Karachi, Islamabad and Lahore are cities that are worlds apart despite being in the same country. And when people visit these cities, their reactions are always priceless!
Visiting Islamabad and one of its malls, these Karachiites were shocked when they had to pay a fee just to enter the mall. Feeling scammed, the two decided to share their dukh-bhari dastan with the internet:

And the netizens are way too amused!
I got to know this today and im surprised by this.
I mean is a mall new concept to you people? and you actually pay to enter a place that is actually meant for you to enter and spend money.
luckyone, dolmen, atrium, millenium, rj zindabad https://t.co/9OujuVfkjU

People were comparing Lucky One and Centaurus:
I swear this is so true and also I would never pay rs 300 to enter such a mediocre mall. Centaurus is so blegh in front of our luckyone but Islamabadis aren’t ready to talk about it. https://t.co/R8CRCmC4it

Jbh Lucky One/dolmen >>>>> Centaurus https://t.co/5WqlKvFeOl

And while some people had their reservation on why there was an entry fee, others explained why:
You go out ONCE in Pakistan as the only guy with the women of your family and you realise why this ticket actually makes so much sense. https://t.co/gl4jKppriv

As far as I remember Sunday used to be family day at lucky one mall Karachi paise de k b nai ja skte the. All these malls have made rules to create safe environment for families. Unfortunate and shameful as a society for us https://t.co/1eDOYNZAml

People were suggesting that they charge an entry fee at Karachi’s Lucky One mall too:
nvm this ticket thing should be implemented at lucky one too https://t.co/xVXpAoDvK4
— Jiya Ali Hussain (@grumpyzany) June 9, 2021
People were also sharing how the amount can be used inside:
The 300 rs ticket can be used as coupons for shopping inside. Kisi ko kuch ni pta 🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️ https://t.co/wRBG4qzOUH
— Shujaat 🇵🇸 (@shujaatblogs) June 10, 2021
The fee was installed after bus loads of single men would show up to harass women. Centaurus became almost impossible for women to shop. And businesses lost paying customers to those who wanted to come harass women. I think a fee is more than justified to keep women safe.
