Meesha Shafi takes Ali Zafar defamation case to Supreme Court

Meesha Shafi takes Ali Zafar defamation case to Supreme Court

Singer Meesha Shafi has challenged in the Supreme Court a Lahore High Court order in the defamation case filed against her by fellow singer Ali Zafar.

The Lahore High Court had earlier ordered that the case be wrapped up by April 15 instead of granting Shafi extra time for her lawyers to cross-examine the witnesses in the case.

She argued that the trial court didn’t allow them to cross-examine the witnesses and that cross-examining them is their legal right.

On Wednesday, a local court in Lahore imposed a fine of Rs10,000 on Shafi after her  lawyer failed to attend a hearing in the defamation case.

Zafar filed a defamation suit against Shafi after she accused him of sexual harassment. He denied the allegations and wants her to pay restitution for the damage to his reputation and leveling false allegations against him.

In April 2018, Shafi took to Twitter to accuse Zafar of physically harassing her on ‘more than one occasion.’ “This happened to me despite the fact that I am an empowered, accomplished woman who is known for speaking her mind,” she said.

    Men should respect women and stop if a woman say NO.
    Women should be aware of their surroundings and try not to flirt Infront of such men.
    One more thing weather it’s a man or woman, these popular people crave publicity.
    So they can go to any lengths to achieve this.
    Only Allah know what is in anyone’s heart.
    I’m not judging either of them because I don’t personally know them.

    She should stop running after it. She played a gamble for publicity that backfired and she is still standing where she was before the case.

    One of the most famous singer/actresses in the country has no need for publicity. Proving sexual harassment in a court of law is very tough under any circumstances and the reactions in favor of the alleged harasser and also the courts decision to dismiss the case on a mere technicality that had nothing to do with harassment just exposes the backward mindset of our society.

    Ali zafar should have been banned from all forms of media until an independent investigation was launched and concluded. Instead there has been not one investigation into this matter by any body and people still are jumping on one bandwagon or another. Sickening.
