Pakistani actor Saba Qamar and singer Bilal Saeed have landed in trouble as the Pakistan Police have filed an FIR against both for shooting a music video inside the historic 17th century Wazir Khan mosque in Lahore. The FIR was filed under Section 295 of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) for alleged ‘desecration’. As per a report in Times Now, the FIR was filed at the Akbari police station of Lahore on the basis of a complaint filed by advocate Farhat Manzoor.

In the complaint, Manzoor said that filming a music video inside a mosque has hurt the religious sentiments. Saeed and Qamar have issued an apology on social media. Their music video ‘Qabool’ was released on August 11 without the scene which had led to the controversy.

Dawn news had quoted an official statement from Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar’s office saying, “The mosque is the holiest place and no one can be allowed to trample upon its sanctity. Whosoever is found responsible will not be spared.”

As per a report in PTI, a Pakistani court on Tuesday summoned the ‘Hindi Medium’ actress on September 3 regarding the case. A Lahore session’s court has summoned Qamar and Saeed to appear before it on September 3 and stopped the police from arresting them.

Presenting the first teaser of ‘Qubool’🙏🏽 This is also the only sequence that was shot at the historical Wazir Khan Mosque. It’s a prologue to the music video featuring a Nikah scene. It was neither shot with any sort of playback music nor has it been edited to the music track. I won’t explain any further as the full video comes out on 11th of August. The BTS video that's making rounds on social media was just a circular movement to click stills for the poster of ‘Qubool’ depicting a happily married couple right after their Nikah. Hurting or offending anyone or being disrespectful to a holy place is as unimaginable and unacceptable for me as for any decent human being. Despite this if we have unknowingly hurt anyone’s sentiments we apologise to you all with all our heart. Love & Peace! #Qubool releasing on 11th of August 🙏❤️ @bilalsaeed_music
