Sexual harassment is among one of the most serious accusations that one can hurl when it comes to character-assasination. Concerning yesterday's dramatic events with the claims that (now) former PTI MNA Ayesha Gulalai expressed against PTI chairman Imran Khan and other members of the party of sexual harassment, sexism and corruption within the party, was not only uncalled for but seemed scripted and baseless. Gulalai not only claimed to be victim of receiving inappropriate text messages from the chairman in 2013, but in the mix also subtly mocked Khan's Southern Punjabi (Niazi) lineage, going as far as labelling him a 'Fake Pathan' and used other such derogatory labels. Why is no one paying attention to this soft nationalist rhetoric but is quick to believe these details when Gulalai herself remained unable to provide proof? Keeping it objective, I believe the PTI party provides the greatest amount of respect to women, more so than any other party. Gulalai labelling other PTI workers as 'small-minded' is not only unjustified but grossly disrespectful. A number of highly qualified females are working in the PTI, with one being member of the National Assembly and chief whip of the PTI, another serving as Punjab secretary general and nominated for the elections in Lahore. These women have all come out against Gulalai's baseless accusations and demanded that if there were truth to them, she should file a case and provide proof.. which she refuses to do. Leaving/joining a party is one's absolute right but to do so in this manner is uncouth and very unlady-like. These developments reek of a likely PMLN smear campaign attempt, with bribery being their favourite tactic. Former ladies who have also left PTI before also refuted these claims by Gulalai. It is shameful that people stoop so low to hide the truth and villify someone in a clear political gimmick. I as a woman am disappointed in Ayesha Gulalai as this is one of the reasons why society is not taking sexual harassment seriously. This woman is just angry that she was demanding an NA-1 seat, and the decision does not appear to go in her favour.
