'Blasphemy': SC admits plea against Sherry

18 January, 2013

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court has directed the Multan City Police Officer (CPO) to decide an application regarding the registration of blasphemy case against Pakistan's Ambassador to the US, Sherry Rehman, according to the law.

Mohammad Faheem Akhtar Gill had filed an appeal in the Supreme Court against a Lahore High Court, Multan Bench, decision that it has no jurisdiction in the case, and has prayed that the Punjab Police be directed to register a criminal case against Sherry Rehman under Section 295C of Pakistan Penal Code. He made Multan district and sessions judge, Multan CCPO, an SHO and Sherry Rehman as respondents.

According to the applicant, Sherry Rehman had in a talk show on a private TV channel on November 30, 2010 outraged the religious feelings of Muslims with deliberate and malicious intent.

End.

Self destruction

This is the most useless action that could be taken...destroying your own ambassador because of someone's misinterpretation of something that was said two years ago?....these archaic blasphemy laws make Pakistan look ridiculous in the world of nations...

Lunacy

Blasphemy is a victimless crime. Its definitely time my fellow Muslims stopped being so sensitive - our faith is strong enough to cope with anything that people say against it
