Pakistani TikTok sensation Hareem Shah has made a distressing claim, asserting that her husband, Bilal, was forcibly taken by unidentified individuals dressed in plain clothes.
In a video message she shared, Hareem recounted the harrowing experience, revealing that the incident occurred while her husband was visiting Pakistan, even though both of them primarily reside in London.
Despite reporting the abduction to the local police station within their jurisdiction, Hareem Shah expressed deep concern that a week has passed without any discernible progress in the case.
She alluded to suspicions that external influences might be exerting undue pressure on the police, thereby hindering the investigative process.
In a bid for justice, Hareem Shah revealed that they had resorted to filing a formal petition in court, as legal channels seemed unresponsive. She emphatically asserted her husband’s innocence, stressing that Bilal had no affiliations with any political groups and maintained a clean record.
She framed the alleged kidnapping as a troubling affront to the rule of law in Pakistan.
میرے شوہر بلال کو سادہ کپڑوں میں ملبوس افراد اغواہ کرکے لئے گئے ہیں۔ قانون نافذ کرنیوالے اداروں سے درخواست کرتی ہوں میرے شوہر کا پتہ کروائیں۔ بلال کا کسی سیاسی جماعت سے کوئی تعلق نہیں۔ pic.twitter.com/lYebJ2clx6
