Ali Zafar vs Meesha Shafi – Case Dismissed by LHC!
Lahore High Court has dismissed Meesha Shafi’s case of sexual harassment against Ali Zafar on Friday.
According to reports, Meesha Shafi had filed an appeal against Ali Zafar in her harassment case after the court exonerated Ali Zafar for the first two times.
The singer had challenged the Punjab government’s decision to dismiss her complaint against Zafar whom she has accused of sexual harassment last year.
Justice Shahid Kareem announced the verdict in the case after hearing arguments by the lawyers of both parties. The final verdict exonerated Ali Zafar for the third time.
Ali Zafar shared this news on social media and wrote ‘fake allegations’ can destroy lives.
The singer/actor said that he fought to set a precedent and thanked all those who supported him during this tough time!
Here’s what Ali Zafar 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.

Meesha Shafi had accused Ali Zafar of harassing her and this news created an uproar everywhere last year. Where many came out in support of Shafi in the beginning but looking at the evidence now, people are supporting Ali Zafar.

The most courageous, brave and graceful thing you can do is accept and apologise for your mistake. I want everyone to respect this girl now and forever. Do not doubt or judge her or her intentions. She is verified to be a real and genuine victim of harassment who was misguided like many others at the time. She recreated and posted this from the same account she had posted from last year and deleted which is part of the legal record. This should be a learning curve for all to always verify FACTS before reaching any conclusion. Once again, thank you for your faith and love. Much love.
Ali Zafar also filed a defamation case against Shafi after she accused him of sexual harassment. He submitted a Rs. 1 billion damages suit against her which is currently underway in a session court in Lahore.
The Teefa in Trouble actor accused Messha Shafi and her legal team for deliberately delaying the defamation case after Shafi’s lawyer asked for more time for preparation.
As a response, Meesha also filed a Rs. 2 billion damages suit against Ali Zafar and accused him of making false allegations against her on media.
The damages suit included Rs. 1 billion for the loss of goodwill and reputation caused and Rs. 1 billion was said to be for mental torture and agony.
