Ali Zafar: ‘Truth shall prevail, I know me and I know my faith in HIM’

Although  Ali Zafar’s Accuser Says  She Has  ‘Proof’ Of Harassment Ali Says, ““Truth shall prevail. I know me and I  know my  faith in  HIM”.

 The  sexual harassment  issue involving singer-actor Ali Zafar is not as simple as it seems. Nor is it going to fall easily into the ‘Harvey Weinstein’ slot. Ali seems  to have as many supporters as  dissenters in his fight to  prove his innocence.

And fight he will.

When I reached  out to Ali Zafar he  responded, “Truth shall prevail. I know me and I  know my  faith in  HIM”.

This proclamation was  not  a selfrighteous  defence of  a man trying to put up a show of bravado in  the face of an ugly allegation. Ali Zafar is  actually determined  to prove his innocence because he  believes  in it.His friends family fans and many colleagues from the Pakistani entertainment  industry are firmly behind him. A prominent actor from Pakistan sent me  a defence  of Ali and then deleted  it saying he will speak at the “right” time.

Meaning, at  a time when more of Ali’s  colleagues and friends would come forward in his  support. The fact that women have come forward to defend  him openly on  social media  without fear  of being labeled traitors to the MeToo cause is ample proof of the strength that Ali derives from his  belief in his innocence.

According  to sources Ali’s wife Ayesha is also “full and  unconditionally” aligned with her  husband’s  innocence.

“It’s not  going to be  easy to make Ali  Zafar look culpable  because he  has a  a lot of support  within  Pakistan’s entertainment industry. He doesn’t have   a sleazy reputation at all. Also, when the  accuser claims she has  proof of Ali’s guilt what  does that mean? She took picture while the alleged misconduct  happened?  What proof can  one have  of  sexual  transgressions?”

 Significantly  the accuser Meesha Shafi’s lawyer claimed in a television interview that she has  not received Ali Zafar’s  legal notice asking for a public apology for her allegation in lieu of  a defamation suit.

Even  more significantly Ali Zafar is  in no mood to back down .

“He will fight this . It’s  about his  reputation.Ali  Zafar is  very image conscious. He will fight this  until he proves his innocence,” says a  source,
