In a Twitter thread on Monday, Rizvi claimed that after she ‘put everything in writing‘ following her resignation from her job at Soch, Arafat Mazhar ‘flew in for damage control’ to help save the organization’s reputation.

She further proceeds to talk about how she was manipulated by his ‘legal jargon’ as he continued to invalidate her experiences even when there were multiple witnesses to support her claim.

Expanding on the issue she says,’ The person who called me a damsel in distress? You protected her. She was given a management position despite gaslighting me and taking the side of the harasser. Despite making fatphobic, sexist, classist comments on the regular‘ and ‘You told me you would ‘shut me down’ and not allow me to ‘weaponize’ your words?‘. Rizvi concluded the thread by calling Mazhar out for still associating with the organization.
