Bilal Saeed, Saba Qamar summoned in court

Singer Bilal Saeed and Actress Saba Qamar were summoned by the court on September 3 over the matter of shooting a music video in the Wazir Khan mosque in Lahore.

The duo was recently criticised heavily on social media for using the historic Wazir Khan mosque as a prop in their music video for the song Qubool.

Under pressure from the social media and civil society groups, the two were then named in a first information report registered by the Akbari Gate police station.

Following the uproar, singer Bilal apologised to his fans. I would never in my wildest thought imagine doing something as offensive as this. Keeping Allah as my witness, I swear that neither did we dance, nor play music at the mosque. The mosque administration there can also confirm this.”

I would never in my wildest thought imagine doing something as offensive as this. Keeping Allah as my witness, I swear that neither did we dance, nor play music at the mosque. The mosque administration there can also confirm this.”

“We do realise that unintentionally, during taking a picture, we might have offended someone with our small move,” he added. “However, it was an unintentional mistake on our part. Just a small move for a picture. Saba and I are also humans, and like any other human beings who make mistakes, we ask Allah for his forgiveness. Allah, too, likes people who repent.”

“As a Muslim, if I was in your place, maybe I would also think the same. So we also apologise to you, and hope that you can let this go. As a realisation on our part, I am also removing the entire sequence from the video, and assure you that we won’t make such mistakes in the near future,” he reiterated.

I had never imagined my name would be associated with something like this. As a Muslim, I am extremely regretful of this and apologise on behalf of all of us, including Saba and our entire team.”
