Top Pakistani actress Mehwish Hayat has finally broken her silence. After Kubra Khan, Hayat has now filed a petition in court against the YouTuber Adil Raja who had allegedly ran a smear campaign against her and other actresses.
Earlier last week, he used the initials of some Pakistani actresses and accused them of giving illegal services to Army officials.
In a conversation with the media, she revealed she has gone through brutal mental agony due to these baseless claims. She further said that social media has people who run negative campaigns against people and it is sad to see people believing them without seeing any actual proof.
Moreover, Hayat expressed that respecting women is everyone’s responsibility and she expects justice from Judiciary. She also added that anyone who participated in sharing the propaganda is equally involved and should be punished as per laws.
She also took to social media to express her feelings – she wrote:
Today I went to court to send a strong message that I will not stand for these vile smear campaigns anymore. This has been going on for some time – but the events of the last few days have hit a new low. Criticise my work all you like – but no one has the right to defame my character. I am not the one to sit and let anyone use me as a pawn in their dirty political games! I am not going to rest until this is resolved. I am happy that the petition has been filed and the people behind this including all the trollers who are spreading malicious lies will be held accountable by the authorities. It is such a shame that I’ve had to go to court to protect my dignity and reputation – is this what we have become? I would like to thank all those from the industry, family, friends and above all fans who have sent me messages of support. They have provided me strength in what has been a trying time.

Prior to this when the allegations initially popped up, she wrote:
Sasti shohrat haasil karne k liye kuch logue insaaniat k darjay se bhi girjatay hain . Hope you’re enjoying your two mins of fame. Just because I am an actress doesn’t mean my name can be dragged through the mud. Shame on you for spreading baseless allegations and insinuations about someone you know nothing about & even bigger shame on people who believe this bullshit. This just shows the sickness of our society that laps up this gutter journalism without any thought. But this stops & it stops now!I won’t allow anyone to defame my name.
