In her latest tweet, the coke studio singer said that nothing will change until they acknowledge, take responsibility and make amends.
In her official statement she said: “I too have been a subject of harassment, and this issue is bigger than just that of Ali Zafar.”
“This is about the relationship of trust that men take for granted with women. Very often, as we can see, women are violated by the very men they know, trust and often work with. It takes a lot to gather the courage to come out and say this, and it is my fervent hope that people will see that saying this is very difficult for any woman. I personally stand to lose more than I can gain, BUT this cause is greater than any one man or woman. It s about humanity and dignity, about equality and honor. I pray that people will stand by women who have been violated and victimized.”
