Pakistani singer Atif Aslam stopped his Karachi concert mid-song on Saturday when he saw a female fan being harassed by some men.

"Haven't you seen a girl?" the singer asked the alleged harassers, according to the Times of India. "Your mother or sister could be here as well."

The singer called security, who pulled the girl on stage and took her to another part of the venue.

"Act like a human being," Aslam scolded the men to the cheers of the audience, before he resumed the show.

A video of the incident has been shared thousands of times on social media.

Aslam, who is also an actor, has been praised for taking a stand and publicly shaming the alleged harassers.
