The video clip of someone pretended to be Hareem Shah shows the cricketer behaving inappropriately during a video call. Of course, it is making rounds on Twitter.
It was actually the message with the posted video that gathered a lot of attention. At first, people thought that Hareem Shah is just trolling people or pulling a prank based on the tweets.
The tweets threatened politicians of circumstances Shaheen Afridi is currently in.
People have been paralleling another case of revenge porn with Rabi Peerzada. Understanding that both cases are a violation of Pakistan’s cyber laws is necessary before going in to bash the victims.
Today is a day of learning for all.
1) Girls should never share anything indecent with boys. Never trust anyone. Today, it's #RabiPirzada,tomorrow it can be you.

One of the purposes of creating cyber laws was to prevent instances of cyberbullying and revenge porn. Yet, despite the necessary laws in place these incidents run rampant.
Awareness around cyber laws is necessary to curb such behavior. Without the necessary social attitude towards harassment online, particularly revenge porn we can’t clamp down on this crime.
