In the wake of sexual harassment incidents occurring all around the world, Pakistani singer Meesha Shafi has accused Ali Zafar of sexual harassment.

The 36-year-old mother of two took to Twitter to share her experience with Ali. Meesha stated that she was sharing her story because she feels that speaking about such issues will break the culture of silence.



In a photo uploaded on Twitter, Meesha wrote, "I have been subjected to sexual harassment of a physical nature at the hands of a colleague from my industry: Ali Zafar. These incidences did not happen when I was young or just entering the industry. This happened to be despite the fact that I am an empowered, accomplished woman who is known for speaking her mind! This happened to me as a mother of two children."

The Aya Lariye singer also added that this has been a very traumatic experience for her and her family. She further expressed, "Ali is someone I have known for many years and someone I shared the stage with. I feel betrayed by his behaviour and his attitude and I know that I am not alone."

Pakistani singer, Fakhre Alam has come forth to give his two cents on the matter. He tweeted that he knows both of them and wants to clarify that he is not taking any sides. However, he hopes that this is a misunderstanding between the two.



We're currently awaiting a comment from both, Meesha and Ali.

raisa | 1 year ago | Reply | Recommend It's tough for a woman to come out with any details about harassment in Pakistani culture and it leaves one wondering if Ali Zafar's crime was worth the public shaming.
Sara Khan | 1 year ago | Reply | Recommend The #MeToo campaign should be a wakeup call for all of us. That movement has turned a spotlight on workplace misconduct, starting with women. And the main thing is that if the girl is making such a big statement there must be some truth to it ...why would she do that when she knows her name is also in this. That’s true statement and I’m with Meesha Shafi. #MeToo #SupportMeeshaShafi #JusticeforMeeshaShafi #ShameOnAliZafar #Harassment #AliZafarCulprit #AliZafarSexualHarraser #SexualHarassment #WomenRights #HarassmentCase
