"They also called and threatened me"
Pakistani TikTok star Hareem Shah reportedly filed an FIR against her close friend for attempted murder.
The case was allegedly registered on March 22, 2021, at Golra Sharif Police Station in Islamabad.
It was reported that the case was filed against Ayesha Naz, who allegedly physically assaulted the TikTok star and attempted to murder her.
According to the FIR, the incident took place in Karachi while Hareem was on a professional trip.
Hareem reportedly said that she was in Karachi, filming a drama when Ayesha and her accomplice Bahadur Sher entered her hotel room and kidnapped her.
The pair then allegedly tortured her at Bahadur’s apartment.
She also claimed that she received threatening phone calls prior to the incident.
According to the complaint, the pair allegedly attempted to murder Hareem Shah due to personal reasons.
In the FIR, Hareem said:
“I, resident of E-11 (III) Omni Arcade, came to Islamabad from Karachi for shooting on March 16 and two people, Ayesha Naz and Bahadur Sher Afridi, forcefully entered my flat on March 18 (Thursday) and started assaulting me.
“They also called and threatened me over the phone.”
No arrests have been made as of yet.
While reports are circulating that Hareem filed an attempted murder case against her friend, the TikToker has not said anything about it.
In a video message, Hareem said she was busy filming a drama and that she was doing completely fine.
As a result, it is unclear whether an attempt on her life took place or not.
Hareem Shah has a huge following on TikTok and is known for being embroiled in controversy.
Previously, she was allegedly seen on video slapping controversial cleric Mufti Abdul Qavi after he reportedly said something “vulgar” to her.
In the video, Qavi was seen sitting on a bed on his phone.
Meanwhile, a woman in red approached him and slapped him across the face.
Reportedly, it was Hareem who slapped the cleric and she said that she hit him after becoming annoyed by inappropriate comments made by Qavi to her and her friend.
“He spoke salaciously and we have recorded the whole conversation.”
Hareem went on to say: “I have no regrets. If men like him are punished, there will not be rapes in Pakistan.”
Despite the accusations, Qavi denied them.
He said that he and Hareem had been invited to shoot for a TV programme in Karachi when the incident occurred.
Qavi claimed that Hareem slapped him while another woman filmed the incident. He said:
“I was using my mobile phone in the hotel room when she [Shah] suddenly came into the room and slapped me. She then left.”
Hareem later said it was actually her cousin who slapped Qavi while she filmed the incident.
She added that she would continue to expose hypocrites and those who disguise themselves as respectful people.
Hareem stated that Qavi should have been “sensible”.
She added: “When Mufti Qavi physically harassed me, he hit me with shoes.”
