Supreme Court Orders Review of Blasphemy Conviction

The Supreme Court of Pakistan has ordered a review of a blasphemy conviction that has garnered international attention.

A three-member bench led by Justice Ijazul Ahsan heard the petition filed by the convict’s legal team, arguing that the trial was marred by procedural errors and lacked sufficient evidence.

The case has been a focal point for human rights organizations advocating for fair trials and the protection of minority rights in Pakistan.

During the proceedings, the defense highlighted inconsistencies in witness testimonies and procedural lapses in the initial trial.

The prosecution, however, maintained that the conviction was based on solid evidence and followed due legal process. Justice Ahsan emphasized the importance of ensuring justice and directed lower courts to re-examine the evidence.

This decision is seen as a step towards addressing concerns over the misuse of blasphemy laws in Pakistan and ensuring that justice is served without prejudice.
