Pakistani opening batsman Imam ul Haq was caught in a fiery scandal on Wednesday after screenshots of an alleged WhatsApp conversation between the opening batsman and a few women started doing the rounds on social media.
A Twitter user exposed the screenshots of the chat. Imam, Pakistan’s left-handed opening batsman who has scored multiple centuries in just 36 ODIs.
Soon after the alleged conversation between Imam and the women were shared on social media, #MeToo and #ImamulHaq started trending on Twitter.
The left-handed batsman has so far not replied to the controversy and has kept quiet. A debate began on Twitter in which people were not sure whether the Imam ul Haq episode qualified under the #MeToo umbrella or not.
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?😐😐 pic.twitter.com/JLtDU77rGJ

Imam should be held accountable for cheating and emotional manipulation NOT harassment- clear your concepts and don’t ruin the meaning of #metoo for your personal motives. Cheating is disgusting but so is violating ones privacy and “CONSENSUAL SEXTING IS NOT HARASSMENT”#Imamulhaq
