Actor Humaima Malik has said she was harassed during her recent stay at a hotel in Lahore.
The actor took to Twitter and shared text messages she received from a man who slipped his business card under her room door.
“You cannot cry in your room otherwise people might drop business cards,” she said.
Evidence of the harassment I had to endure at Nishat Hotel. Be aware if you lose a loved one and someone dies in your family while staying at Nishat – you cannot cry in your room otherwise people might drop business cards pic.twitter.com/tF5R0iynJW

In the text messages shared by Humaima from an unknown sender, the man asks the actor if she received the business cards.
In another tweet, the actor wrote, “I am sharing my experience because I think it’s high time when I should come forward and share my experience against harassment and how an educated class also chose to ignore it and take such important issues lightly.”
The actor in a note attached with her tweet continued, “I can’t emphasise this enough as the numbers or times actresses, models, singers or performers are subjected to harassment.”
“I can’t even keep count of times business cards of men that I do not know have been slipped under the door of my room at various well known and supposedly safe hotels,” she added.
“Just because a woman is from entertainment business does not mean that she wants business cards slipped under her door.”
Humaima also accused the hotel of breaching her privacy and sharing her information with strangers.
