Comedian Junaid Akram vehemently denies sexual harassment allegations
It all started when the acclaimed TV host Rabia Anum gave a hint about Akram’s alleged sexual misconduct without naming him in a tweet. Soon after her Twitter thread, many users identified the described harasser as Akram claiming that his conduct has been known to be polluted among girls for a long time.
While Junaid Akram reacted to the accusations while mentioning it on social media, He denied all claims of sexual harassment against him. Akram maintained that he has not harassed anyone and all such claims are false. “I am currently consulting my legal team to take action within the parameters of the law, against all those who have made or furthered these allegations,” he said.
In relation to this, I have already met my legal team, and the wheels have already been set in motion to bring to book those who are trying to hurt me and people associated with me. God bless.— Puffin Man (@junaidakram83) October 11, 2018
Akram went on to say, “My marital status is public information. I have spoken about it in my Facebook and YouTube videos.”
Meanwhile, news anchor Rana Anum had also tweeted that “several young girls are speaking out against the sexual harassment attempts by a known social media guy and comedian,” while several people on Twitter pointed their fingers at the comedian.
Last time I spoke up against Junaid Akram on Twitter based on a friend’s experience, women were on the verge of burning me alive while trying to defend him. Toxic toxic toxic https://t.co/7l2ZEedCgG— Ariba Shahid (@AribaShahid) October 9, 2018
