Ali Zafar files defamation suit against Meesha Shafi, demands Rs1 billion
LAHORE - The Ali Zafar-Meesha Shafi controversy is just escalating and creating waves time and time again. The latest is that Ali has filed a case against Meesha under the Defamation Ordinance 2002 in Lahore court through his counselRana Intizar. There is a demand of 1 billion Rs in the appeal and an apology from Meesha on the same forum where she she posted "false allegations" regarding Ali.



The notice broke down why such a huge amount should be submitted.

“That the tweet dated 19.04.2018 and the Instep Article dated 21.04.2018 are false, slanderous, and defamatory statements, stand published and originate from the defendant, therefore, have caused tremendous injury to the Plaintiff’s reputation, good will, livelihood; being attempts to tarnish the good image of the plaintiff. As the defamatory statements are patently false, it can only be concluded that this malicious campaign has been launched against the plaintiff as part of a motivated conspiracy to tarnish the plaintiff’s good image through making false accusations. The defendant has associated herself with the global #MeToo movement, with one of the launchers of the #MeToo movement ‘Rose McGowan’ labeling the defendant as ‘a heroine for our time'. Be that as it may, that due to the defamatory campaign being spearheaded by the defendant, the plaintiff besides special damages in case of defamation further suffered the following damages:

Mental torture 2 crores

Loss of contacts 8 crores

Loss of reputation/ goodwill 50 crores

Loss of business opportunities 40 crores”

Meesha Shafi has earlier refused to delete the tweet when she was faced with a notice advising her to delete it or else face the consequences of paying Rs1 billion.
