Did Ali Zafar harass Meesha Shafi? Two witnesses share their account on the jam session

In the wake of the #MeToo movement, Pakistani actor-singer Meesha Shafi recently came out and accused Ali Zafar of subjecting her to sexual harassment of a physical nature. Following this, a number of women opened up about their experiences of alleged sexual harassment by Ali, who has issued a clarification in his defense. As told by Meesha to The News, Ali behaved inappropriately with her on two incidents. She said that she ignored it the first time, but soon after it happened the second time in a jam room. “I was jamming with my band in Lahore and the organisers insisted that he was trying to get in touch. It started turning into a thing, and I was being seen as difficult or a diva, I got such feelers. I was avoiding him. I was asked to jam, figure out songs, scale and it happened while we were jamming,” Meesha had said.

According to the latest development, two other women who were reportedly present at the same jam session, have denied any such incident. Aqsa Ali took to social media and wrote write that she was shocked by Meesha’s allegations. Aqsa maintains that Ali is like a gentleman even to women who throw themselves at him. “I was at this jam session becoz I sing in Ali’s band and so was her manager and our entire band. I am astonished that she would take a lie to this level which so many of us can prove wrong,” [sic] wrote Aqsa. Check out her post below…
