On Tuesday, Ali Zafar’s legal counsel has presented the affidavits of seven witnesses against Meesha Shafi in the famous sexual harassment case.

Ali Zafar: Setting a new precedent 

Ali Zafar is setting a new precedent. Before he boldly went to court, most who were accused under the new trend of “Me Too Campaign” either stayed silent or protested only in media. Ali Zafar vowed that he will prove Meesha wrong in courts and has already achieved victory in the first stage where Meesha’s case was effectively thrown out by a court. Now Ali Zafar is working to establish, in court, in a separate case that Meesha’s allegations were without any basis in reality. From the progress of this case, it appears that Ali Zafar will be setting a new legal precedent where famous men accused of harassing women colleagues may be able to fight back. “Me Too Campaign” has been an important development across the world but it is believed that it was widely abused because the accuser carried no burden of proving anything.
