Salar Shamas, a musician from Lahore, has been accused of sexual harassment on social media, which he has categorically denied.

Salar Shamas is a Lahore-based musician and a Beaconhouse National University Lahore graduate. Shamas, a songwriter, producer, filmmaker, and entrepreneur, rose to prominence in Pakistan after releasing the song “Ayyy Teray Bin” on SoundCloud.

He is recognized for his record company Shamas-Kaari and for writing Urdu songs in western music genres.

Salar is accused of sexually harassing women and threatening them with his outreach and influential brother, according to a social media platform called ‘Wall of Shame pk‘ on Instagram.

Screen recordings of his discussions with three different victims, one of them a minor, were also attached in the account’s post.

A teen girl, 16, has spoken out about being sexually assaulted at the farmhouse of the rising musician in Lahore.

The 16-year-old girl claimed that Salar allegedly assaulted the 16-year-old girl while drunk and then threatened her with his powerful background.

Salar has refuted the claims against him and responded to the harassment against himself in a live stream, despite the screenshot with his name. He also claimed the screenshots were bogus.

Salar also threatened to take legal action against the account’s admin.
