Two months ago in October, award-winning Pakistani filmmaker Jamshed Mehmood, aka Jami had taken to Twitter to share his account of #MeToo as he revealed that he had been raped by a media mogul some 13 years ago.
“Why I am so strongly supporting #metoo? cuz I know exactly how it happens now […] I was brutally raped by a very powerful person in our media world. A giant actually. And yes, I’m taller than him but I froze, not sure why. Yes, it really happens and happened to me,” Jami had written.
In a series of tweets following this, he shared how to date he’s traumatized and scared to take the name of the media giant.
However, yesterday night the Moor director finally broke the silence as he disclosed CEO Dawn media group Hameed Haroon as his rapist.
“Yes HAMEED HAROON Raped me. Im ready now. R u ready to print this @dawn_com?” tweeted Jami.
Following Jami’s accusation, Twitter is abuzz with media personalities, activists and general audience asking Dawn and its CEO for an answer. So far the other party has not issued any statement on the matter.
