Harassment of any type is “not okay”, reiterated Mustehsan, including: “I’d wish to ask Ali Zafar and all different males one query: do you assume you’ve got ever, knowingly or unknowingly, violated a lady in any manner or type? When you’ve got (nobody is an angel), I request you to acknowledge your fault, apologise unconditionally, be taught from the errors, and turn into a greater human being.”
