In one of the rare swift actions, Sindh High Court has ordered PTA and FIA to remove objectionable content on Pakistani actress Kubra Khan from social media.
Kubra Khan had filed a petition in the high court seeking swift action against the alleged slanderous made against her and other actresses in the video uploaded by Major (r) Adil Raja. Adil Raja in his video claimed that top models of Pakistan have been used to honeytrap and make objectionable videos of politicians. He took initials that purportedly pointed to Kubra Khan, Mehwish Hayat, Sajal Aly, and Mahira Khan.
His video met with strong criticism on social media. Kubra Khan had warned to take action against Major Adil Raja for his alleged slanderous remarks. On Thursday night, Kubra Khan shared the order released by the High Court ordering the removal of the content.
In her post, she said, “The past four days have been so difficult for me and my family that I don’t think I’ll ever be able to explain in words. I couldn’t wrap my head around as to why anyone would do this to me even after it was clarified that my name or initials were misinterpreted why was I still getting bullied so ferociously,” said Kubra Khan in her post.

“Even before I reacted, why were my pictures being used in such an inappropriate manner, and then I realized that no one’s ever put a stop to it. Because we’re so used to being quiet. Until this story dies, another arises to do the same damage just because we didn’t speak up. But enough is enough.”
So This is me, exercising my constitutional rights as a Pakistani and relying on our law to protect my dignity and this is me saying what I want to say for all the hard-working independent women out there who are insulted daily,” the Sinf-e-Aahan actress said. “
“I’m not gonna stand here and say I stood up for every woman out there but I will say that I stood up so that from now on if a situation like this arises, every woman and man out there knows that standing up for yourself is your RIGHT!,” added Kubra Khan.
In the end, she said, “So now. I leave it in your hands, Our law Implementors, and God’s Hands. I rest my case.”
