The fact that Ali Zafar made it as the ‘Sexiest Pakistani Man’ has pissed off a lot of people, given the fact that he was accused of sexually harassing Meesha Shafi
People are particularly enraged that Ali is being given the prominence without the investigation not having concluded, yet. When Meesha Shafi made her allegations regarding the sexual harassment she allegedly faced at the hands of Ali Zafar, people couldn’t fathom it.
According to the last updates, the case had been dismissed by the Punjab Governor because it didn’t fall within the Protection Against Harassment of Women at Workplace Act 2010 because she was not an employee under the Act’s definition.
ALSO, JUST FYI FAWAD KHAN DIDN’T EVEN MAKE THE TOP TEN
LIKE ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
Regardless, people are seriously pissed off Ali Zafar made it to the list
Tell me again, how assault accusation ruins a man's career? https://t.co/1zF5kZwV12

i got the email saying "Ali Zafar voted the Most Sexiest Pakistani Man"
I almost replied to his PR "there seems to be a typo. I'm pretty sure you meant Most Sexist Pakistani Man"

Got PR email titled “Ali Zafar reclaims sexiest Pakistani crown” (whatever that means).
Legit read it as: “Ali Zafar is a sexist clown.”

Shameful. The year Ali Zafar was accused of sexual harassment by Meesha Shafi and many others ends with him being crowned the sexiest man in Pakistan? Infuriated beyond words. https://t.co/D3n4A7OrQ4

You really have some guts to put a harasser on that list in this #MeToo era , thanks to this kind of journalism people don't trust journalists anymore. Your headline is tragic.

What are your thoughts on the musician-turned-actor making the list?
