Imam-Ul-Haq Was Called Out For Allegedly Cheating On Multiple Women And It Has Sparked A Debate Around Consent

By Aam Nawab | 25 Jul, 2019

Imam-ul-Haq’s alleged infidelity has divided the internet over the #MeToo movement.

Last night, several women, some of who chose to remain anonymous came out with allegations against Pakistani cricketer Imam-ul-Haq. The women claimed that Imam had been cheating on them and was allegedly dating 7 to 8 women at the same time.

The issue being brought to light was Imam-ul-Haq’s alleged infidelity. According to the women who came forward, they felt they had been lied to and manipulated by Imam-ul-Haq. The women were allegedly under the impression that they were in a monogamous relationship with Imam but that was not the case.

One of the women who came forward gave the following statement about the issue.

But there were a lot of people who did not agree with the way Imam-ul-Haq had been exposed on Twitter. Most people took issue with the fact that a cheating partner was being categorized in the #MeToo movement which was reserved for those who harass and commit crimes punishable by law.

But there were others who thought it did come under the #MeToo movement in our cultural context and even if it didn’t, the issue at hand and the women’s experiences should not be dismissed entirely because of a misused hashtag since.

But the issue regarding consent was heavily debated by everyone. 

But then there were those who pointed out that the women’s consent was under false pretenses as Imam had been lying to them. Thus it did not qualify as consent.

This entire incident has started a messy debate on what should be included in the #MeToo movement and what shouldn’t be. 

Imam-ul-Haq or his representatives have yet to comment on the allegations made by several women. What do you think of Imam-ul-Haq being exposed? Let us know in the comments below.
