Social Media Reacts as Meesha Shafi Accuses Ali Zafar of Sexual Harassment

The Twitterverse went into a meltdown on Thursday after singer and actress Meesha Shafi accused pop star, actor and composer Ali Zafar of sexual harassment – an allegation he denied categorically a few hours later.

Meesha, making first-of-their-kind allegations in the entertainment industry, claimed that she was sexually harassed more than once by Zafar. The Coke Studio singer, refuting the allegations, said he intended to take the matter to the courts of law.

Shaking the Pakistani entertainment industry to the core, the allegations quickly became a widely discussed topic on social media, as celebrities and the public at large chose their sides and shared their thoughts on the country’s equivalent of the breakthrough #MeToo movement.

Meesha Shafi, who is the 36-year-old mother of two children, stated that it was time that she shared her story so that the culture of silence regarding sexual harassment ends and more women are inspired by her example to step forward.

As expected, Pakistani Twitterati have a lot to say about the recent disclosure by Mrs. Shafi, with many throwing their support behind her and applauding her courage in naming and shaming her harasser:

About Ali Zafar, who himself is a showbiz superstar, Mrs. Shafi had this to say:

“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.”


Patari, the music-streaming startup which recently faced a high-profile sexual harassment case with their ex-CEO last week, tweeted in support of Mesha Shafi as well:

There are some people who think otherwise regarding this development:

Why are you guys even listening to this woman’s statement? What is the comparison between Ali Zafar and Meesha Shafi????? She is not even 10% of Ali’s career loooooolllll

Reportedly, after Meesha went public with her experience, Ali Zafar was asked to comment on the accusations that were levied against him. For the time being, Ali Zafar has responded that he does not wish to talk about this development right now.
