Meesha Shafi has asked the organizers of HUM Style Awards to remove her name from the category of the best song. Meesha got nominated for her song “Mein”.
But from past few days, LSA was disparaged from multiple celebrites for nominating denounce sexual harasser this year.The model Emaan Suleman led from the front and gave up on her LSA award nomination.
And for this reason, Meesha asks the LSA’s for removing her nomination.
Meesha said that:
“First and foremost I want to thank Eman Suleman. What she, Generation and Saima Bargfrede have said and done is what I consider my award “
She further said that:
“In a perfect world, I would love to see women retain their space in the industry while being safe, so that the cost of speaking up is minimized, or even done away with altogether. A cost which is all too high at present,” “Our boycotts should not overshadow our achievements. With brave women like these, I feel optimistic about getting there one day.”
She wrote about her song that:
“Mein is a song about finding our true self. Being aligned with a higher purpose. Being our own hero and being enough. I wrote it at a particularly difficult time in my life. When I needed to be all those things”
She concluded by giving up on her nomination saying that:
“Mein stands nominated for the best song at the Lux Style Awards 2019. The irony is not lost on me given the current circumstances and I would kindly request that my name and work be removed from the list of nominees,”
