Well-known singer, music composer and actor Ali Zafar finally broke his silence on Twitter, disagreeing with all the allegations of sexual harassment lodged against him by singer Meesha Shafi.
Responding to the recently made accusations Ali Zafar willfully expressed, “I intend to take this through the courts of law and to address this professionally and seriously rather than to lodge any allegations here.”
He stated, “I am deeply aware and in support of the global #MeToo movement and what it stands for. I am the father of a young girl and a young boy, a husband to wife and a son to a mother”
Furthermore he added, “I have nothing to hide. Silence is absolutely not an option”.
On Thursday afternoon, the 36 year old singer and mother, Meesha Shafi, revealed that she was sexually harassed by Zafar on more than one occasion. This is the first time a Pakistani celebrity with such an established profile has alleged that a colleague harassed her.
