Meesha Shafi reveals why she deactivated her social media accounts

A couple of weeks after Meesha Shafi alleged that Ali Zafar sexually harassed her, the singer has deactivated her Facebook and Instagram accounts.

The Speaker Phaar singer has faced cyber bullying after she accused Ali of “sexual harassment of a physical nature“, in light of which, Meesha tells Images, she decided to close down all her social media accounts save for Twitter.

Images: You seem to have closed down your Instagram and Facebook accounts. Could you tell us why?

Meesha Shafi: They have been deactivated for very obvious reasons, one would think. The abuse, threats, bullying and slander that I have faced is the reason I felt the strong need to protect not just myself but my family, especially my two young children who were also being subjected to personal attacks online.
