To address the issue, the Islamabad Police is offering a comprehensive self-defense course for females. It includes physical training and armed training, and an assault course to make females completely capable of defending themselves in threatening situations.

The duration of the course is 4 October to 4 November, and costs Rs. 30,000. The classes will be three days a week from 4 PM to 7 PM. The registration is currently open via an online application form.

A source from the Islamabad Police told ProPakistani that the training will mostly be given by female instructors, and male instructors are likely to be involved wherever needed.

Sexual harassment is alarmingly frequent these days and is a matter of great concern for society. The new self-defense course for women is a commendable step by the Islamabad Police to offer the women of the twin cities an opportunity to develop the ability to defend themselves and to initiate a culture of resilience among the entire female community of Pakistan.
