Veena Malik, the Pakistani Bollywood film actress, has been sentenced to 26 years in jail for “malicious acts of blasphemy” for appearing in a mock television wedding scene based on the marriage of the Prophet Mohamed’s daughter.
Malik, 30, who lives in Dubai, expressed her disbelief at the sentence. “26 years! Come on. 26 years is a lifetime,” she told Gulf News. “But I have faith in higher courts in Pakistan.
She has it on what authority?“When the final verdict comes, it will do justice to me. Nothing bad is going to happen.”
