Taxila, Pakistan/IBNS: Pakistan police have arrested a man in Taxila for allegedly making disparaging remarks against a companion of the Holy Prophet, media reports said.

The man was held after a delegation comprising local religious leaders led by Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP)’s area president Yasir Mehmood Rizvi informed the Wah Saddar police that the suspect had allegedly used derogatory language against one of the Prophet’s companions publicly in a hotel, reports The Dawn.

The delegation reportedly presented video footage against the suspect.

Police have registered a case against the suspect under Section 298-A of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC), and taken him into custody during a raid on his house, according to the Pak newspaper.
