Peshawar Resident Receives Life Sentence for Holy Quran Burning
A Peshawar resident has been sentenced to life in prison for burning the Holy Quran in the Khazana area five years ago. The court found him guilty of this offense without any doubt.

The incident was reported in September 2018, and the accused initially claimed he did it to provoke others to kill him, but later retracted his confession during the trial. The court rejected claims of torture and stated that the accused had become cynical due to personal issues and wanted to end his life by committing the act.
