The Supreme Court has approved leave in Meesha Shafi’s harassment case appeal for hearing against Lahore High Court’s decision. The SC adjourned the case for an infinite period.

As per the details, the Apex Court has admitted Meesha’s appeal against the Lahore High Court ruling for a preliminary hearing.

The Supreme Court ordered a suo-moto notice on the definition of “sexual harassment”. The Court has issued notice to singer Ali Zafar and Advocate General Punjab.

Meesha’s lawyer tweeted, ”Leave granted by the Supreme Court of Pakistan in Meesha Shafi vs The Governor of Punjab to consider whether all women, including students, are covered under Pakistan’s harassment law.”

“We’re very proud today for Mr. Khwaja Ahmad Hosain for the most brilliant advocacy,” she added.

‘Boom Boom’ singer had earlier tweeted, “Tomorrow, the Supreme Court of Pakistan hears my appeal on whether I, a ‘self-employed person’ have a right, as per the law, to be heard after being harassed and therefore expect justice on merit as an equal citizen.”
