Pakistani singer Meesha Shafi is sentenced to 3 years imprisonment for falsely accusing singer Ali Zafar in a defamation case. The case was filed by Ali Zafar late in 2018, and it was being heard by the honourable court since then. After 02 years, the court has finally given the verdict, sentencing Meesha Shafi 3 years imprisonment.
The verdict was announced today by the honourable court after hearing the arguments of both sides. However, Meesha Shafi has rejected the court’s verdict saying “Which woman has got justice in a case of this nature and at what cost?” Therefore, Meesha’s lawyers are now planning to challenge the court’s verdict.
Meesha still pleads “Not guilty” and plans to refer higher court in order to challenge the verdict.
Ali Zafar VS Meesha Shafi
Back in 2018, when the #Metoo movement just started, singer Meesha levelled sexual harassment allegations against Ali Zafar. It all started from Twitter which has now ended in the court. At first, Meesha Shafi was given due to coverage by national and international media. But Ali Zafar categorically denied all allegations and announced to go to the court.
He filed a defamation case against Meesha and 8 others involved. The court proceedings began, and Meesha, along with other respondents, was repeatedly called by the court to provide evidence of harassment. But she couldn’t produce any evidence nor prove her claims. The news from court proceedings made headlines, and through the tenure, the case was a hot topic.
Now, Meesha Shafi has been sent to jail, let’s see what happens next.
