Ali Zafar refutes allegation of harassment against him

A day after singer-actor Ali Zafar was accused of sexual harassment by Pakistani singer Meesha Shafi, Raees actress Mahira Khan has reacted to the controversy by slamming social media users for commenting on the serious issue so "casually". While Ali Zafar has "categorically declined allegations made by Ms Shafi" in his official statement, many women have thanked her for giving them the courage to speak out against the singer.

Singer-actor Zafar, a well-known face in Bollywood, has "categorically denied all claims of harassment" and said that he "intends to take this through the courts of law". Today I speak up because my conscience doesn't allow me to be silent anymore.

"I intend to take this through the courts of law, and to address this professionally and seriously rather than to lodge any accusations here", he wrote on Twitter.

"Ultimately, I am a strong believer that the truth always prevails", Mr. Zafar had said in a statement posted on twitter. He also stated that he is a father of a young girl, a husband, and a son. She also played a small role in Farhan Akhtar's "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag".

A make-up artist, Ghani wrote on Twitter that her cousin was also among the women who had been sexually harassed by Zafar. "So, Meesha Shafi's courageous sharing of her experience reminded me of a story about Ali Zafar from many, many years ago, when Ali Zafar tried to kiss my cousin and pull my cousin into a restroom with him. I've had support around me, I consider myself an empowered woman, and I still had such a hard time with this decision", she said.

"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. In the many years, I have known Ali, he has on several occasions crossed boundaries of what is appropriate behavior between friends".

"I feel betrayed by his behaviour and his attitude". "I'd expect more names to follow because sexual harassment is quite prevalent in Pakistan's fashion and film/TV industry".
