"Their act was in completed violation of Islamic tenets, aimed at deliberately hurting the sentiments of Muslims, especially of those in Pakistan."

The act, he added, was seen on television and through photographs, leading to desecration of Islamic principles.

The applicant said that the accused, besides committing a major sin, violated Pakistan Penal Code 295-A, saying an FIR should be registered against them and legal proceedings initiated.
