Ahsan Khan Says “Sexual Harassment Should Never Be Taken Lightly”
Ahsan Khan has always been an advocate for women’s rights which is why it comes as no surprise when he spoke in favor women regarding the topic of sexual harassment. When asked about the controversy that has overtook the nation about Meesha Shafi and Ali Zafar, Ahsan had only supportive and smart things to say.
“I would stand with all women who have been sexually harassed. Actually, I would stand with any person, not just women, who have suffered any type of harassment.”
He talked about how the incident with Samina Samoon, who was shot while pregnant for not dancing when asked, showed the sickness of our society. He mentioned how hard it is for victims to come out and speak up about what happened to them and instead of supporting or encouraging them, we only criticize them or make sick jokes.
About the Meesha and Ali controversy, he said that in any case we have to stand back and let our law authorities deal with it. When the truth comes out we can judge all we want but until then we should only be wishing for justice for whoever was wronged and not assassinate anyone’s character. “The only two people who know the facts in the Meesha and Ali case are Meesha and Ali themselves. I don’t think anyone else should muddle in the matter. I wish truth, peace, justice and the courage to admit fault to the both of them.”
