Pakistani TikToker Hareem Shah manages to get wrapped up in one controversy after another. Now she’s going after Sheikh Rasheed.
While Hareem Shah had previously denied having a Twitter account when she was embroiled in the Shaheen Afridi video leak scandal, she’s been pretty active on the platform as of late.
In a recent tweet, she alleged that the State Minister for Railways, Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed, had sent her explicit and inappropriate videos. Her expose consists of a recording of a video call between her and Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed where Hareem Shah is heard calling Sheikh Rasheed out on flashing himself to the TikToker via video call and ‘acting inappropriately’.
“Ap jo video call pr nanga hu kr mjhy dikhaty thay, galat galat harkatein krtay thy. (You would flash yourself on video cards and do wrong things)”
That’s not all, she then threatened to share an explicit video of Prime Minister Imran Khan. She later deleted the tweet but screenshots are forever (forget diamonds).
ٹک ٹاک لڑکی حریم کی شیخ رشید کی وڈیو جاری کرنے اور بیہودہ وڈیو بھیجنے کے الزام کے بعد عمران خان کی وڈیو لگانے کی دھمکی۔ ٹوئٹ کرنے کے بعد ڈیلیٹ کر دی۔ pic.twitter.com/YXDqo6wucQ

This reminded people that similar threats had been posted on the ‘fake account’. Shortly after the controversy, the TikToker deleted her Twitter account.

Sheikh Rasheed’s supporters are outraged and calling for action against Hareem Shah and the other woman heard giggling in the background of the video (any guesses who that is?).
yeh sheikh rasheed ka personal matter hai. hammain kissi b soorat main un ko support karna chahye. kissi ki personal call record kar k leak karna qanoonan jurm hai in larkiyun k khilaf kanoonk karwai hooni chahye.#HareemShah

Meanwhile, some people are condemning both.
One thing is clear. The public are not supporting Hareem Shah in this controversy.
Video mangy thi rana sanaullah ki. Mil gai sheikh rasheed ki. She is qandeel baloch part 2. Ye log banaenge Madina ki ryasat? Madine ki ryasat me hareem jesi aurtain or sheikh rasheed jese mardo ko sansaar ki saza hoti he. Kn dega inhe ye saza? #HareemShah

The only thing I find funny in Hareem Shah and Sheikh Rasheed's saga is that she has saved his contact name as 'sheeda talli'. Rest, it's a serious matter and God forbid may have an ugly ending.

While some people are taking this seriously, this video has become food for memes.

These Bilawal jokes are totally uncalled for though (not to mention sexist).

There’s plenty of disappointment going around.
We have far more important issues in our country to discuss yet people are talking about Sheikh Rasheed and Hareem shah.#HareemShah
