Sindh High Court Bar Association Hosts Mujra Dance as Part of Sufi and Cultural Event

Gives a whole new meaning to the terms “High Court” and Bar”.

The Sindh High Court Bar Association (SHCBA) hosted a mujra within the premises of the High Court in Karachi on Thursday.

The SHCBA collaborated with the Legal Eagles Lawyer’s Movement and the Lawyers Entertainment Club to present a “Sufi and cultural music event” at the courthouse’s new Bar Room. President of SHCBA, Saleem Mangrio, has now taken notice and issued a statement on the matter.

What transpired within Pakistan’s “hall of justice” was a bunch of judges and lawyers enjoying a cultural dance by a not-so-modestly dressed woman to such kalaams like Sunny Leone’s “Laila Main Laila” while Quaid-e-Azam’s portrait contemplates in the background.

In a shocking incident that has left netizens outraged, Pakistani lawyers and judges were seen enjoying mujra within the premises of the Sindh High Court as part of a cultural music event. Litigation lawyer, Abdul Moiz Jaferii shared a clip from the event that quickly went viral on social media.

In the clips, the girl can be seen performing a provocative dance in front of a portrait of Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan, which has only added to the outrage.

The event was a collaboration between the Sindh High Court Bar Association and the Legal Eagles Lawyer’s Movement, and was meant to showcase “Sufi and cultural music”.

President of the Sindh High Court Bar Association, Saleem Mangrio, has taken notice of the incident and has issued a statement condemning the inappropriate behavior.

In the statement, he stated that such activities are below the decorum and dignity of the Sindh High Court, and will not be allowed in the future.

Netizens have also expressed their disappointment and have demanded that strict action be taken against those responsible.

The incident has sparked a debate on the role of culture and decency in public spaces, especially in government institutions.


  1. This information is contrary to facts there was no Judge and no any other such represantatives of bars were there and they weren’t aware from such type of any awkward dancing program in the Bar while this function was on but due to few people our lawyer community is disgracful. And among our lawyer there is outrage on this shamful act I being lawyer stricly comdemn the act.

  2. They have shown Thier inner moral. Value. enjoying exploitation of women.
    How we can expect they can talk on human rights and moral value….every function has been plagued with corruption

  3. Oh please, will you religious puritan nuts get over yourselves already. It’s been 70+ years of the pearl clutching.

  4. عدالتیں طوائف ہی کا کردار تو ادا کرتی آئی ہیں آج تک۔ لہذہ شرم کیسی اخلاقیات کیسی

    • Dear Publisher you must be aware of it that you can be called to the court and so be banned, as this has been done by bar and not by bench, by picturing the honorable High court and mentioning presence of judges you’re offending its prestige. However, i strongly condemn this shameful act and this ungraceful activity is totally against the decorum of the Bar.
