Karachi Eat Festival 2017 created much buzz because of two reasons. Firstly, rain poured down as disaster for organizers and food vendors. Many faces huge loss because the event was not planned according to the ongoing weather condition in Karachi. Secondly, it was strictly declared a no entrance area for stags, even if they were brothers or son and a father. This hurt the ego of many and created much debate over social media.

Heard guys complaining that they couldnt go to #KarachiEat2017 without a family. Thats exactly how women feel when restricted! Ha!

Rather than crying over why men wo/family aren't allowed in #KarachiEat2017 accept the public behavior which is uncomfortable to women.

But then, it started raining in Karachi, and Friday 13th proved why it is being considered as the unluckiest day of the year by many.
It indeed has been "Friday the 13th" for #KarachiEat2017 and the people who attended

Some actually called it a curse or Karma because the organizer prohibited entry for stags.

Just last night, Atif Aslam and Abida Parveen performed live at Moin Khan Academy in Karachi. There were multiple reports of boys misbehaving with girls, specifically, in front rows. When Atif Aslam came to perform, he noticed some boys harassing girls. The gentleman stopped his performance to warn a guy. ‘Insaan Ka Bacha Ban,’ he told to the guy.
Sending huge respect to Atif Aslam who stopped in the middle of his performance last night in Karachi and scolded guys who were harassing girls in the front row. 'Insaan Ka Bacha Ban,' he said. #AtifAslam #Karachi #Concert #Respect #Aadeez #khiEat #KarachiEatFestival #KarachiEatFestival2017 #BehtareenPK
Later, the rock star pulled a girl on stage and provided her the easy way out from crowd.
We send huge respect to the gentle man for what he did last night and hope that people, specifically guys in this situation, realize that sometimes, you have to respect someone’s decision and accept the ugly truth about your society.
