Blasphemy: Man accused of preaching Ahmedi beliefs denied bail


A judicial magistrate on Saturday dismissed the post-arrest bail application of a doctor accused of preaching Ahmedi doctrines and distributing books containing derogatory remarks against prophets.

Dr Masood Ahmed had filed a post-arrest bail stating he had nothing to do with the matter.

Advocate Ghulam Mustafa Chaudhry, counsel for the complainant, said his client could produce audiovisual evidence to prove his allegations against Dr Ahmed.

Chaudhry said the respondent had preached Ahmedi doctrine to his client and given him books that blasphemed against prophets.

The magistrate observed that Dr Ahmed had been nominated in the FIR with a specific role. The witnesses’ statements also supported the prosecution’s case, he said. The books in question had been seized by the police. Prima facie, sufficient evidence was available to connect Dr Ahmed with the offence, he said and dismissed the application.
