Pakistan: Charge filed against news channel for airing #CharlieHebdo cartoons

HYDERABAD: The Bhavaninagar police on Thursday registered a case against Zee News Limited for hurting the religious sentiments of the Muslim community by reportedly telecasting the Charlie Hebdo cartoons depicting Prophet Muhammad.

In his complaint, Mohammed Irfan, a student of Islamic studies from Jamia Nizmia and a resident of Nasheman Nagar, said that the news channel and anchor Sudheer Chowdhary were well aware that the cartoon would offend religious feelings and termed this as a deliberate act to create law and order problems, likely to trigger a controversy.
