MULTAN - A local court has directed police to register a case against former information minister Sherry Rehman on charges of blasphemy. However, no case was registered till late Tuesday. Additional Sessions Judge Mehr Nasir Hussain instructed police to record the statement of the appellant under section 154 of the criminal law. It means the order for registration of case is passed, said Rashid Rehman, defence counsel for Sherry Rehman, while talking to journalists. He said that he would challenge the order in the High Court. A trader, Faheem Akhtar Gull had filed an application with the Chehlyak Police against Sherry Rehman, stating that she discussed the blasphemy law in a TV show on November 30, 2010 and used blasphemous language. I was forced to move court. I filed an application for the registration of a case against Sherry Rehman with the Chehlyak Police. I also sent the same application to the CPO, the SSP Operations, the IG and the Chief Minister Punjab but no case was registered, Faheem Akhtar said. Ive acquired a copy of the order and I am consulting my lawyers to get the case registered, he said. The defence counsel was of the view that neither the programme was recorded in Multan nor aired from the city. It was aired from Islamabad and watched across the country. If the case is registered on the complaint of a viewer, then an unending wave of cases may start across the country, he said. When contacted, the Moharrar at the Chehlyak Police Station said that he had not received any court orders for the registration of a case against Sherry.
