Speaking to the media regarding the sad incident, Gauhar stated that the man had physically hurt her; but more than that she felt hurt mentally. Saying that the offender had attacked her integrity and is trying to cover up the wrong he did by making claims of what he thought the youth of India needed.
Questioning the safety of women, Gauhar raised a question as to why a person like Malik did not have any fear of the law before attacking an unarmed woman. In an educated society, if one needs to speak up against something, it should be done in a peaceful manner and they should have a dialogue, not go around attacking people.
Gauhar kept up her spirit as she said she is hurt and shocked but more determined and stronger than ever.
