Meesha Shafi Accuses Ali Zafar Of Sexual Harassment

As the campaign #MeToo has helped bring many cases of sexual harassment to light and helped the victims to not only speak about their experiences but has also helped them to heal.

After many celebrities who have spoken previously Meesha Shafi too decided to break her silence today and accused her co star Ali Zafar of sexual harassment.

In a note attached to a tweet this afternoon Meesha Shafi penned down,

“Sharing this because I believe that by speaking out about my own experience of sexual harassment, I will break the culture of silence that permeates through our society. It is not easy to speak out.. but it is harder to stay silent. My conscience will not allow it anymore #MeToo”

In the note she said,

“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.”

She continued,

“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.”

Ali Zafar hasn’t confirmed or denied these allegations yet as everyone awaits his response.
