Renowned Pakistani filmmaker Jami has come forward to reveal that he was also a victim of a sex crime. In a series of posts on twitter, Jami revealed that he was raped by a dominant media tycoon 13 years ago.

Jami wrote that he also told some of his close friends but no one took the incident seriously.


The filmmaker said he spent six months in a hospital in Karachi for therapy and he also went abroad to get over the incident.

Talking about a recent case of a college professor committing suicide on alleged claims of harassment, Jami wrote that one wrongful death did not mean all victims were fake and liars.

The director even said that he knew the consequences of his revelations but it was very important for him to reveal his story since the legitimacy of the movement was being questioned.
