Ali Zafar Row: A journalist tells that he tried to kiss her cousin and pull her in restroom


Pakistani singer Meesha Shafi alleged fellow singer and actor Ali Zafar yesterday for misbehaving with her physically. In a social media post, she openly admitted of being sexually harassed and took the name of Ali Zafar for doing this to her.

Ali Zafar as a reply denied the claims and said that he will take the matter legal way.

Now more girls have come against the Pakistani multi-talented artist alleging him for sexual harassment.

Journalist Maham Javaid also took to Twitter to claim that many years ago Ali Zafar tried to kiss her cousin and pull her into a restroom with him.

She tweeted-

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

In another tweet, she wrote-

This was on a boat on the way to a party at the Yacht Club between 2004-2005. Why don’t I remember the date? Bc this is what’s crazy: in those days such sexual harassment was such a non issue and simultaneously such a taboo that we hardly spoke about it

We didn’t even think of telling anyone, apart from friends, or reporting him because “he’s a celebrity, no one would possibly care or listen”. And tbh over the years we forgot the story ourselves, until today. Thanks @itsmeeshashafi for reminding us that our stories matters

Make up artist Leena Ghani shared an incident on Twitter and said that while taking a selfie with Ali she felt his hand going up her waist.

Mahira also posted a cryptic tweet and wrote-

The sick mentality of those commenting on an issue as serious as sexual harassment as casually as they are just shows where the root of this problem exists – in our minds. We will continue to breed harassers for as long as we continue to desensitise this issue.

Do you think Ali Zafar could have done this? Let us know in the comment section.
