Meesha Shafi Case

LAHORE: Sources privy to NPTV have been intimated that singer Meesha Shafi has been ordered to come up with her response by 25th of September pertaining to the defamation suit filed by singer-cum-actor Ali Zafar, who was being accused of harassing her.

In the proceedings of a district and sessions court, Meesha’s legal counsel Muhammad Saqib Jilani presented his power-of-attorney to the court and pleaded the court for an extension for submitting reply.

Accepting the request, the judge adjourned the hearing till September 25. It is pertinent to mention here that the first hearing vis-á-vis Meesha/Ali high profile case was held on June 25, 2018, wherein Meesha was ordered to come up with her response pertaining the defamation allegations.

Nevertheless, she did not show up in court nor did she present her reply on August 13. Readers may recall how Shafi accused Ali of abusing her on multiple occasions some months back. Whereas, on the other hand, Ali, while categorically denying the claims, lodged a defamation suit asking for  Rs1 billion and apology for marring his reputation in a district court against Shafi on June 23.

The official statement reads, “That the tweet dated 19.04.2018 and the Instep Article dated 21.04.2018 are false, slanderous, and defamatory statements, stand published and originate from the defendant, therefore, have caused tremendous injury to the Plaintiff’s reputation, goodwill, livelihood; being attempts to tarnish the good image of the plaintiff.”

“As the defamatory statements are patently false, it can only be concluded that this malicious campaign has been launched against the plaintiff as part of a motivated conspiracy to tarnish the plaintiff’s good image through making false accusations.”

“The defendant has associated herself with the global #MeToo movement, with one of the launchers of the #MeToo movement ‘Rose McGowan’ labeling the defendant as ‘a heroine for our times’.”
