Patari is a well-known music platform which is quite popular in Pakistan. However, in a recent turn of events, Patari CEO Khalid Bajwa has stepped down after being accused of harassment by not one, but 2 women.

The company made an official statement on their social media platforms, in which it states that Bajwa will no longer be with the platform and that the company will stand by the victims.

They added that the investigation had been ongoing before the allegations had come forward.

Bajwa is openly being criticised for the tweets he had written in the past in regards to females and their orientation.

The women took it to Twitter to express what had been going on. While giving an interview to ET, one of the girls said, “I knew him through Twitter before Patari was even formed. The first time I met him was at Lahore Music Meet (LMM) and he welcomed me with a hug that made me very awkward.”

The other girl had stated, “Bajwa used to force me to meet him. He would make plans that he’d pick me up from college and take me to his office.” She eventually blocked him, after which Bajwa contacted her on Instagram and requested her not to expose him “for the sake of his daughter and wife.”

On the other hand, COO of Patari Ahmer Naqvi said, “Our official statement is the only thing we will be saying right now.”

“I am overwhelmed and amazed at all the love and support. Received very little backlash. What a time to be alive. I regret not opening up about this earlier. Look what happened, girls! So so proud and happy.” one of the girls wrote applauding the effort made by the company.
