Boys will no longer be boys, they will be held accountable for their actions.
Designer Fahad Hussayn has re-released his fashion campaign, ‘Guddi Wang’ and has removed Mohsin Abbas Haider from it to show solidarity with survivors of domestic violence. The decision comes after the actor was accused of domestic abuse by his wife, Fatema Sohail.
“This project was very close to my heart. The video even features my bhabis, nieces and nephews in the bus with Mohsin Abbas Haider and Sadaf Kanwal. I have personally dealt with abuse in my life. I am strongly against it and it went against my values for my work to be associated with a man who is allegedly an abuser. Also, I sell weddings and having him in the video was even damaging to the brand.”
The video also originally included Sadaf Kanwal although now her scenes have also been deleted from the reel in order to maintain continuity.
Last week, Fatema came forward to accuse the actor of cheating, beating her up, even while she was 3 months pregnant and taking Rs. 5 million from her which he has not given back yet.
An FIR was registered against Mohsin under Section 406 (criminal breach of trust) and Section 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Pakistan Penal Code and included charges of hurling life threats on the complainant; he is currently out on anticipatory bail and the next court hearing is scheduled for 5 August.
