Today, simple ordinary people have organized them selves, wore a uniform, spread through the streets of downtown trying to prevent teenagers and perverts from sexually harassing girls on the streets.
sexual harassment is becoming a major problem in egypt .. the latest recorded incident was the one occurred to the 24 France female correspondent who was harassed while broadcasting life from Tahrir Square.. a journalist told the story of this on the Time magazine two days ago (the vicious circles of the square).
This looks like a good move .. however evil always follow the innocent good intentions .. the victims of such groups were beaten violently, photographed, picture of their clear faces along with their names and areas they live in were published and spread widely on the social media, and only a few of them were taken to police stations, not to mention that most of them were poor ignorant teenagers
I know that sexual harassment is wrong .. but this is worse .. encouraging people to take matters into their hands is the fastest way into tearing any society apart.
if they now interfere to prevent sexual harassment, tomorrow what will prevent them from chasing couples on the streets asking if they were married or not, what will prevent them from forcibly closing liquor stores, hotels or pubs under the claim of protecting the society from all evil.
it's now a group of liberals who decided to force their moral code on the streets, but this will encourage the Islamists to do the same as well .. and of course this will weaken our police forces even more.
if these are not militias then what are they called !? i fear that this might lead to a worse descent in our already fallen state.
I think that sexual harassment has to be addressed in a different way other than this .. what do u think?
