The Apex court on Wednesday ordered immediate arrest of culprit Shah Hussain in Khadijah stabbing case, overturning LHC’s 2018 acquittal of the suspect. The entire nation is celebrating justice served in the high profile case including our very own celebrities.
The case remained in spotlight due to Siddiqui’s strong determination to pursue justice. She had accused Shah Hussain of attacking her with a knife and stabbing her 23 times on May 3, 2016 near Lahore’s Shimla Hill, which had left her critically injured.
Now that the court has passed a verdict in Siddiqui’s favour accepting her appeal, we are all happy and even our celebrities are thrilled.
Heartthrob Osman Khalid Butt took to twitter to congratulate Siddiqui. ‘In the face of incredible opposition, disbelief and outright hostility, thank you for persevering in your pursuit of justice, @khadeeeej751. Congratulations,’ tweeted Butt.
Hamza Ali Abbasi also gave his two cents on the verdict and appreciated the determination of the young girl in pursing her case. ‘#KhadijaSiddiqui Allah ka shukkar. Salute to the determination of Khadija who has halted her studies abroad to fight the case here in Pakistan. Now we all await an exemplary punishment,’ Abbasi wrote
