A district and sessions judge on Tuesday directed the Operations SP to record the statement of a petitioner, who wants to register cases against three men, including a former Lahore High Court (LHC) judge, for allegedly writing a blasphemous book.
Petitioner Qari Muhammad Rafique said he had earlier gone to the police station with a court order to record his statement, but the SHO did not entertain him.
On June 11, Rafique had called police and informed them that a blasphemous book was being published at a printing house.
Police said when they reached the office the caller was already there. They said they seized the literature and sent its contents to the Auqaf Department’s Muttahida Ulema Council for comments.
