Actress Somy Ali Makes A Shocking Statement, “I Was Sexually Abused When I Was 5, 9 And Again At 14 Years”
Somy Ali is a popular Pakistani girl who was really accomplished actress during the 90s. She was a known name in the acting universe but soon quit the glamour world. She joined social work and started her running her own NGO named ‘No More Tears’. The NGO works on helping rape victims and sexual abuse child victims. She has helped numerous people through her NGO. In her recent interview, the actress revealed that the inspiration to start the NGO came to her because of her own personal experiences in her childhood. She made many revelations while talking to Peeping Moon and even revealed that she was a Sexual abuse victim when she was just five years old.
In a recent interview with Peeping Moon, Somy confesses it took her long to open up about it but always felt being a hypocrite for not speaking for herself after running this non profitable organisation for 14 long years. She reveals, “The first time I was sexually abused in Pakistan, I was 5 years old. There were 3 incidents in the servant’s quarters. I told my mum and dad, actions were taken. But what my parents told me is that, “Beta yeh kisiko batana nahi.” In my head, I lived with that for years. I thought, “Did I do something wrong? Why was I told by my parents?” Pakistan and Indian cultures are very image-based. They were protecting me but I didn’t understand it. Again there was an incident at 9, then again at 14.”
The actress added, “Three years ago, I started speaking out. Even though I was running this non-profit organisation for 14 years, I found myself hypocritic for not being able to speak up.”
