Pakistani Govt gave a National Award to a Sexual Harasser, Iffat Omar
On the occasion of Independence Day, the President of Pakistan announced to give civil awards to 184 personalities who have rendered services to the country. On which actress Iffat Omar wrote on Twitter yesterday, without naming anyone, that in the 21st century it is only possible in Pakistan to give an award by the government to a person allegedly involved in sexual harassment.
Only in Pakistan an alleged Harraser gets an award backed by the Govt.Nowhere else in 21st cen. #PakistanZindabad

She also used the hashtag “Long live Pakistan”. Iffat Omar did not specify in her tweet who she was talking about, but her tweet went viral on social media.
It should be noted that two years ago in 2018, singer Meesha Shafi had accused singer and actor Ali Zafar of sexual harassment, which led to a long legal battle between the two. Ali Zafar later claimed that Meesha Shafi could not prove her allegations, the court dismissed her case and thus Ali Zafar won the case.
According to social media users, the actress has said this about Ali Zafar. A large number of social media users came out in favor of Ali Zafar and criticized actress Iffat Omar for making allegations without any evidence. They are saying that if she has any evidence, she should present it in court.
@AliZafarsays …innocent until proven guilty…its with the courts. We cannot be the judge…..and if @itsmeeshashafi says 'i had forgiven and forgotten'..then how can you remember it again…after #MeToo movement starts…no one can act normally for 6 months with that person

میں نے سنا ہے علی ظفر کیس جیت گیا ہے اگر وہ جیت گیا یے تو اسکو ملوث ہونے کا کیسے کہا جا سکتا ہے؟؟؟
کیا ایک عورت کے کہنے پر ہی گناہگار مان لیا جائے؟؟؟
کیا عورت جھوٹ نہیں بول سکتی؟؟؟

Criticism against the Turkish drama ‘Ertugrul’ by some Pakistani Artists is Shameful, Zahid Ahmed
The series of statements in favor of or against the Turkish drama serial based on Islamic conquests is not new. Many Pakistani artists have made statements in favor of it, and in their view, similar Islamic and instructive stories should be worked on in Pakistan as well.

Pakistani actor #ZahidAhmed believes religious content based on historic figures should be incorporated in Pakistani dramas, and mentions the success of Turkish drama Diriliş:Ertuğrul which is currently being aired on PTV as an example. He also says that some local celebrities behaved quite shamefully when it came to airing foreign content on national channels when instead they should have been more welcoming because their job opportunities aren't going anywhere. @zahid.ahmed.official – Video by @wajihuddin
The actor said that the argument made by some artists against the series was very embarrassing and useless. Artists have concerns about foreign content is being broadcast in Pakistan, which will cause problems for their jobs.
Zahid Ahmed said that if you are good at your job then you should not worry because your job will not go anywhere. We should be ashamed that we as a Muslim country are unable to produce such material.
