Sharing this because I believe that by speaking out about my own experience of sexual harassment, I will break the culture of silence that permeates through our society. It is not easy to speak out.. but it is harder to stay silent. My conscience will not allow it anymore #MeToo pic.twitter.com/iwex7e1NLZ

She added that these incidents did not happen at the time she was young or a fresh bee for the industry. She said that this happened in spite of the fact that she was independent, empowered and a successful woman who is known for uttering her mind out loud. She maintained that this happened to me when I was a mother of two children.
The Aya Lariya singer also informed that this had been a painful experience both for her and her family. She further expressed that Ali Zafar is someone she has known for years and had the chance of even sharing a stage with him.
