Recently, vlogger Ukhano – aka Umar Khan – has been accused of sexual harassment by multiple women on social media.

The 28-year-old vlogger later release a statement on the matter as well. Many known personalities came out in his support too such as fellow YouTuber Mooro and famous foreign traveller, Eva Zu Beck.

However, another famous vlogger, Irfan Junejo believes victims should be heard and no one abuse their powers of influence.

“In times like these it is important to raise your voice and take a stance. The evidence is clear and stacking up,” Junejo tweeted. “There is a pattern visible; and if you are not a victim of said pattern – it does not mean the pattern hasn’t affected anyone else or does not exist.”

He further shared, “No person should be able to abuse their powers of influence. I feel deeply for the victims of these actions and hope that they get heard with integrity.”

Khan earlier, in a video shared, “I’ve worked very hard my whole life, shot several videos and have worked with a lot of women. I’m certain I’ve never made any of them uncomfortable,” he said.

“The reason I’m making this video is because I owe you guys the truth and the truth is that I know this person and I’ve worked with this person and that is it. Other than that, whatever allegations and claims have been made against me are lies,” he added.

On Tuesday, multiple women came forward with their claims against Umer, alleging he harassed them and acted inappropriately. There were several screenshots of the conversations between the vlogger and other girls that were offered as evidence, wherein Umer was seen asking women for bold pictures and sending unsolicited ones of himself.
