In response to her issuance of a defamation notice to him, makeup artist Omayr Waqar has issued a counter legal notice to actor Sana Javed.
Taking to Instagram, he posted pictures of the notice on Monday evening. The move comes shortly after Javed issued Waqar and two other people defamation notices. She claimed their social media posts were about her and were part of a “proper smear campaign” against her.
“That the contents of paragraph 2 are denied as concocted. It is submitted that at no point did our client name your client and has no nexus whatsoever with Manal Salem whatsoever,” read the notice.
“Our client had nothing to do with what was said by Ms. Saleem and the fact that an allegation of innuendo has been placed on our client suggests that your client has presumed the same without any evidence or proof of the same that our clients’ social media post was targeted towards her.”
“Moreover, our client is a well-known and sought-after makeup artist a fact which is well known to your client, and as such, there arises no need on the part of our client to seek publicity, and accordingly, all such frivolous claims are denied as being incorrect and misconceived.”
The makeup artist also denied defaming Javed. “It is a well-known fact that the entire social media is brimming with stories about your client and her demeanor in general, which has nothing to do with our client, and as such this notice is nothing but a feeble attempt to harass and coerce our client from exercising his freedom of expression guaranteed to him under the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan,” his notice read.
Have a look at it:
“It is submitted that our client never mentioned or stated your client’s name on any social media outlet and mere presumption his posts on social media were targeted towards your client are nothing but an attempt to harass our client,” it added. “Needless to add, the general outbreak in respect of your client’s demeanor on social media suggests that this notice is a feeble attempt to salvage some pride.”
He has asked Javed to withdraw her notice and refrain from taking any further action against him. “Needless to add, our client shall also defend any frivolous claims brought against him by your client through witnesses and evidence well known to your client.”
The past few days have seen numerous similar accounts pile up against Javed. While the likes of renowned figures like Nadeem Baig and Fahad Mustafa, found the Khaani star to be “completely professional” and “extremely humble,” the sole witness — makeup artist Syed Hussain — claimed otherwise.
