Online harrasment is increasing day by day even in Pakistan. Our youth have experience online harrasment at very young age. Pakistan have recently passed cyber security bill which will help to overcome this issue.
NR3C is Pakistan government organization where online community of Pakistan can report such incident. However there is a dire need that awareness campaigns should be run in every university and college.
