The suspect, an owner, and principal of a private school were charged after distributing copies of her writings.

The judge called, beyond any doubt, the quilt of the suspect women to have written and distributed the derogatory writings. The defence counsel herein failed to prove that a woman is a person of unsound mind. After that, she was sentenced to death and fined under the Pakistani Blasphemy charge, section 295C PPC.
