ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Police have registered a case towards a journalist on allegations of attributing “disrespectful” statements “not primarily based on information” about Islam to former prime minister Imran Khan. The case was registered at RA Bazar police station in Rawalpindi on Saturday towards Waqar Satti on the criticism of a cable operator named Chaudhry Nasir Qayyum, the Daybreak newspaper reported. In accordance with the primary data report (FIR), the complainant alleged that Satti, in a tweet towards the previous prime minister, “disrespected” Islam. Qayyum mentioned Satti attributed some statements to Imran which have been “not primarily based on information”. “Imran Khan has not talked about any such phrases […] talked about in Waqar Satti’s tweet – in any of his speeches,” the FIR quoted him as saying. He added that Satti’s actions had damage his non secular sentiments, “in addition to that of hundreds of different Muslims”. The case towards Satti was registered below Sections 295-A (deliberate and malicious acts supposed to outrage non secular emotions of any class by insulting its faith or non secular beliefs) and 500 (punishment for defamation) of the Pakistan Penal Code. Because the information of Satti being booked was shared on social media, former minister and PTI chief Fawad Chaudhry mentioned the case was about “utilizing faith for outrage”. Satti works for Geo Information tv.
