Meesha Shafi, the woman who gave a rise to the #MeToo movement in Pakistan is among those celebrities whose song has been nominated for the LSA i.e. Lux Style Awards, but she chose to step down from it. The reason for that is her alleged sexual harasser, Ali Zafar is also nominated on the awards event. That being said, Meesha simply could not stand to be at the same place as her harasser where he is glorified and appreciated.All this happening around her while she struggled with her reputation and career, and fought her demons which according to Meesha, were set free on her by him.
A lot of celebrities stepped down from the LSA in union with Meesha Shafi, even though they all were nominated too. Some of the famous nominated artists are Eman Suleman, the brand Generation, and much more. More power to these incredibly brave ladies (and the people behind the brands who stepped down).
