Pakistan opener Imam-ul-Haq lands in MeToo, accused of having multiple affairs
Pakistani cricketer Imam-ul-Haq, who opened the innings for the Men in Green in the recently-concluded ICC World Cup 2019, has landed in a controversy after a Twitter user accused him of cheating and having affairs with multiple girls.
The user leaked his WhatsApp chats with several girls alleging that the cricketer had exploited them.
The incident seems to have divided the netizens with some questioning the cricketer’s conduct while others criticising the girls.
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.
