Lahore session court on Wednesday acknowledged Meesha Shafi’s allure for changing the judge after the vocalist documented a ‘no certainty’ request for absence of trust in Ali Zafar’s criticism suit.

In her application, Shafi had communicated an absence of trust in Additional District and Sessions Judge Shakeel Ahmad, who had been hearing the suit, contending through her guidance that she trusted the judge was showing favoritism towards Zafar.
“The judge has appeared clear and evident inclination for the offended party which is obvious from the mode and way in which he has so far directed the procedures,” the request read. “The respondent does not have any certainty that the scholarly judge will most likely unbiasedly and decently continuing for the situation and thus wants to exchange her previously mentioned case to some other court of skillful purview.”
The appeal noticed that the judge had “prompted the observers not to give long replies as he may negate himself or he may preference his own position”. In the meantime, the criticism suit recorded against Meesha Shafi by Ali Zafar has now been dismissed till May 11.
