After being accused of domestic violence and cheating, Mohsin Abbas Haider called for a press conference which was aired live for everyone to watch
During the press conference Mohsin was under the oath of Quran and he revealed how the couple was having problems settling in together and how they weren’t on the same page which led to numerous fights between them. He also revealed that Fatema and him were not living together for the past 5-6 months. He also denied the allegations of beating her and said that the pictures Fatema shared are from when she fell down the stairs.

Soon after the allegations were made by Fatema, she was warned by many for what’s to come:
Fatima don’t be discouraged if any of this happens in next few days
1. Leaking any private video (can be a fake one)
2. Defamation suit
3. Mohsin Abbas’s statement (rotay huway)
4. Trolls defaming and discrediting you online while setting false narrative #MohsinAbbasHaider

Cant wait to hear desi auntis discuss #MohsinAbbasHaider and justify domestic violence by comparing things with their own abusive long-term marriages and saying "bEtA sHaAdi mEin cOmpRoMiSe kRnA pArhTa hAi"
Fuck your compromise you brainwashed enabling assholes!!

People were hopeless:
Kuch nahin ho ga. Mohsin Abbas ka kuch nahin ho ga. Jaisay Ukhano ka kuch nahin ho ga. Jaisay Junaid Akram ka kuch nahin huwa. Jaisay AurAdil ka teen dafa kuch nahin huwa.

Tomorrow Mohsin Abbas Haider will come up with a fake story where his wife is either CRAZY or she had affairs and he went into depression because of her! Sadly people are going to blame her anyway… because our society always finds flaws in the woman. Wait for the fake story!

As the press conference stared making rounds on the internet, the netizens were torn between who to believe, most of them didn’t buy a single word he said:
Shameful! Instead of being repentful or at least remotely sorry, Mohsin Abbas Haider has the audacity to start defaming his spouse. Oh, so because she would tell half truth, you could beat her up? Bringing religion in your sin..sick! #MohsinAbbasHaidar #MohsinAbbas pic.twitter.com/6BqRaRsiET

People found the press conference rather funny:
Funniest part of the conference: Ilzam k beghum used woman card, so instantly plays the religion card "Quran pay hath rakhta hoon", "Mai Syed hoon, humaray ghar ki auratain, chadarain, deewarain…" LOL. #MohsinAbbasHaidar #FatimaSohail

It was a CON-ference after all:

People also noticed how he hadn’t denied the claims of beating her:
This guy didn't deny the fact that he had beaten his wife. He didn't say anything about his girlfriend. He just told the stories of his life. there is no justification of #domesticviolence . One can't even hit a woman during the war. Screw you #MohsinAbbasHaidar!
— زیب (@AliZebSaeed) July 21, 2019
Haha, zero marks for creativity in the story:
Says he's gonna tell his side and prove it with evidence. Proceeds to state its all a part of a conspiracy and my account was hacked lmao #MohsinAbbasHaidar
— Saad Khalil (@polarleviathan) July 21, 2019
Shots were fired:
Mind you, during the entire press conference, #MohsinAbbasHaidar has his hand on Quran. Sure, bro, that's what abusers and sexual harassers do. Bring religion to defend themselves when nothing works. Only this time, #MohsinAbbasHaidar brought it out as the first weapon.

Dusri shadi pe hi Islam yaad ajata hai subko:
WHAT IN THE WORLD IS THIS MOHSIN ABBAS HAIDER??!!!
Islam gives him the right to marry another woman, but where was his “ISLAM” when he was beating the shit out of his first wife.
I am absolutely DISGUSTED. ALSO… #ShameOnYou #MohsinAbbasHaidar pic.twitter.com/qOa3so9e77
— notyourordinarykafir (@mishal_abbask) July 21, 2019
#MohsinAbbasHaidar in his press conference said that it’s his religious and legal right to take a second wife. Who’s going to tell this stupid c**t that religiously and legally he needs he needs his first wife’s approval to do so?

People were mocking him for playing the religion card without even thinking that his affair was the last thing his religion would want from him:
Mohsin sahib Syed log marriage K bahir haram relationships bhe nai rakhatae. Uskae barae mein kya kaho gae?#MohsinAbbasHaidar
— Riz (@m_rizwanahmad) July 21, 2019
Han bhaee, Islami saza chahiye?
#MohsinAbbasHaidar playing the religion card calling second marriage his sharai haq and all I want to ask will he and his girlfriend take the sharai punishment for adultery?
— vimtogirl (@OhMyMascara_) July 21, 2019
People were mad at him for playing the SYED card:
So #MohsinAbbasHaidar has stooped so low, he is using SYED card, as vindication. All the time he kept beating about the bush, using personal stories to cover up his offense, telling irrelevant events and sweared on God so many times to prove his innocence? You are Exposed CUNT
— Mirza Hassan (@hiddenfriend4) July 21, 2019
— Syed M. Saad Ahsan (@saadahsan) July 21, 2019
People quickly picked up on the discrepencies in his side of the story:
Mohsin Abbas claims that the picture Fatema shared is from 2018. He doesn’t deny them.
So where’s the lie? She said he beat her during pregnancy and she was pregnant in 2018. What an asshole.
— 🤙🏽 (@SohaTazz) July 21, 2019
Not sure if biwi or maasi?
Constantly referring to your wife as your butler, her prime role being to serve you, cook for you, wash up after you. Not to mention justifying your right to 2nd marriage. Umm, ppl give a shit about you being a wife beater, not your trash bag cheating ass #MohsinAbbasHaider
— Arfa Shahid (@ArfaShahid) July 21, 2019
Some had interesting theories:
Changing your behavior in 2 weeks and your sister’s testimony to your MAMOO doesn’t stand anywhere. He thinks he became saint already. He knew this was coming beforehand so started laying ground already. stop gaining sympathies by putting hands on Quran #MohsinAbbasHaidar
— Dukhi Aatma (@SyapaaGirl) July 21, 2019
Many thought he was just beating around the bush:
WHAT the shit he's trying to say? WHY he's not coming to the point that he beat his wife or not ?
WHY he is giving us lame excuses?
And first of all WHY he's bringing Quran in that press conference?#MohsinAbbasHaidar #cancelled #EnoughIsEnough #TimesUp
— Ayesha~ (@ayeshaerfan2) July 21, 2019
Someone shared screenshots of a picture Nazish Jehangir shared with the caption ‘mine:’
Nazish Jahangir posted this few days back on her insta story! Nazish is the girl who has been accused of having in extramarital relationship with Mohsin Abbas Haider by his wife Fatema Sohail.
— Funnistan 🇵🇰 (@funnistann) July 21, 2019
A man like Mohsin Abbas Haider:
What kind of a man holds the Quran and speaks ill about his wife? What kind of a Syed would raise a hand on any women? Dude religion can not save you from this filth. Extra marital affairs are not allowed in our religion. Come up with something solid! #MohsinAbbasHaidar
— Sidra Hamid Naqvi (@_SidraHamid) July 21, 2019
Some found it unusual and unnecessary for him to bring in his taxes:
#MohsinAbbasHaidar "I'm a tax-payer of this country."
(side note: I've noticed that whenever a man is alleged of abuse/sexual harassment, he makes sure to mention that he pays/paid taxes. wonder where that comes from? 🤪🤔)
— हसीम • Haseem • حسیم 🏳️🌈 (@haseemuzzaman) July 21, 2019
Some kept a close eye on his body language:
So #MohsinAbbasHaidar has stooped so low, he is using SYED card, as vindication. WOW. All the time he kept beating about the bush, using personal stories to cover up his offense,telling irrelevant events. Body language is a great science,could see the dread on his face throughout
— Aliza Ansari (@aliza__ansari) July 21, 2019
I just saw clip of his press conference and anyone could easily see in his eyes that he's a bloody liar!!#MohsinAbbasHaidar a coward man!!!
— Bushra Siddiqui 🇵🇰❤ (@bushaquil) July 21, 2019
Expectations were broken…
I was expecting Mohsin to be creative with his excuse but that man pulled out the oldest trick in the book.
He swore on the holy book
Hold tf up!

Rightly said, meaningless:
A perpetrator of abuse will always use the most meaningless excuse 'their actions made me do this or provoke me'.There is NO excuse or other side of the story where there is physical abuse. Those who are saying this, you should be ashamed of being party to zulm!#MohsinAbbasHaidar
— A.A (@A__Usmani) July 21, 2019
All this presser reveals is that #MohsinAbbasHaidar never wanted a wife in the first place, he just wanted some house help. “Apnay kapray khud dhonay par rahay thay, khana khud pakana par raha tha.” Aadmi hai ya toddler?
— Anum R. Chagani (@Anumero_1) July 21, 2019
Some thought the presser was down right ridiculous:
Shame on u… it ia never okay to hit a woman no matter what. what a ridiculous press conference. She fell down the stairs right? Men like u are a disgrace to the society. #MohsinAbbasHaidar
— Nabila tahir (@Nabilatahir3) July 21, 2019
Many shared reasons for not believing him:
— Zeina Toric-Azad (@zeinatoricazad) July 21, 2019
But ‘i PaY tAxEs AnD bILLs:’
ok so you paid the bills.. doesn't mean you fulfilled all your responsibilities.. does not mean you didn't cheat.. and certainly does NOT justify beating her.
— Rabia Khan (@biakhann) July 21, 2019
A ton of people thought his toxic and narcissist attitude needed to go away:
Using Syed, Quran, maa behn khala card, iske aage hum kya kahen and still playing victim. True definition of a narcissit!#MohsinAbbasHaidar
— MeriChai (@merichai) July 21, 2019
People were just not convinced that the bruises Fatema had were from falling down the stairs:
I fell from stairs twice in my life. Once in England & in Islamabad at my home, call me clumsy. But I swear I didn't get a single bruise on my body. You lawyer sitting next to you should have come up with a better story. #MohsinAbbasHaidar #FatimaSohail
— Fahad lateef (@flphotodistrict) July 21, 2019
Stairs se girne se kisi k face pe aise scratches nahi aate. Nail scratches and bruises to bilkul bh nahi. You dumb head. 24 hrs me aisi ghatia story bana k laya hai #MohsinAbbasHaidar
— Dukhi Aatma (@SyapaaGirl) July 21, 2019
Can anyone explain,how these marks are sliding from stares..
And one thing more, man always slaps his wife, neither mother nor sister.. Biwi ko jageer smjhte hen. #MohsinAbbasHaidar pic.twitter.com/LjeCq3FPCV
— Nasir Mahmood (@peternasir) July 21, 2019
Many wanted to try it on him, for science, just to compare the bruises:
Domestic violence is not acceptable.. This guy says his wife got the bruises from falling down the stairs. What a twat. Let me throw him down the stairs and we willl compare the bruises. Get a life man…. Industry should boycott him.#MohsinAbbasHaidar
— sana baloch (@sun_baloch) July 21, 2019
This man says his wife got bruises from falling down the stairs. Let me throw him down the stairs and we'll compare the bruises! 🙌#MohsinAbbasHaidar
— Noor Chaudhary (@Noorayyy18) July 21, 2019
Many were unsure why he’d point out Fatema playing the woman card and then bring in the religion card:
#MohsinAbbasHaidar Men accuse woman of playing the''woman card''then turn around and play Religion card and what does''main Syed family se belong karta hoon'' mean?That you are sooooSyed that you would never beat a woman?You would and then use religion card to justify it too.
— Tashika Shah (@tashika5shah) July 21, 2019
#MohsinAbbasHaidar’s press conference is hard to watch. Using the “woman card” is speaking your truth and being bashed for it; only for the society to believe the man. His side of the story just shows his sick mindset, disgusting!
— Rasti (@Rastiii) July 21, 2019
It's very shameful to use religion card in this type of matter. After beating his wife now he is doing her character assassination. The people who are supporting him are showing a patriarchal society. it's really sorrowful #MohsinAbbasHaidar
— Fariha Almas (@Fariha_Almas) July 21, 2019
The entire press conference in a nutshell:
Mohsin’s press conference summed up:
“She fell down the stairs.”
“She wanted money”
“Oh, and yes to answer your question, I am short tempered ngl.”#MohsinAbbasHaidar
— Fatima A. J. (@fajtastic) July 21, 2019
Just heard the whole press conference and I think Mohsin needs to visit a rehab ASAP! #MohsinAbbasHaidar

Let it sink in:
— Suntay Hoo (@SuntayH) July 21, 2019
People bought up snippets from.a recent interview where Mohsin talked about having a really short and abusive temper:
— AZIIZIIA (@itstheazeez) July 20, 2019
Mard bari pyari cheez hai…
Mard bohat pyari chez ha,
Tum usy cheating krty hue pakro..wo tmhy balon sy pkr kr marega!#MohsinAbbasHaidar
— Dua Fatima (@DuaFatima33) July 21, 2019
Many changed sides:
“YAwR usNe Quran Pe HaTh rAkhA hay YaWr” ajeeb nasal ki qoum hay yeh koi. Nawaz shareef se bhi rakhwalo phir tou usne bhi sach bolna hay. #MohsinAbbasHaidar
— Rimsha Furrokh (@RimshaFarrukh) July 21, 2019
Many wanted to steer clear of passing anymore judgments now that the Holy book was involved:
People started proving Mohsin guilty just by knowing one side of the story. I still want to say that if he has beaten his wife, it cannot be justified in any situation but as he has taken oath on Quran that he hasn't; so let the court decide who is right.#MohsinAbbasHaidar
— Muhammad Farooq (@mfarooq_uet) July 21, 2019
I saw interview of mohsin Abbas had his hand on Quran in his whole interview
Putting hands on Quran is big thing todo But when someone put hands on Quran thn we need to stop our comments now Allah swt will show all truth
Let’s leave justice in Allah swt hands #MohsinAbbasHaidar
— anumsaeed (@anumsaeed1) July 21, 2019
With that being said, we believe that abuse has no other side, #TimesUp!
