Human rights activist, lawyer Hassan Niazi – who also fought Khadija Siddiqui’s stabbing case – has come forward with a startling claim.
Niazi took to Twitter to share how Meesha Shafi ‘threatened’ to initiate a #MeToo campaign against him.
“Meesha team hits new low. Sending me threats of #MeToo campaign against me,” he wrote. “Typical Ayesha Gulalai mindset in community, which damages the #MeToo campaign for their personal point scoring. Let me make it clear,blackmail me and I will expose u more.”
Meesha, however, rebutted Niazi’s claims, saying she has never even met Niazi.
“Don’t think I’ve ever met this guy and neither am I accusing him of anything,” she tweeted. “Although he did inbox me for a retweet last year. Don’t remember if I responded. Do remember that I didn’t retweet.”
The Aaya Lariye singer then added, “Also, by all means all are free to investigate whatever interests them, only to discover a bottomless pit of groped bottoms. All other conspiracy theories are just that.”
Meesha commented, “Gaslighting.”
Recently in a Twitter thread, Shafi lauded all the artists who dropped their LSA nominations to express solidarity with her and the #MeToo movement.
