LAHORE: Counsel for Meera on Wednesday told a court hearing in her suit for jactication of alleged marriage with Attiqur Rehman that his application for her medical examination was meant to humiliate her and should be rejected.

Rehman in his application had asked the court to order her medical examination, in order to determine whether she was a virgin. Meera has said that the nikahnama presented by Rehman is a forgery. On Wednesday, counsel for Meera submitted a written reply in the court of Judge Malik Imran Shahbaz seeking the dismissal of the application. Meera had filed a suit for jactitation of marriage. She said that she was not married to the respondent or anybody.

She said he had claim marriage to malign her in the media following a falling out as business partner. The court had summoned Rehman, who told the court that she was his wife and later filed an application requesting the court to constitute a medical board for her medical examination. The court has adjourned the next hearing till Thursday (today).

    that is absurd. my goodness. like rizwanTkhan said virginity has nothing to do with marriage especially in this day and age. also who choose to keep it or those who choose to lose it prior to marriage has nothing to do with us. it’s their own choice.Recommend

    a sick society degrading its women.why the hell should any woman have to submit herself to such humiliation to prove a nikah didn’t occur?
    it’s her body,her life.if she wants to have physical relationship with any man that’s her right,no misogynistic court or judge has any right to impose their cavemen mentality on her.Recommend

    what is muslim men’s obsession with female virginity??

    we are sick & animal like possessive to the extent that we have to have a clause inserted in the marriage forms that the bride to be has to be a virgin!!!

    What about the dulhay mian’s virginity status????

    Why doesn’t the misogynistic mullah include a clause for prince charming’s virginity in the marriage form???Recommend

    @Zara:
    You said “What??? Are they going to take her clothes off for this humiliating exam?” What is it that you really mean.
    1- You are surprised that someone else will take her cloths off (may be you meant by force)
    2- How come this exam be humiliating, as it can be humiliating if she is forced physically otherwise in case of doing this by law, this is also humiliating (non-physical) as .well.

    My opinion is that there shouldn’t be medical examination for her about this.Recommend

    wats wrong in this?? if he wants the womans virginity to be tested toh isme galat kya hai?? to all those who are objecting, just answer 1 question….. before you buy something, dont u check if it is sealed properly or not????? then why cn tthis man chek if the woman is sealed or shes been used before??

    come on guys, a woman with a broken seal is worthless and none of us would want to marry her……u no it as well as i do. ask urself, would marry a woman if u KNEW from before tht shes not a virgin? the answer is no…….. a womans worth is restricted to her hymen, and without tht, shes useless…..period!Recommend

    Yes i agree with RizwanTKhan she can loose virginity without marriage…but in my view she is lying .. as her Pictures of Nikah been flooded in News and all they seem to be real not faked… than her close relatives also endorsing this..

    She will definitely lose the case…Recommend

    Enjoy my poem as such on my thoughtful collections as such:

    Excuse was only passport double
    That was teasing,was no trouble
    Even an angel on airport duty
    Would stop,yes,that Meera beauty

    Stop her, look at her, got chance
    Languishingly,yes his heart can dance
    Smile you Meera, you are pretty
    On airport of the Karachi city

    Watch her sadly,and just be glad
    Watch her, wish the kiss you had
    Can’t dare tell her, her you love
    See her eyes,like in stars above

    In january cold,yes she is spring
    Warms your cold heart, you can sing
    Passports were excuse for show
    Inside heart said,she should’nt go

    They stopped her,wanting not to miss
    The looks of face of grandest kiss
    Lovable, kissable, sure she’s yes
    Meera don’t loose all charms you possess

    Air port crew did’nt want to forget
    How her sweet lips and kiss met
    In January,it’s cruel winter cold
    Watching her must be warmth to hold

    Watching the beauty Meera aint sin
    That’s how love begets for begin
    Watching her sadly, must be true
    With her out of sight,brings blue

    The rose like lips,her apple cheeks
    Kisses on them is all one seeks
    If not kisses, it is for delight
    Passports excuses are stops for her sight

    I wrote a poem on Meera before
    Published yes, I write one more
    Will she let me kiss her face
    And her lips with love embrace

    Meera can be admired for her very bold charms and beauty.Beauty is allways beauty whether it is muslim beauty, or hindu beauty.And the beauty must be honoured whether dressed or otherwise.

    You are stereo typing muslim men for something that they do not represent. Have you never heard of something like this happen in India?

    Why doesn’t the misogynistic mullah include a clause for prince charming’s virginity in the marriage form???
    Why not you check the history to see if it actually was a mullah who included the clause for bride’s virginity

    I agree that most of the Mullahs are idiot extremists. But so are wanna be liberals like you who want to blame Mullahs for EVERYTHING and want to point fingers at muslims/Islam Recommend

    Oh my god, how sick is this? A woman, heck, anyone, has the right to their sexuality and what they choose to do w/ it. She’s a grown woman and can do anything she pleases. This is disgusting and like someone said up there, a man who claims to be her husband cannot actually be asking this of his wife, it’s obvious he is doing this out of spite. Recommend

    rehman is a diabolical fellow and he is doing this to humiliate her in front of the narrow minded pakistanis – if she is not married, as she claims, then she should be a virgin, per our society. and if the test shows that she is not a virgin, which we all know it will, then he will claim that he is the cause.
    btw – a girl’s hymen can tear even by playing sports or bicycling.Recommend

    @Man enough to say my true feelings
    Thank you very much for comparing a woman to a product and asking to check if ‘her seal’ is broken or unbroken. Your idea of manhood claims that a woman is nothing more than her virginity, and is worth nothing after her virginity is gone. By that measure, I suppose most of the women of this world are worthless creatures. And what is a man’s worth might I ask? They have no seal to begin with so I guess they were born worthless.Recommend
