Well, looks like Patari is in serious trouble now.

The musical startup has been making headlines for quite some days now, for all the wrong reasons. First,
their founder was embroiled in a sexual harassment claim, then the core team resigned and the investor came in to rescue the startup as the interim CEO.

To add fuel to the fire, just yesterday, someone working at Patari shared screenshots of conversation which clearly indicated that Ali Zafar allegedly is trying to manipulate the music streaming platform to discount the efforts of Meesha Shafi’s brother, Faris Shafi’s work. It must be noted here that Ali Zafar and Meesha Shafi are fighting a legal battle on claims of Meesha that Ali sexually harassed her on multiple occasions. Ali Zafar had allegedly asked to change the placement of Faris Shafi’s song from Patari’s top new releases to which Patari easily obliged.

Pakistanis took no time to act outrageously on Twitter. Here are some of the tweets that show how pissed they really felt at this incident. In fact, a hastag ‘#deletePatari’ picked up very soon too.
