A filmmaker touched off a debate in Pakistan revolving around one question - can a Facebook friend request ever be considered harassment? Obaid-Chinoy's description of the Facebook request as "Harassment" triggered an angry response from many Pakistanis claiming she had overreacted. One of Obaid-Chinoy's most vocal detractors was journalist Ali Moeen Nawazish, who wrote on his own Facebook page that comparing a social media request to harassment was "Ridiculous." He added "Whats next, asking for a pen is harassment Looking at someone for three seconds will be harassment???". Facebook pages were created encouraging people to send Obaid-Chinoy friend requests. Many others, including both men and women, questioned whether a friend request amounted to harassment.
