She then directly addressed Ali Zafar and said that if he had in any way intentionally or unintentionally violated a woman in any way or form then she requested him to acknowledge his fault, apologize and learn from the made mistakes. "She said that this is really sad when he came to Washington DC for SK fundraiser I had high school volunteer crying in a bathroom because he molested her, Women like you protest men like that and vulnerable kids pay the price". It started turning into a thing, and I was being seen as hard or a diva, I got such feelers. "Luckily my cousin's friends were there to push Ali Zafar off". "I was asked to jam, figure out songs, scale and it happened while we were jamming", Shafi said.

Within hours of Meesha's allegations going puiblic, actor-turned singer also took to Twitter and wrote, "I categorically deny any and all claims of harassment lodged against me by Ms Shafi". This happened to me despite the fact that I am an empowered, accomplished woman who is known for speaking her mind! "I am a public figure and so is he (Ali Zafar)". I was very excited to see him and so I left the group and chose to go and get a selfie with him just like any fan would.

She further added that harassment not necessarily means rape, and it takes a lot of courage for a woman to come out and say it all. And when by some misfortune you do, you hide from him. In a long note on sexual harassment the singer didn't name anyone but ended up questioning Ali Zafar.
