Ali Zafar’s counsel has sent legal notice to Meesha Shafi, which she received today, asking for her to delete the tweet accusing Ali of sexual harassment of physical nature on multiple occasions. He also demanded an apology on the same social platform which was used to accuse him declaring Ali’s innocence. Failing to do, a defamation suite of Rs1 billion will be filed against her.
The notice said that failing to delete the tweet and issuing an apology on Twitter within 14 days after receiving the legal notice, the counsel has instructions from client Ali to claim damages to the tune of at least Rs 100 Crores.
Meesha’s legal team has said that contents of the notice are false and that Meesha Shafi’s allegations of sexual harassment against Ali Zafar are based on truth, and we have evidence of said harassment against him.
The notice, after speaking of Ali Zafar’s accomplishments and work for the music and film industry, said that Meesha Shafi’s fictional tweet has brought shock and dismay to Ali, his family and fans across the globe. It said that Meesha has used her twitter to mudsling Ali with her tweet.
