Pakistani artiste Meesha Shafi has just accused Ali Zafar of sexually harassing her on more than one occasion. Meesha tweeted out an official statement telling her followers that by doing so she hopes she could break the culture of silence. She also mentioned that this was very difficult for her to do and she feels betrayed by Ali’s actions as he is someone she has known for years.
Here’s the tweet.
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 pic.twitter.com/iwex7e1NLZ
