Ali Zafar SAVAGELY trolled for speaking out against Mohsin Abbas Haider
Pakistani singer and actor Ali Zafar was trolled on Twitter mercilessly after he tweeted in support of Fatema Sohail, who accused her husband Mohsin Abbas Haider of domestic abuse.
Mohsin is in hot water after his wife called him out on social media for beating her up while she was pregnant. Mohsin denied the accusations and claimed that he had not cheated on his wife and she had fallen down the stairs which had caused her injuries.
A host of celebrities criticised Mohsin which included Mehwish Hayat, Mahira Khan, Dua Malik, Humaima Malick, Hania Aamir and Gohar Rasheed, among others.
Ali Zafar took to Twitter and spoke in favour of Fatema.
“Fatima’s story is heart wrenching. We should respect her courage and bravery, and stand together to support the victims of domestic violence. #StopDomesticViolence,” he tweeted.

However, people called out Ali Zafar as a ‘hypocrite’ citing his own sexual harassment scandal involving Meesha Shafi.
What about harassing your coworker and running media campaigns against her? Cheer up maybe they'll arrest you too

Meesha's story is heart wrenching [especially because of your vile campaigning]. We should respect her courage and bravery, and stand together to support the victims of sexual harassment. #SexualHarassment #MeToo

Ali Zafar was accused last year of sexual harassment by Meesha Shafi. The songstress had alleged that Zafar had sexually harassed her more than once.
Zafar denied the charges and filed a defamation suit against Shafi.
