On the order of Sambrial Additional District and Session Judge Rai Muhamamd Nawaz, the Sambrial Police have registered a blasphemy case (No. 340/2014) against Jang Group’s Chief Mir Khalilur Rehman, anchorperson Dr Shaista Lodhi, actress Veena Malik, her husband Asad Bashir, producer and cameramen of Geo TV programme “Utho Jago Pakistan” and some other accused.
The ADSJ ordered the Sambrial Police for registration of a case while announcing verdict on a writ petition filed by a local lawyer Muhamamd Imran Cheema.
Case has been registered under section 295-A (Delibrate and malicious acts intended to outrage feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs) and 298-A (use of derogatory remarks, etc. in respect of Holy Personage). The court also ordered the police to ensure early arrest of the accused in this case.
The FIR revealed that the accused had aired some blasphemous contents in Geo TV’s programme morning show “Utho Jago Pakistan”, which badly hurt the religious sentiments of the Muslims.
