On the 9th of September, news of arrest warrants issued against host and actress Iffat Omar and comedian Ali Gul Pir made rounds on social media in singer Ali Zafar’s defamation case.
A Lahore court has issued a bailable arrest warrant for Iffat Omar while a nonbailable arrest warrant for comedian Ali Gul Pur in a defamation lawsuit filed by Ali Zafar. Both are suspected to be part of a group that supposedly ran a smear campaign against the singer-turned-actor.
In response to the non-bailable warrant against him, Ali Gul Pir wrote a cryptic tweet for Ali Zafar on the microblogging site. He said, “No matter how many warrants I get, I’m not apologising for a joke I made 3 years back. I’m gona fight it. Any wannabe k-pop singing midlife crisis ****star can try his best, you will only get what you deserve. End of your already dying career by the truth #freedom #Justice.”
