Feroze Khan is one Pakistani actor who prefers staying behind the scenes, doesn’t get involved in controversies and likes to remain a little out of the limelight. But he has always gone above and beyond when it comes to supporting causes and the right thing. And now, he has gone one step ahead to protect the women of Pakistan from the rising abuse and harassment they have been facing as of late.
Just recently, a young girl was stalked, harassed and threatened by a boy which Feroze Khan has taken note of and has set up an Instagram page which goes by the name, ‘Protect Them Now’ with the handle @protectthemnow, to help such cases. Feroze Khan was quick to take note of the case, in which a young boy named Ibsham Zahid had been verbally abusing and threatening the girl Fatima and her family. These included rape and death threats. He then set up the page, previously naming it ‘Protect Her Now’.
It appears that Feroze Khan’s efforts have been fruitful as a recent post on the page shared that Zahid has been put behind bars. “To where Ibsham belongs… Behind the bars!” reads the post. The post also paid gratitude to Fatima for her courage. “Massive respect for the girls like Fatima who fearlessly are ready to fight their battles.” Feroze Khan’s initiative has been met with a positive response and has been lauded by fans and followers who are all praise for the actor. This is the correct step for seeking justice for young girls and women.

According to one user’s description of the step: “If any child or woman is getting any kind of threats, message him there, he will take immediate action! Feroze Khan, you’re a gem!” Other fans and netizens took to Twitter to laud his efforts. Here’s what some of them had to say:
