The 36 year-old and mother of two Meesha Shafi shocked us all by sharing her experience with Ali Zafar. The singer took Twitter to break her silence saying that she was sexually harassed by him on multiple occasions.

Here’s what she shared on her Twitter:

“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 I am an empowered, accomplished woman who is known for speaking her mind! This happened to me as a mother of two children.”

Shafi continued, “Despite having a voice, there are some issues that are very difficult to speak about as a woman, especially sexual harassment.”

“If this can happen to someone like me, an established artist, then it can happen to any young woman hoping to break into the industry and that concerns me gravely.”

She added, “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.”

Shafi who has featured prominently in Coke Studio further 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 behavior and his attitude and I know that I am not alone.”

“Today I am breaking this culture of silence and I hope that by doing that I am setting an example for young women in my country to do the same. We only have our voices and the time has come to use them.” 

It comes to the whole world as a shock as we had never thought the ‘perfect’ hubby Ali Zafar would do such a thing! However, we have not yet his side of the story as of yet.

Shafi is a prominent figure in Pakistan’s entertainment industry. She has also been vocal about human rights. She voiced her support in favor of the #MeToo movement on social media. Recently, she also featured in UN Women Pakistan’s campaign that aimed at raising awareness about violence against women.

Ali Zafar himself is also a big name, not only in Pakistan but in Bollywood as well!
