Songstress Meesha Shafi shook the nation last month when she accused her colleague Ali Zafar for sexual exploitation and physical abuse. Hours after the accusation, more women joined the list of the victims who alleged Ali Zafar of sexually harassing them on separate occasions.
The story did not end here, another woman came forward yesterday claiming that she has been harassed by the actor-cum-singer Ali Zafar.
Noor E Sehar, a Karachi based marketing executive, accused the rockstar of holding her hand and touching her in a weird manner in a party.
While sharing her experience, Noor said,
“It was a party in Lahore, I went to it with my friend. Ali Zafar came in a little later into the night and I noticed that he kept looking at me for some time. Eventually, he came up to me and tried to strike a conversation. I’m normally very shy so I wasn’t really responding much. He kept trying to talk for a really long time, would leave and then come back. But as time went by, he kept trying to get close to me. It was a party and the music was loud so he kept closing in on me, talking to me in my ear and forcefully holding my hands and touching them in a weird manner. I told him three times, literally my words were, “I’m not interested”. I think I said the same to him two more times, that I’m not interested, but he wouldn’t take no for an answer. Towards the end of the night, he invited me to another singer’s house. Of course, I didn’t go.”
Noor further added,
“To be honest, I haven’t been hiding this incident, I’ve spoken to my friends about it. I never spoke about it publicly because I never really found the right platform. Regarding the backlash, I haven’t really thought about it. But the reason I’m speaking up now is because I don’t want to regret not speaking later.”
