The Pakistani ambassador to the United States, Sherry Rehman, is facing a criminal investigation in her home country for blasphemy. The Supreme Court of Pakistan ordered that investigation into whether she “outraged the religious feelings of Muslims with deliberate and malicious intent.”
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.
Howard Friedman indicates that the blasphemy charge stems from Rehman’s opposition to blasphemy laws:
Presumably the interview related to Rehman’s attempt at that time to get the National Assembly to eliminate the death penalty for blasphemy.
So it’s blasphemous not to want to kill other people for blasphemy.
