Additionally, the Supreme Court clarified misconceptions regarding the abolition of collective punishments for crimes against religion in Pakistan. The court emphasized that the abolishment of collective punishments does not apply when the First Information Report (FIR) is accepted in its original form. Furthermore, the statement highlighted that the impact of abolishing collective punishments has been inaccurately portrayed.

Furthermore, the announcement underscored that even if allegations are admitted in the FIR, the case falls under the purview of the Army Act 1932, Section 5. Under this act, the publication of prohibited books can result in a six-month imprisonment.
