Sharing a video of his statement on her Instagram, Esra Bilgiç lashed out at Umer Sheikh for victim blaming. 

“Women can drive alone or with their children,” Esra Bilgiç wrote. She added that the ”only thing you need to do is provide security.”

“You’re okay with gangs’ presence on your roads as a POLICE OFFICER? You think that if a woman chooses those roads to drive, there is a right to RAPE and KILL them?,” Esra questioned. 




“You’re displaying a shocking ignorance on this matter,” she added. Esra Bilgiç further stated that before advising, CCPO Lahore should change his views but it seems impossible. “What a shame on you and people like you,” she concluded.
