Naushad Valiyani, a Muslim doctor in the southern city of Hyderabad, was arrested Friday after a complaint was lodged with police alleging his actions had insulted the Prophet Muhammad, said regional police chief Mushtaq Shah.
The case began Friday when Muhammad Faizan, a pharmaceutical company representative, visited Valiyani's clinic and handed out his business card. He said when the doctor threw the card away, Faizan went to police and filed a complaint that noted his name was the same as the prophet's.
Shah said police were investigating whether Valiyani should be charged with blasphemy.
If the doctor had been named Muhammad, would it be blasphemy to arrest him for blasphemy under Pakistan's blasphemy laws?
N.B. When Shariah violations, especially the blasphemy variety, is occurring at the rate of Leonid Meteor Shower in Pakistan and the rest of the so called "Muslim World", I don't see any point in keeping score in the title.
