So @itsmeeshashafi‘s brave sharing of her experience reminded me of a story about @AliZafarsays from many many years ago, when Ali Zafar tried to kiss my cousin and pull my cousin into a restroom with him. And tbh over the years we forgot the story ourselves, until today. Related News

Ali Zafar has been accused of harassment by three women. In her post, Meesha wrote, “I have been subjected, on more than one occasion, to sexual harassment of a physical nature at the hands of a colleague from my industry: Ali Zafar. These incidences did not happen when I was young, or just entering the industry. These happened to me despite the fact that I am an empowered, accomplished woman who is known for speaking her mind! Bc this is what’s crazy: in those days such sexual harassment was such a non issue and simultaneously such a taboo that we hardly spoke about it

We didn’t even think of telling anyone, apart from friends, or reporting him because “he’s a celebrity, no one would possibly care or listen”. Luckily my cousin’s friends were there to push Ali Zafar off http://t.co/kBQbBiwyFP

This was on a boat on the way to a party at the Yacht Club between 2004-2005. This happened to me as a mother of two children.”
Meesha also mentioned that she wasn’t the only one and looks like that is the case as since then, other women have come forward with sexual harassment allegations against Ali Zafar. We will continue to breed harassers for as long as we continue to desensitise this issue. We will continue to breed harassers for as long as we continue to desensitise this issue.”
