In a recent interview with BBC Asian network Ali Zafar has spoken for the first time about the sexual harassment allegation while promoting Teefa In Trouble. He told BBC presenter Haroon Rashid, “With time everything comes out and the truth unveils itself”
Ali Zafar said “People will find out in time. With time everything comes out and the truth unveils itself. I, since day one, said that I will not fight this over social media as I will take the professional course and I have sought professional remedies and the due course of law shall give justice in time.”
On being asked if he could’ve intentionally or unintentionally harmed or affected Meesha, Zafar firmly replied, “No. Never could that have happened because if it did she was a very close family friend, she used to come to our house, she was my wife’s friend”.
Ali Zafar continued giving his statement, “We had a concert together, and the jam that she’s talking about, that has a video and there were 10 witnesses and two witnesses out of that jam were women. They came out in the open and said that ‘we were there how could she event think and say this? That is why I was more hurt, because I’ve been working towards women’s empowerment.”
It was a blunt interview in which BBC presenter Haroon asked several questions regarding this harassment allegation on one point Ali Zafar tried to divert the conversation, but Haroon Rashid brought him back on track and asked the question, “What Meesha has to gain if her allegations are proven untrue?”
Although Ali Zafar refused to comment on this particular question as he did not seem to be worried by the fact that there few people who are planning on boycotting Teefa In Trouble, Ali Zafar responded, “I don’t worry because when you know things and when you are on the right side and know the truth you don’t worry because falsehood by its nature is bound to perish”.
It all started in April when Meesha Shafi took to social media accusing singer actor Ali Zafar of sexual harassment. The case is being perused in the court of law at the moment.
