New Delhi:

The sexual harassment case against Ali Zafar by singer-actor Meesha Shafi last April has been dismissed by the Lahore High Court. In the appeal, filed on August 2018, Meesha Shafi had challenged the Punjab governor’s decision to dismiss her complaint against Zafar whom she had accused of sexual harassment. Meesha reportedly had called out Zafar last April, accusing the singer of sexually harassing her in a long Twitter post, ‘’Sharing this because I believe that by speaking out about my own experience of sexual harassment, I will break the culture of silence that permeates through our society. It is not easy to speak out.. but it is harder to stay silent. My conscience will not allow it anymore #MeToo’’.

Justice Shahid Kareem announced the verdict in the case after hearing final arguments by the lawyers of both Shafi and Zafar on October 2. Announcing that Zafar had been exonerated for the third time, Barrister Ambreen Qureshi took it to Twitter writing, ‘’Meesha Shafi’s case dismissed by the Lahore High Court exonerating Ali Zafar for the third time! Congratulations @alizafarsays and @ayeshafazli. The way you guys fought this will go down in history’’.

Ali Zafar himself, confirming the news that the case against him has been dismissed wrote, ‘’Ms Shafi’s case dismissed by the Lahore High Court. This is the 3rd dismissal. Fake allegations by opportunists can destroy lives & undermine genuine victims. We fought to set a precedent. All evidence submitted will be public soon. Thank you for your love and support’’.
