Saeed Ahmed v. State (2015 SCMR 710)

If the prosecution sets up a motive that does not stand to reason and is not supported by evidence, the accused should not be sentenced to death.

Ifthikar Mehmood & Anr. v. Qaiser Ifthikar (2011 SCMR 1165)

Motive is a relevant factor towards determining the quantum of sentence. The motive of religious feelings can amount to compelling circumstances mitigating against a capital sentence.
