The girl Maham Javaid shared the story of her cousin and tweeted, “So its Meesha Shafi’s brave sharing of her experience reminded me of a story about Ali Zafar says from many many years ago, when Ali Zafar tried to kiss my cousin and pull my cousin into a restroom with him. Luckily my cousin’s friends were there to push Ali Zafar off.” Maham said, “This was on a boat on the way to a party at the Yacht Club between 2004-2005. Why don’t I remember the date? Bc this is what’s crazy: in those days such sexual harassment was such a non-issue and simultaneously such a taboo that we hardly spoke about it.”
