Fauzia Wahab accused of blasphemy


Express May 25, 2010

LAHORE: The Justice Lawyers Group on Tuesday filed a petition against an SHO for not registering an FIR against Information Secretary Fauzia Wahab.

The convener of the lawyers group, Sohail Baig Noori accused Wahab of blasphemy by indulging in 'loose talk' culminating into a defamatory statement about Hazrat Omar. He alleged that Fauzia Wahab compared President Asif Ali Zardari to the caliph.

The group also accused Wahab of comparing the Pakistan Constitution to the Holy Quran which the lawyers said is blasphemous.

The Court ordered a notification to the SSP investigation to inquire into the incident before any such FIR is registered.

If the case is registered and goes to court, the maximum penalty, if convicted, for the crime is life imprisonment and the minimum is three years imprisonment.

Dr Muneeb | 11 years ago | Reply @ Danish.. At the time of Hazrat Omer R.A, Hazrat Usman R.A, Hazrat Abu Bakar R.A and Hazrat Ali R.A, the the Qazi or mufti, equaled the chief justice/justice of today. At that time the Qazi/mufti had full authority to call in court anyone whom he considered guilty; be it the Caliph of the time. If our constitution says our President has immunity against all cases filed against him, means that its against the Islamic teachings.
