'Baseless Accusations' Against Bajwa, Brig Rashid Naseer: Adil Raja Sued In UK Court

'Baseless Accusations' Against Bajwa, Brig Rashid Naseer: Adil Raja Sued In UK Court
A senior officer serving in the Pakistan Army filed a defamation case against disgraced former major and controversial YouTuber Adil Farooq Raja in the British High Court.

In his vlogs, Raja had accused a serving brigadier of the Pakistan Army of rigging elections against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), and also accused former army chief General retired Bajwa of "horse-trading".

An senior army officer has now sued the controversial YouTuber for defamation in the British High Court. Brigadier Rashid Naseer, a serving officer of the Pakistan Army currently posted at the ISI in Punjab, is reported to be the plaintiff against Adil Raja.

The controversial YouTuber also accused Brigadier Rashid Naseer of having secret meetings with former president Asif Zardari regarding the Punjab by-elections.

The lawsuit, filed in the British High Court, states that the YouTuber launched a malicious campaign against a Mr. Rashid Naseer on 14 June 2022. Lawyers for the plaintiff argued that the YouTuber's campaign has "seriously damaged the reputation" of the serving military officer.

On the other hand, the controversial YouTuber Adil Raja has confirmed the case filed against him.

The YouTuber claims that the "information" he provides in his tweets and vlogs is given to him by "sources high in the Pakistani establishment".

It may be noted that Raja emerged in London after going missing from Islamabad in April 2022. He has since become the "Permanent Representative to Pakistan" at an organization that calls itself the "International Human Rights Foundation".

Recently, he claimed that lewd videos of former army chief general (retired) Bajwa and former spymaster Lt Gen (retired) Faiz Hameed could be “leaked” in the coming days.

He alleged that retired generals of Pakistan Army had illicit affairs with four “top models and actresses” with the initials MK, MH, SA and KK (or AK).

This led to famed actor Kubra Khan posting a public message directed at Adil Raja, telling him to produce evidence for his claims in three days, or she would take legal action against him for defamation. Raja then went on the defensive, stating that he never named anyone and "condemned speculations".
