Meesha Shafi Might Have Just SAVAGELY Roasted Iman Ali With Her Latest Comment

By Iman Zia | 26 Apr, 2019

Meesha Shafi just served a massive burn to Iman Ali, or did she?

The Lux Style Awards (LSAs) have been amassing controversy for the past few weeks after various nominees began withdrawing their name from this year’s batch after an alleged sexual harasser was included in the list. Prominent models like Eman Suleman and Rubab Ali, brands like Generation and musicians like ‘The Sketches’ have all withdrawn their name from respective categories in protest of the sexual harasser.

 

Meesha Shafi was one of the first artists to also withdraw from the LSAs as a result, and shortly afterward took to Twitter to commend fellow women who had also followed suit.

 

There have been the few celebrities who defend the LSAs, like model Sadaf Kanwal,

An award has no worth for anyone except to whom it is given to. It's a token of appreciation from your fellow peers, all the nominees who are elected with you hold that same respect and honor for their craft, yet you are the winner which means they have given you that respect and honor. People have the right to protest and even request not to be nominated if they please to do so, but to degrade an award and to treat it like a piece of garbage is truly sad and uncivilized. This means you have no regard for the art and your fellow peers who gave you the title. There are better ways to protest and let your voice be heard and the matter is already in court will be dealt by the law. LSA is the oldest running awards we have and has nothing to do with the other thing. Let's keep it that way by being civilized and respectful. (still if you want to put it out on the road it's better to return it to the LSA with dignity) #lsa2019 #luxstyleawards #respect #bedecent

Renowned model Iman Ali spoke up about the LSA debacle and blamed social media for defaming others for personal gains.

The model protested how “fame and respect should be earned with hard work…and not by childish walkouts and social media posts playing judge, jury, and executioner.”

A post shared by Iman Ali (@imanalyofficial) on

 

Iman’s statement sparked outrage, with many criticizing the model for tainting the #MeToo movement in Pakistan and contributing to a regressive, societal mindset that did not take harassment in a more grave manner. Furthermore, the model was accused of deleting comments under her post that questioned her contentious statements – including model Eman Suleman.

 

Meesha recently took to Twitter to commend Eman Suleman and might have also dismissed Iman Ali in her string of words.

Meesha said “there’s a new Eman in town. And she’s not just beautiful from the outside,” before ending with “so so much better than the last one.”

 

While we cannot ascertain that Meesha was referencing to Iman Ali, the timing of the tweet and the manner in which it was written does suggest that the musician was in fact, responding to the model’s controversial statements supporting the LSAs.
