This sparked a debate on social media where people shared their rights and wrongs on the entire situation. Public figures and celebs also shared their opinion on this.

And Not to Forget How ‘Great’ of a Marketing Stunt this is

A lot of people are claiming that the screenshot posted by Ali Moeen wasn’t authentic and one needs to verify it before passing the judgments. On the other hand, people are collectively slamming Sharmeen Obaid for the use of the word ‘harassment’.

While there is a clear difference in opinion on the usage of this word, the bigger, which is a doctor sending out a request to his patient is being neglected.
