Meesha Shafi and Ali Zafar’s fight started with the rise of Me Too Movement when the singer Meesha Shafi allegedly spoke ill about Ali Zafar. Meesha Shafi claimed that she has been harassed several times by her fellow singer Ali Zafar. All this allegation game became a legal fight when Ali Zafar filed a complaint against Meesha Shafi to defame his name without having any proof of the allegations.
Now their legal fight is continuing for a certain time. Recently the veteran actress Saba Hameed was seen in court for the hearing of her daughter’s case. The hearing took an unpleasant turn when Saba Hameed was questioned about her father and son. There were some inappropriate and triggering questions asked by Ali Zafar’s lawyer. Later the lawyer apologized.
Meesha Shafi took to Twitter to share her feelings concerning this matter. She seemed to be so hurt and wrote in her tweet that it was the most traumatic day for her. She went on to add that she is much heartbroken after seeing her respectable family getting intentionally attacked by the lawyers. Meesha said that she is saddened that derogatory comments were made on her grandfather whose cultural contributions can never be forgotten. Additionally, she shared a video of her mother in which she was being asked all the irrelevant, triggering questions about her family. Meesha claims that it was her mother who handled the situation with sheer elegance.
#MeToo can only progress if it is accompanied by structural reform. As long as there is gender insensitivity, unprofessionalism and harassment in the law enforcement and courts, victims will be deterred from coming forward, and justice will remain a far cry for those who do. https://t.co/xhEr4Wx5xK— Mehrooz Waseem (@MehroozW) November 4, 2021
Twitter users have shown their condolences to Meesha Shafi and second her opinion for asking intentionally irrelevant and baseless questions from her mother. Known celebrities like Iffat Omar and Ammar Ali Jan who is a social activist came forward to defend her. People are deeming that the behaviour with Saba Hameed indicates that this is why our women don’t have the courage to speak up. Our courtrooms have no decorum.
Thank you. Miss him so much. https://t.co/6Tbo4Khz6e— MEESHA SHAFI (@itsmeeshashafi) November 4, 2021
