Police were directed on Thursday to investigate allegations against Sherry Rehman, who has already faced death threats from militants after calling for reforms to the country’s anti-blasphemy law, according to court documents.
If the police find that there is enough evidence to support the allegations, the court will press charges against Rehman.
According to Pakistan’s blasphemy laws, anyone found to have uttered words derogatory to the Prophet Muhammad can be put to death.
And those who are accused are sometimes lynched by mobs even if they are found innocent by the courts…
Gill was watching the television interview with Rehman with two friends. He said he felt her comments were derogatory to the Prophet Muhammad and, being a Muslim, it was his responsibility to do something about it.
