With Meesha Shafi having accused Ali Zafar for multiple accounts of sexual harassment, Ali Zafar replying and denying the events, other people coming up with their stories and run-ins with Ali, some celebrities taking weird stances, and some demanding answers, we have seen a whole wave of celebrities coming up and talking about the issue. Here is what they have to say
Urwa Hocane quoted Meesha’s tweet and supported her
Mahira Khan stood up for victims and pleaded for people to STOP victim blaming
Hamza Ali Abbasi went on a whooole different tangent altogether
Sonya Hussyn also stood up for women all around
In-house supporter of all things right, Osman Khalid Butt was seen quoting directly from Meeshas statements
And also weighing in his two cents
What Waqar Zaka was trying to say did make sense to an extent, however, the way he called Meesha’s statement a publicity stunt, well…
Maya Ali played a neutral card, where she didn’t really declare her support for either side but said we should all wait for the truth to come out
Veteran actor, Iffat Omar spoke her heart out at the issue, pledging her support for Meesha Shafi
Reham Khan was also Team Meesha
Actor, host, controversy stirrer, Maya Khan also shared her thoughts on the issue
My only request is to wait and see what the other side of the picture Is!
Jo sach hai vo samnay aey ga.
Wishing everyone a blessed night.
Please give ur feedback if u think it's fair to wait for the other side too.

Ayesha Omer spoke about how coming out with something like Meesha’s incident requires a lot of inner strength and courage, while talking to a news channel at the Karachi premiere for “Motorcycle Girl”
At the same event actress Naveen Waqar expressed her shock over the incident saying you always believe that something like this will never happen around you, but then it does
Hamza Ali Abbasi also said, one more time, that clear lines should be drawn between two people interacting with each other so such incidents are avoided in the future
Adnan Siddiqui however, extremely disappointingly, made a mockery out of the whole event, saying that all members of the industry should also brace themselves because they’ll come after them now, while constantly laughing
Ahsan Khan spoke about how we should take sexual harassment very very seriously
Momina Mustehsan was on fireee with her statement on the whole issue
And called for an #ImSorry movement to start from those who perpetrate harassment
And she followed it up, asking Ali Zafar one very important question that every man must ask themselves
Armeena Khan just couldn’t get over the fact that the people who were commenting on the situation were being absolutely disgusting
