Pakistani men trying to pick up women using their cell phones

13:32 Jul 18 2013 Islamabad, Pakistan

Description
Pakistani men use text messages to attrack girls, even if they have never met them. Most of them send cliched messages, even poems, to woo girls and "make friendship". For young women, what some consider a "national phenomena" has become an annoyance, a headache, that even worries their families. The texts might lead families to take their daughters out of school. Parents might assume the texts meant the girls were involved with unknown men.

Usama Khilji of Bholo Bhi, an organization that promotes internet freedom and privacy, says that shopkeepers who sell SIM cards and top-up prepaid phones share women’s numbers for some extra cash or even just for fun.
