LAHORE-Pakistani film maker and Oscar winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy recently became a topic of much controversy since after she tweeted about an incident of ‘harassment’ that happened with her sister following a check-up with an Aga Khan University doctor who sent her Facebook request.

Earlier in her tweets on October 23, she said, “There are zero boundaries in Pakistan. Last night my sister went to AKU emergency and the doctor who tended to her tried to add her on Facebook. I don’t quite understand how doctor tending to emergency patients thinks it’s ok to take a female patient info and add her on FB. Unfortunately the doctor messed with the wrong women in the wrong family and I will definitely report him. Harassment has 2 stop”

As a result, not only the doctor was being fired from the hospital but a huge controversy stirred around social media where people alleged that the Oscar-winner is referring to her familial connections as she wrote ‘the doctor messed with the wrong women in the wrong family.”

Finally, Chinoy broke the silence and made a statement on her Twitter to clarify the ‘misconception’ from her side.

Before clarifying anything, she admitted that her words were “poorly chosen” in the heat of emotions at that time and she mentioned her regret about it.

She said that she was only trying to highlight the issue of harassment of women and the abuse of a doctor-patient relationship. She broke the silence on the matter with a statement posted on twitter.
