Australian YouTuber Luke Damant, who is visiting Pakistan for the second time, has lauded the Sindh Police for arresting a harasser at Clifton beach.
Pakistan has been promoting its Northern areas for international and national travelers. A significant influx of local tourists do make their way to the north. However, some international YouTubers have also made their way to Pakistan in the past year.
Luke Damant, who is on his second trip to Pakistan, had an unfortunate encounter with a local on Clifton beach. Damant, who lived close by, walked to the beach for a horse ride. He came across a teenager offering a ride for Rs. 300. The YouTuber hopped on while recording his sunset on the beach. Little did he know what was coming his way. As soon as the ride was over, the teenager who had asked for Rs. 300 suddenly began harassing Luke for Rs. 3000 in return for an ‘extended ride,’ which lasted a few minutes.
The exchange was ugly, and the language barrier made Luke seemingly uncomfortable. He asked some locals for help, who figured the teenager was overcharging the foreigner after admitting to a much lower price for the ride. Following the horse ride fiasco, Sindh police arrested the teenage boy for harassing the foreigner.
A post on a local group on Facebook read, “Alhamdulillah, Clifton Ke Sahil Per Gair Mulki Sayyah Luke Damant Ke Sath Badmashi Aur Harasa’n Karny Waly Badmash Ko Karachi Police Ki Janib Se Pakrlya Gaya Hai, Mukammal Report Kuch Dair Mai Update Ki Jayegee“.
Luke appreciated the efforts of the Karachi Police in a lengthy post. He wrote, “Thank you to Karachi Police for taking action and dealing with this situation accordingly, and most importantly keeping Pakistan safe.”
He added that the teenage boy made a mistake, as all people do. He hopes he learns to treat others with respect. He also pointed out that he has no idea how the legal process works in Pakistan but encouraged onlookers to treat him with kindness whenever they see him next.
“I do want to say something quickly. This boy is young, just like myself, and we all make mistakes… especially youngsters. I hope he learns from this experience and treats others with the respect they deserve. I don’t know how the legal process works in Pakistan or what is to be done next. But I do ask of everyone that if you see this young boy, please be kind. I know what he did was upsetting and unacceptable, and surely he will learn from this. But being kind to one another is the most important thing, even if we’ve made mistakes in the past. Many thanks to Karachi Police for keeping the community safe.”
