After Meesha Shafi, some more women accuse Ali Zafar of harassment!

Bollywood actor Ali Zafar who is known for his films like Tere Bin Laden, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and Dear Zindagi have been accused of sexual harassment by Pakistani singer Meesha Sahfi.

However, Ali Zafar denies the allegations and said that silence is not an option and he will take a legal course to counter Shafi’s charges against him.

But, hours after Meesha alleged Ali sexually harassed her on multiple occasions, more women took to Twitter with similar allegations. The accusers tweeted their support to Shafi saying she was not alone.

A make-up artist thanked the original accuser for being brave enough to speak out. “Seeing (the original accuser)’s courage it’s impossible for me to not speak now, not only in support of her but also to say she’s not alone. In the many years I have known Ali, he has on several occasions crossed boundaries of what is appropriate behaviour between friends,” she wrote.

She elucidated on how Ali’s behaviour displays a “clear lack of respect for women”.

Blogger Humna Raza also recounted when he inappropriately touched her at a public event.

LUMS Alumni, Maham Javaid took to Twitter explaining how Ali once tried to harass her cousin. She mentioned that they even thought of reporting him but since he is a celebrity, no one would have believed them.

On Thursday evening, Shafi sparked Pakistan’s #MeToo moment when she took to Twitter to allege Ali Zafar sexually harassed her on more than one occasion.

Meesha tweeted, “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 a statement released on Twitter, she made a revelation that startled everybody. “I have been subjected, on more than one occasion, 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 me 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 said. Furthermore, she said, “It has been an extremely traumatic experience for me and my family. Ali is someone I have known for many years and someone who I have shared the stage with. I feel betrayed by his behaviour and his attitude and I know that I am not alone.”
