High Court Rejects Appeal of Meesha Shafi Harassment Case Against Ali Zafar

By Arooj Ahmed — Published on 14/10/2019

Meesha Shafi is a Pakistani model and singer. On 4th April 2018, Meesha Shafi extricated a statement of sexual harassment opposing Ali Zafar under the #metoo movement. Ali Zafar is a famous Pakistani singer, actor, songwriter, painter, and producer. He has also worked in Bollywood movies. He gained fame by his single “Channo” song. He received five Lux Style Awards and got nominated in a FilmFare Awards. This statement of harassment by Meesha Shafi against Ali Zafar stirred a storm all over the social media. She did not reveal any major detail of this incident. To this, many celebrities supported Ali Zafar and gone against her and some supported her. After seeing Meesha Shafi’s allegations, Ali Zafar tweeted to take this matter to the court. Ali Zafar’s co-star actress in “Teefa In Trouble” came out in the defense of her fellow actor and says she never got that kind of ‘vibe’ from him anytime during the shoot of the movie as she was working with him and let’s not judge anyone until the truth comes out.


After one year of this case and appearance in court on 11th October 2019, the Lahore High Court abandoned Meesha Shafi’s appeal challenging redundancy of her remonstrance as opposed to Ali Zafar. The untimely redundancy of Ms. Shafi had been refused by Punjab ombudsman for protection against harassment of women at the workplace. This was the third time that the case of Ms. Shafi has been rejected by the High court against Ali Zafar. Justice Shahid Kareem restrained an adjudication after hearing the concluding quarrel by the advocates of both Ms. Shafi and Zafar.

The retrial was rejected by the ombudsperson on technical grounds that Meesha Shafi and Ali Zafar did not have an employer-employee relationship, therefore, this case couldn’t be perceived in this convention. Later on, she appealed this verdict to Punjab governor, where her team considered the adroit authority to analyze any decision made by the ombudsman. Though Lahore High Court restrained its verdict in the case filed by Shafi, Advocate Hira Jilani argued that the ombudsman dismissed this petition based on technical ground. Thus, the appeal was rejected for not being on the bestowed forum.


Ali Zafar also thanks all of his fans for all the love and support they had shown throughout and being there for him, supporting him. Further, he says that fake allegations by vacillators can destroy lives and careers and weaken genuine victims.
