‘Hired a harasser’ PCB slammed for choosing Ali Zafar for PSL 9 anthem, calls for boycott

Social media users are slamming the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for hiring Ali Zafar for the anthem of the ninth edition of Pakistan Super League.

PSL released a video on social media with the caption “Ali Zafar is set to immerse his magic to the official HBL PSL anthem 2024”, making it clear that Ali Zafar will sing the anthem for PSL season 9. The last time he sang the anthem for PSL was in 2018.

Just a few weeks ago, Ali revealed that he would not be performing the anthem for reasons he didn’t want to disclose.

Here is how social media users are reacting on it:

It should be noted that in 2018 singer Meesha Shafi made allegations against Ali Zafar for sexual harassment. Meesha stated that she was sharing her story because she feels that speaking about such issues will break the culture of silence in our society.
