With over 100 million users of smartphones in Pakistan, Pakistan has been included in the list of the fastest-growing countries that are using the internet which only opens the doors for the fact that cyberbullying is increasing as well, yet there isn’t any legislation for cybercrimes in Pakistan. However, if you know someone being bullied online or are a victim yourself, here’s what you need to do.
1. Register a complaint through FIA
Simply write down your application (in English or in Urdu), narrate your complete problem, provide as much evidences, details as you can and send it to FIA National Response Center for Cyber Crimes(NR3C).
2. Lodge a report via IC3
The IC3 accepts online Internet crime complaints from either the actual victim or from a third party to the complainant. Check out their website to see how to report.
3. CPLC to the rescue!
The Citizens-Police Liaison Committee (CPLC) has set up a women complaint cell aimed at dealing with women harassment issues across the country. Complaints can be made on these numbers: 021-35662222, 021-35682222.
4. Snapshot on Snapchat
If your account is being misused or hacked, you can submit a report by filling in the harassment form available on the official website. It’s that simple!
5. Madadgaar National Helpline
From psychological counseling to legal aid, this is the organization you should look up to for help. The cherry on top, it’s cost-effective too!
6. Fake Instagram account? No more tears.
Instagram’s ‘abuse form’ actually works. Even if you don’t have an official account, you can still fill out the form. Cheers!
