The Sindh High Court on Wednesday ordered the relevant authorities to vanish scandalous and defamatory content on social media against Actress Mehwish Hayat.

As false allegations made by Maj (r) Adil raja, Actress Kubra Khan responds to the controversy by asking him to provide proof of his allegations against her character within 3 days otherwise she will take legal action and sue, whether he’s in Pakistan or England.
Actress Sajal Aly reacted to false allegations being leveled against her and fellow colleagues by an ex-servicemen Major (R) Adil Raja. “It is very sad that our country is becoming morally debased and ugly; character assassination is the worst form of humanity and sin”, tweeted Actress Sajal Aly.
During today’s hearing, the petitioner’s lawyer Khawaja Naveed said that a person named who is Military Officer Retired Adil Raja is levelling allegations against her and other actresses.
Mehwish Hayat said that Maj (r) Adil Raja has withdrawn his allegations against Kubra Khan.
“He has mentioned my name as M.H.,” she told the court.
The petitioner said that those who made fake accusations are “mentally ill”, urging the court that she wants them to be punished. Mehwish said that she also approached the FIA, however, no action is being taken.
The lawyer said that the accusers should be punished. While Speaking to media persons after the hearing, Mehwish said that her patience has run out.
“I and my family are going through mental agony because of the rumors,” she said.
The actress said that there are sick-minded people on social media and their hobby is to insult artists. Mehwish Hayat said that she is hopeful of getting justice from the judiciary.
