ‘fahashi’ (obscene).
She added that the Aurat March organizers had asked the house owners for permission to paint the mural.
Sharing a before and an after photo, Syed said the Lal Masjid clerics sprayed the mural black while the Abpara police were present.
