The filmmaker, Jamshed Mehmood, a.k.a Jami’s #MeToo story shook the collective Pakistani conscious to the core would be an understatement.

In a society where it is hard enough for a survivor to call out an average gali ka lafanga (street loafer), it is unthinkable for a man to not merely reveal that he was raped but also take-on a rapist who, it is safe to assume, hails from the ranks of Pakistan’s super elites.
While recounting the harrowing account of his rape 13 years ago, Jami did not explicitly name the culprit. However he gave away enough clues for people to start putting two and two together.
Clue #1: Media giant
Clues #2 & # 3: Book and Museum launches
Interestingly, while all the leading mainstream media establishments in the country initially put out Jami’s story as breaking news, by afternoon most of them began receding.

A number of publications first took down Jami’s #MeToo story from their websites and social media platforms and then a while later re-posted a toned down version in which all the three major clues, i.e. “media giant,” and references to the rapist’s book and museum launches were either taken out from the headings and narrative or considerably downplayed.
Given the limited length of our collective attention span, it is likely that Jami’s #MeToo story would have died down on its own had the mainstream media establishments not chosen to adopt such inexplicably absurd behaviour – and that too simultaneously.
It was perhaps this knee jerk reaction by the print and electronic media fraternity that made people curious more than ever about the identity of Jami’s assailant.
In what can only be described as deeply shocking, Pakistani Twitter is alleging Dawn CEO, Hameed Haroon to be Jami’s rapist.
While no one certainly seems to have any proof to substantiate this allegation, nevertheless, there are many who feel the clues about his rapist in Jami’s tweets lead to Hameed Haroon.

If Jami is bold and states that he was raped, then he should take the name of the person
he is just using himself now to play with guessing game, which is not ethical
take the name and come out and be quiet
don't play media talk show game

Pakistan media is composed of blackmailers and traitors. Majority of media house owners are corrupt to the core and established the media houses to guard their vested interests.

Because he has to prove it in court by concrete evidence which he can't. So he will loose case of defamation but he wanted to tell truth to world. So this was safe and easy to give all the signs that it looks like a duck, swims like duck and quacks like a duck, now let people assume.. Obviously it's duck.
Same person who accused pak army in hard talk
