Many women in Pakistan, have been liberated by the internet! Be it voicing out their concerns for the conveyance from their college to home, or how a new mother is worried about losing weight post delivery. It has also liberated women in voicing the things which were never talked before in the history of the world. Like, when the #MeToo movement started, women from all over the world started giving a shoulder to all the other women who have faced similar situations.
It was a collective thing, and when people started talking about it, it was only then, the victim’s felt less burdened. Only then, they got to know that they were not alone all this time.
But the internet also never let anyone misuse the power of it!
DPO Pakpattan Maria Mehmood got angry over an eighty-year-old man! The old man tried treating the DPO as her daughter, but Maria Mehmood misunderstood it.
So…. she basically got the 80-year-old arrested

This happened during the Municipal committee’s open court session in Tehsil Arif Wala, where Maria was present! The old man is the Central President of Traders Association Sufi Abdul Rasheed who criticized the role of local Police in front of the DPO Pakpattan.
Maria ensured the old man to fulfill her duty in whatever ways she can, as a reply to him. But then things turned shady when the old man tried to bless the DPO.
Maria Mehmood did not like the gesture too much and retaliated in a very disaffecting manner.
The local police then summoned the old man to their station, but instead of an apology, they played a funny little trick on him where he ended up behind bars, wow.
When the news spread, many people gathered at Lari Adda Chawk, to voice against this action that the police took. Many traders and local people were standing in defense of the old man.
The friends and family were chanting to take the president of traders association out of custody, in favor of Sufi Abdul Rasheed.
Later on the same day, upon multiple requests of people, the police let Sufi Abdul Rasheed go.
This is not a very twisted case, as people have made a big fuss out of it. The man wanted to show respect, just how a fatherly figure would do.
