Jamshed Mahmood, popularly known as Jami, has named Dawn CEO Hameed Haroon as the alleged rapist who raped the filmmaker 13 years ago. Almost 3 months ago, Jami stated that a powerful ‘media tycoon’ had sexually abused him. The popular director, made the accusation in a tweet from a new Twitter account after his previous account got hacked.
In response, Haroon on Monday issued a statement categorically rejecting the rape accusations. “The story is simply untrue and intentionally fabricated at the instance of those who wish to silence me and through me, to compel the newspaper that I represent to support their repressive narrative,” said Haroon, adding that he will initiate legal action.
