The Supreme Court on Thursday admitted a businessman’s petition seeking action against Sherry Rehman, Pakistan’s ambassador to the US, for allegedly committing blasphemy over two years ago.

The petition filed by Fahim Akhtar Gill, a trader from Multan in Punjab province, was heard by a two-judge bench. The judges directed the Multan city police chief to take action. In November 2010, Rehman had submitted a bill to the parliament secretariat, seeking an end to the death penalty under the blasphemy law, which has been alleged to be an instance of blasphemy.
