Meesha Shafi Case:

You can not win the fight until you get the best legal team like Advocate Saqib Jillani and Nighat Dad, they were both the lawyers and members of the legal team of Meesha Shafi in the case. Nighat’s received lots of harassment messages and faced scary attacks for supporting Shafi, but she didn’t move an inch and stood with her, and that’s how Meesha got victory over Ali Zafar.
