Barrister Khadija Siddiqui who was stabbed 23 times in broad daylight in Lahore, will now fight actress Uzma Khan’s case against Business tycoon Malik Riaz’s family. Uzma has accused Riaz’s family members of physical abuse.

Uzma has now hired a legal team which includes Khadija and Barrister Hassaan Niazi (who is also PM Imran Khan’s nephew). Apparently, Niazi has been taking an active part in Uzma’s case against Riaz. He was seen accompanying her in all the legal proceedings. Uzma also thanked him for all his support during her bad time.

“He is staying with me when all the world has turned against me. He is the only one supporting me. I want to thank him for his support against the influential people. This incident has brought a lot of defamation and insult to me,” she said while commenting on Hassaan.

Hassaan has claimed he was repeatedly approached by the other party to compromise and added that they would not be able to buy him.

 

Khadija also took to Twitter and lashed out at Riaz’s family for violating someone’s private space and threatening them with physical and sexual abuse.

Meanwhile, Malik Riaz has denied any involvement in the incident and said he would file a defamation case against the actress. The wife of the man at the center of the story, Amna Usman, also come out with her own statement

Who’s Khadija Siddiqui?

Khadija Siddiqi officially became a lawyer after passing 12 examinations in July last year. Her graduation ceremony for a ‘call to the bar’ held at the Lincoln’s Inn in October last year. Khadija completed her Law degree from the Blackstone School of Law (University of London).

Khadija was brutally attacked by Shah Hussein in May 2016 when she was picking up her 7-year-old sister from school in Lahore. Hussein attacked her because she rejected him romantically. In the jealous rage, she was attacked while her young sister looked on at a busy Lahore road. Khadija had to put up a lonely fight to get justice but soon her campaign gathered momentum all over the internet and media.

On January 22, 2019, whilst giving the intense and stressful bar exams she had to return to Pakistan to attend her final hearing in the Supreme Court, which was decided in her favor and finally closed her struggle of three years.
