NEWS DESK: Activist Muniba Mazari’s former husband recently filed a case against her for “blaming and bashing him for all her afflictions”. The activist has finally spoken out, saying that she “left him” and that she’s “glad” she did.

Here’s what she said while replying to tweets on the issue:

Khurram Shahzad, a former fighter pilot of the Pakistan Air Force, has filed a suit against Mazari in the court of additional district and sessions judge Muhammad Adnan for her “libelous statements”.

According to the petitioner, despite all his earnest efforts, the defendant started activities which he could not allow her. Shahzad says Mazari started visiting foreigners in diplomatic enclaves and embassies with her brothers, whom the plaintiff had given shelter in service accommodation. Similarly, she developed an interest in modeling, which was against moral, religious and social values and against the customs of Shahzad’s family, he argues.

“Being an esteemed officer of the defence forces, the plaintiff could not allow the defendant to continue such practices and eventually tried to stop her,” he said. “The defendant instead of stopping, with her free will and choice left the house of plaintiff in September 2014 along with the minor adopted son.”

He said that on March 6, 2015, she filed a suit for dissolution of marriage on the basis of Khulla. The plaintiff did not want to dissolve the marriage but she obtained Khulla from the court of Humaira Afzal of Islamabad and the suit was decree on June 12, 2015.

Nowadays, he said, the defendant has become a popular artist and, during her media shows on different forums, she talked wrongly about him and defamed him.

According to Shahzad, her contradictory statements are concealing the facts, are misleading the public at large and have been very painful for him as well as his family. He has prayed that the court decree for the recovery of damages of Rs10,000,000 on account of libelous and baseless statements of the defendant against the plaintiff in his favor.

“May God guide them”

Meanwhile, Mazari, the Goodwill Ambassador for UN Women in Pakistan, has expressed her version in some tweets, saying that she has faced such situations “many times before”. She adds that this time again, she will keep the matter “in the court”.
