Famous actor and singer Mohsin Abbas Haider was allegedly accused of domestic violence and cheating by his wife, Fatima Sohail.
Fatima caught Mohsin cheating on her in 2018 with another woman and was brutally beaten when she confronted him. Moreover, she was pregnant at that time and feared for her unborn child’s safety while withstanding the constant domestic abuse.
Many celebrities are supporting Fatima Sohail after she decided to open up about Mohsin Haider Abbas violence. Gohar Rasheed and Dua Malik claimed that they have witnessed it themselves.
Many different celebrities stood up against domestic violence and said Haider should be boycotted.
Not only celebrities, senator Sherry Rehman, Minister of Human Rights Shireen Mazari and Lawyer and activist Nighat Dad stood in favor of Fatima.
In a press conference held in Lahore on 21st July, Mohsin Haider Abbas denied all the accusations.
“Whatever she said, is not true, adding that I never touched her. “
Referring to the pictures posted by Sohail on her social media accounts, he said, “The pictures she shared were of 2018, when she fell down the stairs”. He remarked that they were the same pictures she had sent him last year when he was traveling.
Mohsin Abbas Haider went on to say that Fatima Sohail is “trying to play the woman card”. However, he accepted: “It is true that I have had anger issues in the past but I’m a changed man.”
When their marriage wasn’t working, he said he decided to marry to someone else. He remarked that Sohail didn’t take his decision very well.
“When I talked to Fatima about my second marriage, she said she wouldn’t let that happen,” he added. Haider added that Sohail threatened to kill herself and demanded that he transfer his property onto her name.
Even after Mohsin Abbas Haider tried proving his innocence, people are still in favor of his wife.
