Veena Malik, husband sentenced to 26 years in prison in Pakistan

Controversy’s favourite child Veena Malik has now gotten herself into a what we may call it as the biggest controversy of all times in her career. She, along with Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman (owner of Geo and Jang group), have now been sentenced to 26 years in prison by an anti-terrorism court for allegedly airing a blasphemous programme.

The duo have been accused of airing of an apparently sacrilegious programme on Geo television in the month of May, which had played a religious song while staging a mock marriage of Veena Malik with her husband Assad Bashir Khan. Besides Veena and Mir, Judge Shahbaz Khan has also sentenced Assad Bashir Khan along with TV host Shaista Wahidi for 26 years each.

Besides this, the ATC has also imposed a whopping 1.3 million Pakistani rupees as fine on the convicts and has ordered that their properties should be sold to raise the said fine, in case they failed to pay it. In its 40-page verdict, the court has also asked the police to arrest the convicts.
