Dunk: A Mystery of Harassment

Dunk is a Pakistani drama serial, it deals with the false allegations of harassment. Professor Humayun played by Nauman Ejaz was accused of harassment by his female student Amal (Sana Javed).Amal fiance and cousins Haider(Bilal Abbas) stands by her side and ask her to seek justice. Protests ensue all over the campus while media got involved and asked for professor’s dismissal. Professor Humayun denies all the allegation’s. The life of Humayun became miserable due to harassment allegations.

After Professor’s death Haider came to know about the truth that Amal made fake allegations of sexual harassment . He refused to marry her but kept her secret to maintain the overall dignity of the family. After that Amal got married to Safeer (brother of Haider) and got everyone by her side. She later, accused Haider of attempting to rape her. This time she again won the favour of a lot of people just because she was a woman and everyone believed her and accused haider but haider's mother and wife Minal supported him and later the wife of Professor hamuyon also supported him

Haider files a case. Hader’s lawyer proves in front of the court lies spoken by Amal with solid proof and evidence.

Many believed it was an attempt to undermine the #MeToo movement’s campaign against breaking the silence about sexual harassment but the story makers was clear that it was based on true incidents.

Critically, there was no need to tell a story regarding fake harassment because it could shed doubt on the claims of victims of actual harassment. But if we look outside the window some people are at the edge of their career and life because they are falsely accused. Speaking for their rights does not mean that we are denying the fact that 95 percent of the filed cases are true but what about those 5 per cent of people who suffer because of male misogynists or other reasons.
