Singer Bilal Saeed and actress Saba Qamar have both been issued arrest warrants in Lahore in connection with the shooting of a video at the historic Wazir Khan mosque. Warrants were issued for the pair because they failed to appear at the court hearings. Following a complaint by lawyer Farhat Manzoor, an Akbari Gate police officer filed a complaint against the duo last month.

This case was filed under section 295, deliberately and maliciously insulting the religion or religious beliefs of any group of people, of the Pakistan Penal Code. There was a short video clip of Qamar and Saeed at the historic mosque that went viral on social media. There were strong reactions from religious circles in response to the video.
