The two were charged in August last year with "violating the sanctity" of the mosque during the shooting of a song at the historic Wazir Ali Khan Mosque in Lahore. In the said case, the Sessions Court had also granted bail to both of them last year but their arrest warrants were issued after they failed to appear in the fresh hearing.
The case of both was heard in the Judicial Magistrate's Court, in which Bilal Saeed and Saba Qamar were also scheduled to appear but could not. When they did not appear in court, the Judicial Magistrate issued arrest warrants for both of them but also directed them to submit bail bonds to avoid arrest.
The case against Saba Qamar and Bilal Saeed was freshly heard after a full challan was filed by the prosecution. The court issued arrest warrants for both of them for non-appearance but also directed them to submit bail bond of Rs 30,000 to avoid arrest.
In the challan submitted by the prosecution, Bilal Saeed and Saba Qamar have been accused of violating the sanctity, including shooting a video in Wazir Ali Khan Mosque. A case under Section 295P was initially filed against them at Akbari Gate police station in Lahore following a court order.
