Jamshed Mehmood - Jami

In a series of shocking Tweets, Pakistani filmmaker Jamshed Mehmood, better known as Jami, has revealed that a ‘giant’ of the media world brutally raped him some 13 years ago.

The filmmaker went into the details of why he supports the #MeToo movement in a Tweet that soon turned into a long thread the horrific account of his personal experience.

Jami shared how his friends made fun of him when he told them about being sexually assaulted by this powerful person. Without naming the powerful person, Jami says he curses himself to this day why he didn’t ‘take his eyes out’.

He further went into how sexual harassment happens and how the power gets away with it. He further added that the #MeToo movement is under attack and despite the consequences, he has decided to speak about it.

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.

Twtter: jamiazaad

Hours after Jami first posted the shocking news on social networking website Twitter, thousands of people came forward in support of the filmmaker. Some even suggested Jami reveal the name of his rapist so he could be given brought to justice.

Jami and #MeToo started trending in Pakistan and many of Twitter seemed unhappy about how some media outlets handled the news.

A number of Pakistani media outlets had first published the news of Jami’s rape case, however, they were later removed without any explanation.
