Bollywood star Veena Malik sentenced to 26 years in prison for ‘blasphemous TV programme’

Bollywood star Veena Malik has been sentenced to 26 years in prison for taking part in a ‘blasphemous’ TV programme.

The 30-year-old actress, along with her husband Asad Bashir Khan Khattak, the owner of the company that aired the programme Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman and TV host Shaista Wahidi have been given 104 years in jail between them by a Pakistani court.

The offending programme was shown several months ago and involved the couple reenacting their wedding to the tune of a “contemptuous” qawwali, a traditional form of South Asian music.
