Pakistani star cricketer Imam-ul-Haq has landed in hot water after threads of WhatsApp messages allegedly sent by him to multiple girls, were leaked on social media.
The #MeToo controversy started on Tuesday evening when the girls accused the star batsman of cheating and exploitation. A Twitter user leaked the screen shots of alleged chats claiming "So apparently Mr @ImamUlHaq12 was dating 7 to 8 (that we know of) women and kept using them and manipulating them. He kept telling them the whole time how he's single".
The user also leaked some videos in which the batsman had some intimate chats with one of the girls. However, the Twitter handle from which the alleged chats were leaked has since been deleted but screenshots of the text messages are being circulated on social media.
Netizens have been divided on the scandal, with some questioning the cricketer’s conduct.
At the time of writing the story, the Twitter handle from which the screenshots of the cricketer’s chats were leaked had ceased to exist.
“So apparently Mr. @ImamUlHaq12 was dating 7 to 8 (that we know of) women and kept using them and manipulating them. He kept telling them the whole time how he’s single. Some of the screenshots attached from girl 1,” a Twitter user wrote attaching screenshots of the cricketer’s alleged chat.
“Since when dating or not marrying someone you promised became a part of #Metoo. I can’t see #Imamulhaq harassing or asking for pictures. Stop misusing this to defame someone when its consensual. It’ll lose worth & actual victim won’t get help! How this come under #metoo,” another Twitter user wrote in Imam’s defence.
Imam had also scored a century against Bangladesh in the World Cup 2019, in which Pakistan failed to advance to the semi-finals.
