Comedian Junaid Akram Denies Sexual Harassment Allegations Despite Proofs And Umm…

The #MeToo movement has taken the world by storm and it is no shocker how the Pakistani society, sooner than later, is finally turning a new leaf towards this movement. It is evident it will take a lot of time, perhaps years to come, to recondition our society’s mindset towards admitting that such things do exist and yes, men do exploit their power and their status.

The worldwide movement has allowed women to come forward and lately a lot of it is happening in India – following sexual harassment allegations made on AIB comedians, Varun Grover, Nana Patekarr and various more names.
