Celebrities react to Meesha Shafi’s sexual misconduct allegation on Ali Zafar

#MeToo – Pakistani celebrities divided on Meesha Shafi and Ali Zafar sexual harassment controversy

The sexual harassment allegation against Pakistan’s top musician Ali Zafar by fellow singer Meesha Shafi has sent shock waves through Pakistani media industry.

Meesha Shafi’s accusation and Ali Zafar’s denial seems to have divided celebrities into groups, with many speaking in favor of the pop star while others taking Meesha’s side.

Let’s check who is on who’s side:

Supporters of Ali Zafar

Controversial TV celebrity Waqar Zaka publicly shamed Meesha for her claims.

Maya Ali who will be seen opposite Ali in the upcoming film, Teefa in Trouble, said she respects Ali Zafar and “want the truth to come out.”

I’m not here to say who is wrong and who is right or who did what and who didn’t… Let’s say, I haven’t known him for long, but I have been working with him since 1 year, we shot our film in Lahore and then we were all together in Poland to shoot the rest of the film and I never ever got any kind of that vibe from him… I always found him talking to his wife and kids on FaceTime and this made me a fan of him, because he would always share his good and bad moments with his wife and family… When we were on set or in any restaurant with the whole team he would always make sure that he was sharing these moments with her… I am not judging anyone nor giving any clarification on anyone’s behalf, and we can’t judge the one side of a book… I respect this man @ali_zafar and want the truth to come out, until then we shouldn’t judge anyone’s character…🙏🏻🙏🏻
