‘Not Everyone Can Afford A Car’ – Zahid Ahmed On Normalizing Women Riding Bikes

In Pakistan, women don’t get equal respect on every platform. Whether it’s the entertainment industry or corporate.

Women always suffered when it comes to equality, even if they drive people to see them as a criminal and behave that they don’t know how to drive.

Just take the example of the bike. In foreign countries, women ride a bike and people do appreciate that too. But in Pakistan women riding bikes looks like crime or the worst thing to do.

Our society is so conservative, that it kills the passion of so many girls out there who want to become bike riders.

Till now very few women build the guts to ride bikes in Pakistan and that happened because of their family support. Still, Pakistani Awaam won’t normalize women riding bikes on so many levels, that you can’t even compete.

On that matter, the Pakistani TV industry’s finest actor Zahid Ahmed came forward and shared some remarks on women’s bike riding.
