The most talked about topic since yesterday is the Meesha Shafi accusation of sexual harassment against Ali Zafar.

Meesha tweeted,

Ali Zafar denied her harassment claims and said,

Since then many celebrities have come forward taking sides of one or the other, from Maya Ali to Urwa Hocane and Osman Khalid Butt.

The tweet that has sparked yet another debate was by Hamza Ali Abbasi.

He said, “Random thought: With this entire #MeToo global epidemic on the rise, I am beginning to realize that ISLAM was right all along when it ordains gap between the 2 genders. So called modernism has brought us to a point where the line between flirting & harassment is insanely blurred.”

Furthermore he tweeted, “FOR EXAMPLE: The man flirts, the woman doesn’t tell him she is feeling uncomfortable, maybe he is in a position of power or other reasons, the man takes it as consent, the woman years later comes out saying she got harassed & the guy keeps thinking he just flirted with consent!”

“In any case, is a very serious issue globally no matter whose side you are on. Ahh, only if we (including me) listen to what Quran said 1400 yrs ago “Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (not look at a woman with lust) and guard their modesty” QURAN 24:30″

“I am not justifying men here neither justifying silence as consent, i am just saying how things are getting so blurred & so easily prone to manipulation! Easy liberal hawks… Easy! :-)”

The truth is that none of us know the truth. We can not give the woman an advantage because ‘hey she is a woman, and she had the courage to speak’, neither we can give a man benefit of the doubt because ‘he doesn’t seem like that’. We are nobody to decide or take sides. That is why these issues should be dealt in the court, not on social media.
