Meesha Shafi resorted to Twitter and shared when Ali Zafar allegedly harassed her:
Sharing this because I believe that by speaking out about my own experience of sexual harassment, I will break the culture of silence that permeates through our society. It is not easy to speak out.. but it is harder to stay silent. My conscience will not allow it anymore #MeToo pic.twitter.com/iwex7e1NLZ

Her tweets and her ideas are the reflections of what she thinks about equality for women and how she has always shown her support for her gender. She has always stood for the harassment incidents and has spoken for the victim, and today she spoke for herself.
The internet literally exploded in Pakistan after Meesha Shafi claimed of sexual harassment against her by Ali. Since then, people of all ages had come forward and supported her cause, before Ali Zafar came out with his official reply.
Ali Zafar was quick to react; he denies all accusations and wants to take legal action
Both, Meesha Shafi and Ali Zafar are huge names in the Pakistani music and film industry. They have not only shined in the local industry but have also made their names in international industries; Meesha working in the Reluctant Fundamentalist and Ali Zafar working in various Indian films.
