Three more women level sexual harassment allegations against Ali Zafar
A day after Pakistani singer Meesha Shafi accused actor-singer Ali Zafar of sexual harassment, three more women have raised their voice against him. Make-up artist Leena Ghani, journalist Maham Javaid and blogger Humna Raza took to Twitter to laud Shafi for having the courage to speak up and shared their stories as well. Here are the details.
Thank you @itsmeeshashafi for your courage and your bravery. It’s never easy. But that should never silence us. I am in total solidarity with you. You are not alone in this because #Metoo #TimesUp #WeBelieveYou pic.twitter.com/hkQ61bqnFH— Leena (@Leena_Ghani) April 19, 2018
So @itsmeeshashafi's brave sharing of her experience reminded me of a story about @AliZafarsays from many many years ago, when Ali Zafar tried to kiss my cousin and pull my cousin into a restroom with him. Luckily my cousin's friends were there to push Ali Zafar off https://t.co/kBQbBiwyFP— Maham Javaid (@JMaham) April 19, 2018
Refuting Shafi's claims, Ali said, "I categorically deny all claims of harassment lodged against me by Shafi. I'm in support of the #MeToo movement and what it stands for. I'm the father of a young girl and a young boy, a husband to a wife and a son to a mother." "I intend to take this through the courts of law," he added.
