Meesha Shafi on April 19 announced on Social Media that she was sexually harassed by Ali Zafar. This was followed by a reply on the same medium denying the accusations. Zafar did the same and denied that he harassed her.

While the industry and society seem divided regarding the matter, the battle seems to keep getting complicated.

In a report by The Express Tribune, the newspaper confirmed that Malik Muhammad Rafique Rajwana, the current acting Governor of Punjab, has rejected Meesha’s appeal, which she had filed under the Protection Against Harassment of Women at Workplace Act 2010.

Her lawyer, Ahmad Pansota, said that they pursued the case under the Protection Against Harassment of Women at Workplace Act and the ombudsperson and governor rejected the pleas because an employer-employee relationship did not exist between Shafi and Zafar.

“Now we’ll be approaching judicial forums such as the high court and Supreme Court,” said the lawyer. “So far we have approached administrative forums and maybe we weren’t able to explain our arguments properly or they were unable to understand what we said.”
