A women rights activist, Leena Ghani, has sent Rs 500 million legal notice to singer Ali Zafar over a ‘smear campaign’ allegedly being run against her by the singer after her support to Meesha Shafi over her sexual harassment allegations against Zafar. The Sindh High Court (SHC) has issued notice to Ali Zafar via a sessions judge in Lahore.
After years of personal and legal attacks by Mr. Zafar, I have decided to stand up for myself and fight back.

The complainant says that the campaign has caused her swear trauma. Besides this defamation suit, Ali Zafar is also involved in another legal battle with Meesha Shafi who accused him of sexual harassment.
ARY news reported that Sindh High Court (SHC) has served a notice to him for January 25. The notice was served on the singer via a sessions judge of Lahore. The notice says that while Leena Ghani was not part of the conflict between Ali Zafar and Meesha Shafi, he still ran a smear campaign against her on twitter.
