Filmmaker Jami Reason To Support #MeToo Surfaces

Filmmaker Jami said that he had been a very strong supporter of the movement against sexual harassment because he had been raped by the big name of the Pakistani media industry years back.

In a series of posts on the social networking platform Twitter, the film director broke his silence on the traumas of his past, recalling how harassers get away with rape and sexual violence.

He elaborated that he was brutally raped by a very powerful person in the media world. “A giant actually and yes I’m taller than him,” the film-maker said, apparently identifying the rapist.

The film-maker added that he could not retaliate despite having strong posture, that his system just shut down, and he let the rapist have his way because he was powerful.

Jami said that he had gone to a doctor at a famous hospital in Karachi and took medication to get over the incident, but it was difficult and he even left Pakistan for some time.

The famous director said that the rapist had also come to the funeral of his father, and despite his objections, he could not stop him. He also said that he cannot pluck up the courage to name the rapist, even today.

Jami maintained that he was writing this now because the movement against harassment was under attack and he was ready to partially vomit out his own experience.

Talking about a recent case of a college professor committing suicide on alleged claims of harassment, Jami remarked that one wrongful death did not mean all victims were fake and liars.
