Meesha Shafi has managed to make headline again with a tweet that she did not post – but rather, retweeted.
A few days back, Pakistani’s woke up to claims of Meesha accusing Ali Zafar of sexual harassment on her Twitter account.
Her tweet has sparked a controversy that would not be forgotten for years to come!
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

Ali Zafar, however, chose not to respond to this accusation on social media and instead chose to take matters to the court.
