Police held responsible for mob murders

The murder of two young brothers Hafiz Mueez Butt and Muneeb Butt, who were stoned to death during the week has led to the suspension of 14 policemen.

The suspended officials include SHO Saddar police station inspector Rana Illays, sub inspector (SI) Gulzar Khan, four assistant sub inspectors (ASI) and eight other officials. The police officials were charged with negligence for failing to curb the torture of the two men last Sunday (August 15).

Out of the 14 men accused of negligence, five have been arrested by the police so far. According to the FIR, Moeez and Muneeb were going to visit their relatives in village Buttar-Sialkot, when some people caught them and raised an alarm that they were dacoits.

The crowd tortured them to death with stones, bricks, wooden sticks and iron rods. Later, they hung the dead bodies to a tree and tried to set them on fire.

The grieved family have demanded stern legal action against the concerned police officials in this regard. “Our sons were completely innocent. They were walking on the road when they were attacked,” said the boys’ father Sajjad Butt, adding that he held the police responsible for the incident.

Sajjad Butt’s family lives in Sialkot City’s Hajipura locality. Muneeb was a first year student at the Government Murray College and his younger brother Muneeb Butt, 16, was a ninth class student at a local school.

A large number of locals have come forward to give evidence regarding the innocence of the deceased. The family added that their sons were killed in a row over an old cricket match dispute.

Sajjad Butt has urged the Chief Justice of the Lahore High Court (LHC) Khawaja Muhammad Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif to ensure the early arrest of those responsible.

On Friday, following LHC chief justice’s suo motu notice of the incident, Pakistan Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhary also took suo moto notice of the brutal killings. The LHC chief justice adjourned the hearing of the case for two weeks, since the Supreme Court of Pakistan is also hearing the case now.

Meanwhile, District ameer Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Sialkot Hafiz Tahir Aslam , ameer JI Sialkot City  Shamasul Arifeen, former MPA Arshad Mehmood Baggu advocate affirmed that the young men were completely innocent and were merely walking along the road to get back home when they were attacked.

The Sialkot Saddar police is facing strong public criticism after the brutal killings. The District Police Officer (DPO) Waqar Ahmad Chohan after suspending the accused officials has now ordered a strict departmental probe against them. “No one will be let off. We are looking at the records of everyone in the station and will suspend everyone involved,” he said. The DPO warned that those charged with negligence would be brought to task.

Meanwhile, the Sialkot Saddar police have also registered a case against 17 accused people for torturing and killing the brothers.

The FIR has been lodged by Zarar Butt, uncle of the deceased youths. Cases have been registered against 17 men including Ali, Ameen, Aamir, Qaisar, Nasir, Jamil, Shaukat, Dilawar, Akbar and Hassan. Police have also claimed to arrest many of the accused.

    The scenes are so brutal .. and what is worse is there is a cameraman probably from Geo Shooting the whole thing .. There are atleast a 100 people watching the tied down kids being hit with planks begging for their life .. the police comes and doesnt stop anyone but rather watches it… when they are dead they are dragged and hung on poles.. and this is all happening in Sialkot…
    Its not just the police that let this happen .. the animals standing watching it without even trying to stop it are as much a part of it as anyone.. the camera guy shooting it is as well ..
    It is so barbaric that once you watch it you really feel like just going away.. I for one never believed we Pakistani’s would be retarding to such a state that too in the cities, where education, tolerance is a lot more than villages.. I dont know when something like this is happening where are all the Islamic preachings of all these people go, why couldnt anyone form the crowd step up and say enough.. absolutely sickened.. I can now understand the state this country is in and its going to get worse.Recommend

    absolute shame. Look at the towns people just watching and looking at the acts. None of them are human to do anything. Goes to show the type of people that are in that town. None of their parents told them to do something when injustice is done. Goes to show how their parents are and were brought up too. THey are animals equaly as the people that committed that murder. Every one of them. The police, the rescue people that are supposed to rescue, and the towns people, are all the same type of people that rule that town. Pathetic human beings, they are all accessories to murder. The ones who did the murder need to have the same punishment, and their parents ticketed for producing such children, and the ones who watched and did nothing need jail time too. That is the problem, there is no discipline, no integrity, no morals, no honesty, and they all say they are so called Muslims. What a shame, totally disgusted at Pakistani politics and the people behind these acts and the supporters who watched. I hope this is my badua, that every one of them suffer, the watchers, their families, their brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, and the rest, and those who support that crime suffer in the depths of hell. They all are responsible. If justice is not served now, then I hope god wreaks havoc on the families of the watchers, the people involved, the police, the human rescue employees who did nothing, and gives them the same pain and suffering those poor people who lost their two young sons went through. God always punishes evil, and everyone in that town, majority seems evil. What a shame, sharam karo, sharam karo.Recommend

We are worse than animals. I thought such horrors take place only in movies where mobs lynch while bystanders enjoy the show instead of stopping the brutes. Reality has hit hard and low. Am ashamed that am a Pakistani.

    no one came out because of the fear that they might also be declared accomplice, as usually does happen on the streets that the accomplices come forward to beat up their guy in order to eventually extricate’em. so much for nobody coming out..the thing is tomorrow i might be walking along and someone having grievances against me shouts that i am a dacoit and starts beating me up, chances are that i might end up like those two kids. why is there such indiffernce(i am not using the word “intolerance” because in this case the perpetrators are doing a planned act)on the part of the mob? to me, reason is the long experience of the people of injustice, corruption, and all the social evils. they are just at ease thinking that the beaters are true, and all that anger against the authorities came down on these two scapegoats.
    summary: a few people getting back at their opponents, mob letting out their anger by not intervening and satisfying their anger convincing themselves that those two WERE dacoits. in truth, they were just scapegoats…Recommend

    This was an utterly tragic and violent act carried out by those people on these 2 young lads. The scenes were just horrific, I really don’t know what to say. My heart was crying out for those 2 poor lads, it was just inhumane acts carried out by those vile people. Even the most well known dacoits and criminals are not punished like these poor kids were.

    The fact this was done in the blessed month of Ramadhaan and in the presence of many cannibal like people makes it very sad and truly tragic.

    In Pakistan unfortunately there is no justice I dare to think if those vile people watching and hitting the 2 lads will ever get punished.

    The country is literally in a heap of mess and total chaos with a corrupt govt, police officials. Indeed it is the reason due to the crimes of the many people in Pakistan that calamities just continue to face people there. Islam is a peaceful religion and this is not the way we behave no matter how severe or tough the circumstances may get.

    Indeed Allah does punish one and all for there acts and I hope those responsible for these brutal killings are punished severely.Recommend

    The scenes of brutality were at their highest peek in the last Sunday’s situation. The nation who cannot understand the Azab of Allah when the Azab is all around in the country, such nation has no moral grounds anymore. That is exactly the time of now is destined to us to receive all types of Zalalat, from top till bottom.

    The governance and security framework has been shattered because of the current and last decade governments. That’s why people did not step up to stop the vindictiveness, cause they were not sure what would happen to them.

    Zaman e Jahalat has taken over our nation, this can only stop by blood flowing revolution which happened in Iran and yes its going to certainly happen starting from the mountains of the north. Its just a matter of time and Insha Allah this nation will be cleansed from the dirt which have produced in our country.Recommend

As a leader or in-charge of Sialkot police this a complete failure of system, the suspension from position is not a punishment. This is a step to save them.

    We all are responsible for this tragic event by electing this good for nothing government, by watching this gruesome act as spectators, by killing these innocent boys and last but not least by allowing this murder being policemen and high officials. Why not to arrest these murderers and policemen and execute them in the same manner. This could only bring some confidence in the public.

    How can any Muslim or any mankind witness such a scene like this and stand there and do nothing to stop the people from doing this to any sole. Any person that was there to witness this can not call there self’s a Muslim and there are the biggest disgrace to Islam and the nation of Pakistan. May all our prayers go with the family and all the people who have gone of this world. The police including the public who witnessed what happen should be shot dead and burnt and not have a faunal and people responsible for this act should should get it ten times worse.

    I remember as a child the incident which happpened in the 80s when nursing mothers were made to walk naked, The culprits were jailed and then let loose. they had taken the new born child and banged him against the wall. People kept quite even then…..and this allowed injustice to keep prevailing.
    i request anyone out there to write an electronic petition to be signed by everyone to provide justice in this case ( i don’t know how to do it)If we don,t act now then we are part of that silent mob. more than 20 crore peole have watched the footage…how many more witnesses do we need and how many books do the judges need to consult.

    Please don’t whisper…. speak up now and fight for justice. please form a petition. The citizens should form a large enough pressure group to make sure that they are heard loud and clear and justice is delivered as, as justice delayed is justice deniedRecommend

    There is no question about this act being a barbaric one. There is a reason why people are not supposed to take the law in their hands. You cannot be judge, jury and executioner. Otherwise this is the result.

    Reading the comments up there I see a person saying he will gladly mete the same punishment himself to these people. I say, then you are no different than them. Demand justice via the right means or you are no different than that crowd handing out their version of whatever that was.

    Another person says every person in the crowd including their mother, father, sister, brother and basically their entire family should be hanged. Here is another example of the brutal mentality, of people who refuse to think. Justice is about punishing the wrong doer and not their whole family. Are you saying that if you brother stands in a mob and watches, someone has the right to hang you for it? Seriously?

    This is the kind of mentality that this nation needs to change. The we will kill these people mentality, the idea that we can play God with other people’s fate. Justice needs to be served not on the streets but in courts of law otherwise the result is right in front of everyone. Because then it becomes a matter of whose version of justice.Recommend

    All these people should be rounded up and beaten to death. Thats what they deserve and not only the people who were beating the kids but each and every person who was present there should be questioned. How inhumane can a person be, that you are standing there watching somebody inflict such pain and brutality on innocent lives and not utter a single word. There were little kids who were standing watching all this. I seriously dont know how these people can live with this for the rest of their lives, i watched the video clip on tv and i felt fear and disgust at what our people are capable of. This makes me seriously question what we have as a Nation. Our people are uneducated, filthy and disgusting. Who knew a time would come where there would be no value of human life, or moral values and ethics. All these values are what u are taught in the early years of your life and they always stay with you no matter what and this incident just makes me wonder if these people ever even had these values in the first place. Even if the Court or the Government cant give justice to these kids, at the end of the way we all know that this life is only temporary. These people will burn in hell for doing such a heinous act and standing their watching it and they wont be forgiven no matter what they do because the only two people who could actually get God to forgive them are the ones they beat to death with such brutality. May Allah forgive us all. AminRecommend

    i am a man from the uk my heart and eyes are crying. This act is so evil that i am glad i am a british born pakistani. I think justice should be done and the international outcry shall insha allah make sure of this.

    I think that the police officers should be sentenced to 15 years imprisonment minimum. However not many people have mentioned what the sentence should be for the filthy killers… I believe that they should be punished by death without clemency. My reasons for this is simple, the people who did this did so in cold blood, the way this is confirmed is because of the repeated blows to the deceased and the public lynchings of both brothers. Capital punishment is usually decided by circumstances surrounding the murder, and i dont need to retell you the circumstances. The fact that this murder was planned to be committed with humiliation in public proves that this is inhumane. I for one will be writing a letter to cheif justice and supreme court to request the death penalty for all those involved in the murder including those that even tied the ropes to the poor boys, and the police should be imprisoned for at least 15 years although i would prefer it if they got life sentence.

    In ramadan my dua is for the killers to get death penalty, this is my true dua and the police get a prison sentence of no less than 15 years.

    Inshallah this dua will become true, my fellow brothers who are also deeply sadened by this incident please do dua for the deceased and i suggest you all write letters to the cheif justice and supreme court requesting death penalty for all killers and minimum 15 years sentence for the police involvedRecommend

    All spectators are equally responsible in the murder and there is no need to counduct any enquiry after the video being aired. Now there shold be a verdict and it should not be anything less then execution of all teh same way they killed the 2 brothers. This is the only way we can stop the degeneration of our society. All the people present there should be beaten to death and the entire nation should be made to watch it live. Nobody dares in Saudi Arabia to do anything even remotely close to this just because they know law there is strict and in practice. People in Pakistan need to know that there is a fare legal system. If we do not reinforce law today…there will be someone threatening us tomorrow. Recommend

    The enitire Pakistani nation should pursue this case to the end. They should send the message to the city that the Pakistani are not only ashamed of them as Muslims and Pakistanis, but they should now boycott this city financially, trade-wise, and on social level to ket them know that what they have done, and watched with participation is not acceptable and the justice will be done to those two innocent lives. They people have killed the whole humanity. Pakistani nation should not let any pressure or lies from the police block or delay the justice that these ,animal-like and trained lynchers, and God-Forsaken bystanders,and the very corrupt and pathetic police have done. I would urge the families of thes ruthless people that if they want their city saved from the warth of God, they should help in locating the rest of the culprits and handing them over to the authorities for justice. Sisters, mothers, relatives of these brutal killers, this is your chance to clenase yourself, help hand over all involved in this murder of these two boys. The Media should publish opinions and school comments and on these boys, which we all know are good,and also trail everyone involved thru the videos and help them bring to justice.Recommend

    It’s really disturbing to watch the video being played on TV but its equally disturbing to hear comments from general public and our esteemed Minister of Interior. Our dear minister wants to hang the culprits not tomorrow but today exactly where these innocent souls were brutally murdered by a bunch of yahoo’s. On newspapers some readers are of the opinion that these sick yahoo’s should be taken to the same place and beaten with sticks until they are dead. My question is how is this different from what happened to the two teenagers? They were accused on the spot and executed on the spot. We are looking for a quick justice Taliban style. Most of us do not want to wait for the judicial process to takes it due course and look for instant results. No wonder we see this brutality all over Pakistan. Be it in Swat, Karachi or Sialkot lynching is the way to go. Its the mindset we share with the Taliban which result in these brutal acts taking place. I pray for these two brothers and also pray that this vigilante justice does not take the lives of anymore innocent Pakistani’s. Recommend

    This has to be investigated with real care. First and foremost it needs to be established whether the boys actually were innocent or not. To beat and kill in this manner is improper, way improper! To be killed BY the public is improper, to be killed IN public like this is improper, to kill children is improper. This is gone beyond the limits of a civilised society.

    If the boys were to blame, then we need to establish who did the beatings; was it the other dead person’s family? or was it a joblog on the streets who felt like going with the flow. Hmmm. If my child had been murdered by these two boys, I would have killed them (possibly I think). We need to establish the facts, we need to not jump to conclusions like that mob on the streets did. We need to FIRST and FOREMOST do a proper investigation…get to the truth and see what really happened. See, the family should be allowed to take revenge. That is if they are 1000% sure that these two boys killed their child. What is wrong here is that any person on the street should be allowed to do the killings, because we are talking about boys, very young men who had lives in front of them to repent for what they did.

    If however it is as it seems….that is that the two boys were innocent then we need to bring to justice every single person who was there present. Have them tortured for their actions as a reminder of their excessive actions. We need to send prayers for the two innocent dead brothers.Recommend

Every one of them deserves the death penalty to rid our society of such menace.

    We live in sad moments. The world within has collapsed. The water that has devastated us should have been in our reservoirs and in our dams. Our country should have been excited about the levels in our dams and adjust canals. Picnics should be taking place. Peace and tranquility prevailing. Birds chirping and children playing openly in the streets. This is the picture of Pakistan I had anticipated. But the papers and television channels show a different and horrid side. This Pakistan is equivalent to hell. Children die innocently and waters seep into homes and dreams. This is not a country. We now live in times and environments similar to the times when Hitler gathered millions of Jews and started the annihilation of a complete nation. Genocide comes to my mind. Sometimes it takes anger; sometimes it takes resentment and sometimes the lust of power and greed. Name in what you may, the people of Pakistan are facing genocide. And the people who are continuing this massive scale of innocent killings are unknown.

    I became very sad when I heard about the incident and saw the video. The murderers have committed a brutal heinous crime of cruelty and callousness. I pray to Allah that may the departed souls of the two brothers rest in peace in heaven. May Allah bless them. I pray that The Almighty Allah gives severe punishment to the criminals of this incident, including the police and others who stood and watched and did not stop the killing. They were all equal part in the murder of the two brothers. Allah is the Best Avenger of their criminal and evil deeds.Recommend

    In the month of mercy, No mercy was shown. While the crazed mob bled the youth of their lives, the crowd opened its fasts with their blood. Under what justification was this fatwah given, in which gods name did they make this sacrafice?
    It is said that the state of the muslim ummah cannot be judged by the best of us, but by the worst amongst us. This is sad day for all Pakistani’s and muslims worldwide. May their parents find peace through Dua. God bless you all who pray for these brothers and their family and may all those guilty of this crime pray for their punishment in this world and not Ahkhira.Recommend

    Dear Readers,
    Such a shocking incident took place in almost the hub of industrial city. How tragic and barbaric act by the villagers and our defenders, Police! I have a few incidents in which I have to come across the local police. It is my strong belief that our police is corrupt, incapable and work only to protect the criminals. Our administration also provides shelter and protection to corrupt police officials. There is a law of jungle in the country and it is moving towards bloody revolution. Our politicians always make hue and cry for establishment of democracy but it is my question from them that ” does such acts in society represent democracy or barbarism?” How can you favour such system in which there is no accountability, punishment for bad acts and reward for good actions? what a dirty image our nation has left all over the world. Have you seen such level of brutality even in Gontanamobay? What kind of nation we are………………………………….?????????????? Recommend

    The criminals involved in this incident have committed a heinous crime of barbarism and have reached the extremity of cruelty and callousness. How sad it is to respect life and then to kill innocent young boys in such a brutal way in the Holy month of Ramzan? My eyes were full of tears. The brutal criminals should be publicly hanged to prevent such cowardly acts of barbarism. Our religion Islam is so beautiful. Every person has a right to live in the Islamic society with dignity, respect and protection even the non-muslims. So why did anyone not speak and protest when two innocent muslim boys were being beaten to death. Rescue 1122, the police did not stop this incident and were equal part of this heinous crime. The mob killing these innocent boys was committing a criminal act of barbarism.Recommend

    “And who saved the life of one, it shall be as if he saved the life of all mankind” Al-Quran
    Why did not any muslim man have the moral ethics and values to save these innocent young boys from the murderous attacks of a bunch of criminals, a notorious mob or gang lynching these innocent boys mercilessly to death. Their repeated attacks of savagery were like cannibals.Is there the law of the jungle in this country? I am a young lady in my thirties but if I was there I would have made every effort to save these innocent lives. Allah has ordained the muslims to respect the fellow muslims with regard to their dignity, integrity and physical security as well the security of their belongings. The best among the muslims is he who is benefitting for his fellow human beings. The bunch of criminals including the mob, the police and rescue 1122 who were equal part of the heinous crime should all be punished for this criminal act of savagery. They should be hanged publicly.Recommend

    Pakistan is still in the pre-islamic era when daughters were buried alve at their birth. This is a horror story of human beings treating each other like they are hungry for each other’s blood. They are looking to hear an ugly blame..and believe without finding the facts. This nation was formed on the basic human priniciples and religious freedom, even after 63 years of that, we have not learned lessons. Instead, we have gone back in times of ‘stone ages.” It’s high time people wake up and behave like humans, otherwise Allah will wipe them like the Qaum of Aa’d and Thalmood as mentioned in many places in the Noble Qur’an. Oh Allah! Guide these people who are on the brink of death. Have mercy on them. Ameen Recommend

    When I watched the video I was totally shocked, how the innocent young lads were being beaten by the cruel terrorists and no one from the mob came forward to rescue them. Hafiz Muneeb and Moeez are the Sheedan-e-Sialkot. Their blood will not go waste. It will give a new passion to the Nation, It will prove a harbinger of success against lawlessness in the country. I request the authorities to take strict action against the culprits so that no such incident could take place in future. All the responsible for this tragic event should be hanged. I condole with the parents of SHEEDAN-E-SIALKOT.
    May Allah Shower His blessings on them and give the courage and patience to their parents to bear this loss.Ameen!Recommend

    very brutal and disgusting incident.
    all who took part in the killing,everysingle person who hit them,the drivers of the tracter,the men who helped tie them up,the police who were present
    everyone of them is responsible.
    in my book all 18 people plus all police men at the scene deserve only one punishmernt,
    that is they should be beaten to death and then hanged.
    i know im being extreme,but thats the only way to get message accross to public and police of pakistan.
    if the above action is taken by the government,i can almost guarantee no one in pakistan will ever kill anyone this way.
    but knowing pakistani government they will not do justice,then the family of the boys will do justice themselves by taking law into own hands.
    what people dont realise is its easy to murder or hurt someone but the consequences must be faced.
    your choice pakistani government,either you deliver justice or the boys family will.Recommend

    I agree with you all 100% & wish a quick punishment for all killers/policemen & also the watchers.
    Waiting for judgment could lead to save killers lives. (Raat Gai Baat Gai). do something for quick punishment.
    Remember dont abuse to a nation ever, it is strictly prohibited in islam to point a nation as there may be some innocent people too like mugheez & muneeb, otherwise you will have to sorrow to each person of the pointed nation on the judgement day else you can not enter to the Heaven.
