Jemima Goldsmith established the Jemima Khan Afghan Refugee Appeal in Peshawar to assist Afghan refugees. In addition, she established a fashion label in Pakistan that employed poor women. Jemima Khan has become a household name in Pakistan as a result of her charitable work and contributions. She has advocated for women’s rights numerous times. Needless to say, she has proved time and time again that she is a strong woman who never shies away from a confrontation.

This time, she did not hold back in revealing that she had been harassed for two years by an online taxi driver. Jojo Moyes, a British journalist and author, started the conversation by tweeting about the lingering fear of harassment yesterday.

“I’m not sure any man truly understands how we absorb our fear from such an early age. I carried my keys through my fingers from the age of 14. I still dress from the shoes up, mentally calculating whether I might need to run. ”

Goldsmith responded quickly, sharing her personal experience. She agreed with Jojo and added that the people who are fortunate enough to be able to afford an Uber or cab when they are too afraid to walk, that isn’t always safe either. She inquired about how many times Jojo has felt threatened by a male driver and revealed that she had a two-year stalker in the form of a cab driver.

“So many times. And I’m so sorry that happened to you. When I was young my mother would insist I used a firm called Ladycabs. Wish they still existed! x”, Moyes responded. Jemima enthusiastically concurred, “Yes! Uber should have a lady driver service.”

Reportedly, this happened when she booked a taxi in June 2016, Mahmood, a black cab driver who also worked for the Hailo app, harvested her phone number. Ms Khan, the late billionaire tycoon Sir James Goldsmith’s daughter, repeatedly blocked his phone number, but he switched it 18 times. She did not report him to the police because she was afraid he would retaliate if he lost his job or was arrested, according to the court.

He later claimed that he was a huge fan of Ms Khan because she was married to Pakistani cricketer Imran Khan, who he considered to be his “hero.” Mahmood admitted harassment between June last year and July 2017, which carries a maximum sentence of six months in prison, at Isleworth Crown Court today.
