When my friends and I were walking and people recognised me. A group who was sure, not local people, but some pilgrimage from some other state. They started taunting me, like what I’m doing here, I should not go to temple but find a way to a bar. They started saying porn star ke saath movie, Afridi se chahti hai. I literally can’t tell what all they said. But I ignored and kept going for my prayers. But soon they tried coming close, pushed and then when I replied, they said sorry. But I choose to walk back instead of getting to temple. I was scared and really uncomfortable. Any girl would be.”
