Pakistan’s two-time Academy Award winner Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy is in debate for her tweets against an Aga Khan University Hospital (AKUH) doctor who had sent her sister friend request on Facebook after treating her in the hospital. The issue has divided everyone and while majority of showbiz fraternity are condemning Chinoy for wrongly alleging the doctor for harassment and pushing authorities for get him fired, Verna lead actress Mahira Khan stands in support of her.
Khan, who recently encountered trolls on social media, was guest on one the morning shows on Monday to promote her upcoming Shoaib Mansoor’s film Verna. When asked what was her take on the recent controversy, Khan replied, “If a doctor uses your personal information to approach you, then it definitely is the wrong code of conduct.”
“We have to use our platform to speak out. If someone is voicing their concern about let’s say, a doctor, you have to use it. The debate is how far they take it,” she maintained.
While Khan supported Chinoy, her Verna co-star Haroon Shahid felt that sending a friend request on Facebook was not harassment in any way.
Earlier, Hamza Ali Abbasi, who hardly fails to share his opinion about anything, also tweeted and urged Chinoy to realize the actual meaning of sexual harassment.
