TikTok sensation Hareem Shah’s husband, Bilal Shah, has gone missing under mysterious circumstances after his recent arrival in Karachi from London. Due to divergent reports of what happened, this incident has caused anxiety and generated a discussion between Hareem and Bilal’s family.
TikTok star Hareem Shah’s husband, Bilal Shah, reportedly went missing after his return to Karachi from London last week. Hareem, currently in London, claims that her husband was “kidnapped for unknown reasons,” while Bilal’s family suggests he is being questioned in connection with Hareem’s social media activities.
Hareem and Bilal had been in London for approximately two months, following a legal case involving Hareem and fellow TikToker Sundal Khattak. Bilal departed London for Karachi eight days ago and disappeared two days after his arrival in Karachi.
Sources in Karachi have revealed that Bilal informed investigators that Hareem was not directly managing her Twitter account, but someone else was doing so with her consent.
Hareem stressed in her statement that Bilal is not active in politics or activism and has no prior convictions while expressing anxiety over her husband’s absence. She and her family are extremely concerned and are requesting help from law enforcement.
A petition has been filed in the Sindh High Court (SHC) regarding the “illegal detention” of Bilal by alleged law enforcement personnel. Shahzadi Begum, Bilal’s mother, submitted the petition, asserting that her son was detained on August 27 in the Korangi area due to Hareem’s social media activities. She adamantly maintains that her son is innocent of any criminal activity and has asked the court to get involved and disclose details regarding any pending proceedings against him.
Hareem Shah previously faced a Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) inquiry after uploading a video claiming to have easily cleared immigration while carrying a substantial amount of foreign exchange before traveling abroad. An FIR was registered against her by the FIA in this regard.
A First Information Report (FIR) has been registered at the Defence Housing Authority (DHA) police station concerning the purported “kidnapping” of Bilal Shah. The FIR, numbered 533/23, was filed at the request of Shah’s mother, Shahzadi Begum. She reported that her son was picked up from Qayyumabad’s street no. 6 on August 27, and the unidentified individuals who took him also seized his car.
It has drawn attention to the unsolved disappearance of Bilal Shah, Hareem Shah’s husband. While Hareem alleges that her husband was kidnapped, Bilal’s family contends that he is being questioned due to Hareem’s social media activities. The Sindh High Court has been petitioned to investigate Bilal’s detention.
