    Yes it is true and most of the time unwanted hands work more bluntly when secret is kept secret. The reason behind this attitude is not fear nor it is typical shy behavior of our young girls but it is the self respect to maintain within ones inself. Most of the time it is heard in our social set up that a covered and veiled girl never face such a situation in bazaars and crowded markets, even this thought is an ultimate security to those who did such a shameful act. Actually such hands are feared of touching some one from their own family so they avoid otherwise there is no reason left behind to go for touching girls in crowds. This is the social sickness prevailed in our society and we want our young women to scared of their fellow men for nothing just to satisfy a lust with no prior pleasure in it.
