Pakistani filmmaker Jami on Sunday left everyone shocked with a thread of tweets.
Jami had been a very strong supporter of the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment because he had been raped by a big name of the Pakistani media industry years back.
The Me Too movement (or #MeToo movement) is a movement against sexual harassment and sexual assault. The movement began to spread in October 2017 as a hashtag on social media in an attempt to demonstrate the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment.
Jami, in a series of tweet revealed that why he is a supporter of the #MeToo movement. He told publicly on Twitter that he was being raped by a media tycoon, whose name he still can not reveal.
“Why im so strongly supporting #metoo ? cuz i know exactly how it happens now, inside a room then outside courts inside courts and how a survivor hides confides cuz i was brutally raped by a very powerful person in our media world. A Giant actually. and yes im taller than him but”
“I froze not sure why yesss it really happens and happened to me. Till this day 13 years ve passed i curse myself why i didnt take his eyes out but i was so close to this guy a friend, doing his mega shoots for his mega high end books and museum launches etc may be thats why my”
“system shut down… or i couldnt believe WTF is going on. I told my few close friends but no one took it seriously. I told them so many times with the name of this tycoon but as if im a joker or something. YES high end friends top end friends in media didnt do anything. I spent 6”

“own home telling Mother who was also busy with her pain to run out and stop him from coming in. Fiasco fucking cant even cry for my papa. Till this day i dont ve the courage to come out and name him. Its super tough. I know my own buddies will laugh and joke or whatever shit”
“we all desi do. Im writing this now cuz #metoo is under attack and im ready to partially vomit out my own experience. Its all true what the victims says and how they say or hide. Its all an exact same pattern a victim goes thru like clock work as if DNA has a SOS gene to shut up”
“or they all will rip u apart in the society. So one wrongful death doesnt mean all victims r fake and liars. Im pissed that they r attacking the movement and victms so im coming here today after 13 or so years to say 99.99% survivors r telling the truth always. No doubt ever!”
“I never use to fight or this angry on social media or absurd in any way but after the incident i ve no clue how to shut up now for the victims and survivors. My personality changed in few months and its very erratic the way i talk but i promised myself i will stand for all #metoo “
“i know its a suicide what im writing right now but this is important before they harm the movement. I know now they all will attack me also, oh BC why u stayed quiet till now? Oh maan ka L…tuu mard hai ya kunjri? rape kur deita na usska pulut kur etc all attacks but its time.”
