BAHAWALPUR: In a harrowing incident of mob justice, hundreds of people accused a ‘deranged’ man of sacrilege, mercilessly beat him and burnt him alive in southern Punjab, police said on Wednesday.
The incident took place in Chanighot area of Bahawalpur on Tuesday evening. Residents saw a man allegedly throwing pages from the Holy Quran onto the street. Local police took him into custody and put him in the lockup.
The news spread like a forest fire in the neighbourhood – and soon a frenzied mob gathered outside the Chanighot police station baying for blood.
Police couldn’t stand up to the furious and violent crowd who got hold of the alleged blasphemer, described by one police official as deranged, and brutally tortured him.
Some officers fired tear gas canisters to disperse the mob – but the emotionally charged people refused to hand over the alleged blasphemer and instead turned against the police officers, according to Ghulam Mohiuddin Gujjar, the station house officer (SHO) of Chanighot police station.
Nine police officers, including SHO Gujjar and DSP Rana Naveed Mumtaz, were injured while trying – though unsuccessfully – to rescue the man.
The mob burnt down several police vehicles, including DSP Mumtaz’s four-wheeler, before getting hold of the man, who has not been identified.
Once the unidentified man was in the mob’s custody, he was dragged to the Chanighot Chakar (roundabout), where he had allegedly desecrated the Holy Quran, doused him in petrol and set him on fire.
SHO Gujjar said they have registered two FIRs against 1,500-2,000 people.
DPO Bahawalpur Ahmad Ishaque Jehangir told The Express Tribune that police reinforcement has been sent to the area to bring the situation under control. He added that they were investigating the incident.
Jehangir said that an additional police force had been deployed in Chanighot police station to avoid any untoward incident. The man’s body was shifted to a local hospital for autopsy.

Sherry Rehman has introduced a bill to amend the Blasphemy law , you all need to support this call your elected people and write comments to make a change
I thank my Christian God every day that I am not Muslim and that I don't live anywhere near Pakistan.
If you think Allah is upset about someone burning a book, just think how he feels about someone burning a person.
quite frankly, the people who carried out this heinous act are barbaric savages and the police are nothing short of cowardly accessories. what a horrible place :-(
Religious fools react this way to blasphemy because they believe god is watching and will be pleased with them for it. It all comes down to people instinctively being self serving. Religion is a way to satisfy their ego. "Look at me oh lord, reward me!"
Yet these people have nuclear weapons and a space program. Yes sir, we are certainly headed toward oblivion.
This is what you expect when you try to uphold 1st century philosophy, in a world full of 21st centrury facts.
Fact is that the Malang was follower of Qalander, he just returned from Qalandar's Uris. No mob of Muslims but the mob instigated by Malik Ishaq (leader of Sipah Sahiba who is working (under shadow of Punjab Government and the Chief Justice of Pakistan) against Pakistan and Humanism. The human right activists, print, social and electronic media is salient on this issue. Let is go indepth of this inhuman action and FIR should be lodged against Chief Minister Punjab and the Chief Justice of Pakistan who had released Malik Ishaq, Hafiz Saeed and many other terrorist and licensed them to kill Qalanadris, Shia and Bralvis.
"A heart without kindness is not a heart of a Muslim." Imran khan said it a few days back in an Islamic conference. Islam is a peaceful religion, which teaches, love, sacrifice, justice, and humanity along side many other things. These are the basics of humanity. The gov has failed entirely in educating, managing and securing public rights and properties.
I think God is not so much offended about one of His books being burned as compared to his children.
Quran is not our property ppl, its Allah's and it is upto Him as to how to protect His word. man thinks himself as God and thats what happens when we all try to be God. this also doesnt mean that we should not stop blasphemy as like all other religions our religion is aso sacred but brutality is not a part of Islam. mentally stable or not, we are no one to decide and justify what shud have happened to that man, let the law deal with them and if they dont get punished in this world, Allah will eventually punish them.
Do you know word Boson is named afetr an Indian scientist named Bose? You can search Internet for more information, why it is named after him.
Shame shame people of Bahawalpur. The person who does this act is known to have been insane and in spite of already being in custody is taken out tortured and finally burnt alive. Acording to me this mob was more insane than the poor insane who alledgedly burnt the Holy Quran. Therefore they are the actual blasphemers. I do not what is causing the masses who claim to be good Muslims to become so irrational and kill in madness? I will now hear from many friends that these people do not have any religion and things like that. Can someone show us the way to stop all this madness.
@Mirza: You do realise that these fanatics are regular people. You employ them in your home. Right now, look around. This is democracy. It doesn't matter if burning a guy is moral or immoral. If the public wants it, it will happen. What are you going to do, throw this online copy of the Tribune at them? We are the bigots. The public want to burn a guy, let them burn the guy! Who are we to impose morality. I don't want people burnt on the streets, but I also respect opinions of people who think differently. Be afraid, be very afraid.
In fact I myself never came across that part. Could you give me the exact reference please?
@Muhammad Siddique: Can a person in Pakistan have his/her own opinion about a particular book. Whichever way one looks at it, a book is a book nothing more. And no book is worth a human life.
@Danish Masood: Danish being muslim you cannot understand what is happened is write or wrong. according 2 your fellow people 2000+ gathered at a call from masque to burn this retarded man... see they are referred as true muslim by your country man.. so I am in confused state if they are true muslim then what you are... Under logical aspect both cannot be true unless other one is false.. I am also confused how many version of Quran exists... which teach making peace for some people and making piece of some one.... I stronhgly believe if today gabriel would have need to reverse anything the first thing she does is Quran and the last thing is Quran..
E.T today I have boarded number of message I couldn't see any of my message in your blog.. but atleast be transparent.. dont be in sub-human state
@Michael_jogi: Michael baggy, fool first see the root cause of problem before looking at the problem.
Godra train burining --> reciprocated in term of Gujarat incident. simple logic dude try to under ---- stand.
Michael, but sadly 200 Million of major are silent majority... they only comment over here but cannot take their head stright over against this couse in real time against minor barbarians... this is what put people in shame....
@Insomniac: Why not the Blasphemy cases against the people who give fatwa in these cases. We do not forget the incident of 2006 in which clerics tattered the Quaranic verses written on the amended bill of Hudood Ordinance. MQM has raised the voice but unfortunately no other party was with them. http://archives.dawn.com/2006/08/23/local10.htm
HYDERABAD: MQM calls for blasphemy case against Fazl, Qazi -DAWN - Local; August 23, 2006 archives.dawn.com.
The alleged blasphemer may have beena mentally deranged person, but the mob was morally deranged. It pathetic that our mullahs may have made the mob believe that all of them will be rewarded in the hereafter for this act.
@chacha: islam is tolerance, i am not a muslim but i know this much.
@Gulam: then you are in the wrong company.
@Allah Ditta Pakistani: It is high time to eradicate blasphemous law to save pakistan
@Sindhi_Pakistani: ACAs an ideology, Islam is not entitled to equal respect and acceptance, because ideas do not carry equal moral weight. Islam is not simply a belief about God. It is a word that means submission. Islam is a set of rules that define a social hierarchy in which Muslims submit to Allah, women submit to men and all non-Muslims submit to Islamic rule

Pathetic. Very shameful act. I am shocked that how can this incident happened in the presence of police?
This will not end until the blasphemy laws are stricken down.
Also, violence and/or assault against another person for ANY reason must be severely punished in accordance with the law. Obviously that is not the case today in Pakistan.
Oh the irony....mob burns alive a man for burning the Quran and they say it was crystal clear that the man was mentally unstable!!!!!!!!!!
Just shows that pakistani society is stressed and on a short fuse. An extremely frustrated society behaves so abnormaly. most bloggers have expressed distress and disgust. That is a silver lining on a grey sky. Hope things dont get worse. Even Indians are feeling as sad as pakistanis on this issue.
@Mohammad Ali Siddiqui: "No Muslim will tolerate that Holy Quran should be burned in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan."
No mulsim will tolerate this, no muslim will telorate that. And if they do not toelrate then they immediately burn the man or if he is not in immediate vicinity then release a fatwa for his death
Get the drift ! Despite the greatness of the Islamic religion, Lack of Tolerance is being perceived, as a muslim trait but the rest of the world
Bahawalpur mob justice: ‘Blasphemer’ burnt alive by mob as police looked on
Misleading title....9 policeman got injured while trying to fend off a crowd of 1500......you guys need to stop being sensationalist and report facts.
A mere allegation of blasphemy is good enough for a man/women to be lynched?
@ Mohd Ali Siddique, Look at your name and see what you are saying, Thats really shamefull. Who has the proof that person torched actually did that. May be they were just rumors. Even if he did there is no law to burn people on the roads. Mullahs will eat this religion one day.
Why blame the mullahs. Didn't your home minister / advise say that if he would shoot a Blashphemer himself!!
@Sky: These words were apparently quoted by Jinnah's physician in his autobiography.
The police should have open fire on the mob before they got hold of the prisoner
Grow up please the Quran also says dont KILL . dint you read that part . That Man was not in his senses so it does nto mean you people have to burn him & Murder him
Is that what the Holy Quran teaches people like you ? its a SHAME that you have not understood what our Holy book says .
Shame again for the nation and state of Insanity among people and reminder this is not the first time, we as a nation don't cherish Human Value, While my beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has pardoned his worse enemies himself, Allah ne Farmaya jo raham nahi karta us par raham nahi kiya jaata, May Allah show us the right path and true Islam.
After reading this I'm deeply ashamed of even being born as human. It'd be better euthanize those as soon as found deranged in Pakistan.
@Mohammad Ali Siddiqui:
Let the court decide that. How can the mob and mullah judge it ? This is anarchy. Dont ever justify mob violence.
Finally, finally, we are having Quaid-e Azam's Pakistan: One that he envisaged, and others dreaded.
According to Dawn
While the man was being questioned, some people started making announcements over MOSQUE LOUDSPEAKERS, urging residents to go to the police station and punish him. Within hours, thousands gathered outside and demanded the man be handed over to them. Gujar said police tried to protect him, but the mob turned violent. They burned several police vehicles and wounded seven officers before grabbing the man and dragging him into the street, where he was beaten to death and his body set on fire.
This clearly shows religion did play a role in this murder.
I would just remind the readers here that insulting the beloved Prophet (PBUH) and the Holy Quran are not acts like any other. They lead to consequences not like any other.
Just shows how desperate and ruthless people have become to book their tickets to Jannat!
It's too bad all of the Korans in the world aren't burned. As long as Islam exists, with its' moronic and barbaric "values", there is little hope for peace and prosperity.
@Kamal: Where did you find his last words and regrets? Can you share any links?
A religion is judged by deeds and behaviors of its followers as a society. It is judged by what is being ‘practiced’ by its followers today rather than some glorified history or delusional interpretations by some individuals which are never put in actions by the majority of its followers. PERIOD.
'May His Soul Rest In Peace (Ameen)'.
People are looking for excuse to kill each other. Its about time we should roll these Mullahs up and throw them in 'Arabian Sea'.
@Sindhi_Pakistani: Every Muslim always proclaims that Islam is a religion of peace and forgiveness but incidents such as this and there are many show the lie that this statement is. There are laws for punishing such behavior but Pakistan has become a very primitive society and it keeps getting worse day by day. Pull back from the precipice is my advice to all Muslims.
According to BBC
Police say they are trying to identify the victim, who was said to be mentally unstable.
"The man had no idea what was going on," said an official.
"While he was in our custody, he kept laughing and chanting."
A case has been registered against unknown attackers. No arrests have been made yet.
@Praful R Shah: And u prove how ignorant you are by associating a single incident of madness with a population of 1.5 billion people pity should I say that how intolerant whole India was when they killed thousands on Gujarat riots
@True Muslim Paki: So burning a not retarded man who commits blasphemy is allowed and acceptable according to you ? No regard for personal state of mind of an individual who acts upon instinct and flash of anger and not necessarily to harm anyone ? Your thinking indicates there is no room for considering such facts!! It is more shameful that "a belief system" needs to be defended at cost of human life. Have you tried putting your hands on candle for more than few seconds ? Imagine the pain having your whole body in flame. What kind of hatred and dead sensitivities towards human life you may be carrying that you have no apathy for such act and you are indeed trying to build an excuse for those who did this henious crime ? If there is any justice in Pakistan and any regard to humanity, those people who set the men on fire should be hanged and the ones who were standing there enjoying the unfortunate & sad tamasha of human bonfire needs to be behind bars (prison or mental ) for good.
@Sindhi_Pakistani: "There are state laws for blasphemy and it is duty of state to investigate whether one is really involved in it or not. .....People will settle their scores using blasphemy as excuse. Pls state organs wake up. Nation is burning".
State is made of people more or ;less like this community. Don't forget .... Mumtaz Qadri, murderer of Salman Taseer, showered with rose petals by Lawyers .... Asia Bibi is still in Jail for Blasphemy. Majority of people charged with Blasphemy are minorities. I remember a doctor was charged with Blasphemy because he threw away "Visiting Card" of a man named Mohammed.
This is Pakistan. Only few days back there was a news, some Pakistani lawyers beat up a policemen right .in the court.
Islam is in danger because of Muslims , not because of Non-muslims.....This act shows who is mentally sick and how much faith they have in religion . This is burning example of fundamentalism .
It happens only in Pakistan. What a lawless country.
we should be ashamed of such incidents. Try to spread the awareness in your neighbourhood talk to every one from your servants to your grocery guy. We have to do this in order to save our nation which is going towards anarchy.
If the victim was a woman and burnt alive 4 blasphemy like the man in bahawalpur, every1 wud surely be vocal against it. I bet!
as it is stated that the man accused is mentally unstable so this barbaric act is real injustice let the court handle the case taking the law in your hands is not appreciable, mob should be arrested, then let the court decide
Frightening. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the Pakistan of people like Mumtaz Qadri. The floodgates have opened now.
@KL: We are going back to 2550BC.
Why? What happened in 2550 BC?
@Saleem: "And they call themselves muslim follower of a religion that literally means peace. Shame for the entire nation. We have turned into barbarians"
No, it means submission, or to be more precise then submission to the will of god. The rest of your statement is however, true.
We are going back to 2550BC.
The government must brought all the perpetrators to justice even if they are in thousands...Otherwise such kind of brutality shall never stop!!!
Thats what happens if you vote for Conservatives. Pakistan needs liberal parties like PPP, MQM and ANP. And that too in 2/3rd majority so that they repeal Blasphemy laws. Let the parliament be supreme and not PCO judges or army. Every problem will be solved and result is Jinnah's Pakistan.
the views of the 'mullahs' on this is actually the same as the person who got the most 'recommendations' on this comments thread ( i.e sindhipakistani) please read: http://www.bbc.co.uk/urdu/pakistan/2011/01/110116muftinaeemintw_ha.shtml
it is in urdu.
@Mohammad Ali Siddiqui:
Will you participate in killing or burning a Human Being alive no matter what he-she did? Your comments indicate you may
When ANY religion has to be propped up to survive with the support of insane mobs, it ceases to be much of anything, let alone a religion.
Dear fellow readers Don't get me wrong I do condem the acts of violence in any circumstances but as I'm a student still and my observation of things may be less realistic but I've a few of questions from every 1
1stly is that right to make gross generalisations and blame a nation of 200 million for the acts of a few 2ndly Is it necessary to assume that whatever actions were carried out by the mob are actually in line with the doctrines of a religion if they aren't then why some of us are blaming the book or relegion to appease a vast number of peaceful majority of Muslims Moreover I've deduced that last time the generalisation took place in Europe it was by a man with a funny moustache u know the name and what as a result of it as well do please use brains and do give feedback and correct me if I'm wrong Regards
And they call themselves muslim follower of a religion that literally means peace. Shame for the entire nation. We have turned into barbarians.
Really Shocking to hear that a abnormal man set on fire. Any body can define me where in Quran mentioned or any hadeees which allow us to burn a person who mishandle holy Quran and accused person disable and abnormal??? Very Shocking
In Pakistan only two kinds of people would commit so called "blasphemy" A. Mentally Ill B. Suicidal In both cases the law should protect them and not the other way round.
@Hatu: may b u r mate as u are definitely sick by generalising whole nation with a few extremidts @Cautious: Mate Pakistan is a country of 200 million u know and u can help in by not generalising those 200 million with a couple of hundred or thousands or u ain't any different from those extremists ur self
@Michael_jogi: Agree. But will us not criticizing is going to help more or those 200 million people rising against the few thousands who are taking down your whole nation back to stone age and barbaric way of living. Choices are clear. And by far the common Pakistani has (may be reluctantly ) made their choice.
This is not what Quran teaches. It's shameful that these people became the prosecutors, the judge and the executioners without giving this man (mentally disabled) the opportunity to defend himself. Acts like these provide the misconception to the world about the religion which is a shame.
I read about one man burning Quran few days before in some online news. Man was in police custody. News mentioned man was mentally unstable and their was a mob demanding his release so that they could kill him.
If some police official released this man to the mob, the official should be charged with murder.
Police failed to protect a mentally unstable man, what a shame.
Blasphemy law has no room in democratic way of living. Such law should be abolished. Human life and freedom is far more valuable than religion and religious scriptures.
Acts of both that man and mob needs to be condemned ...
@Cautious: Mate Pakistan is a country of 200 million u know and u can help in by not generalising those 200 million with a couple of hundred or thousands or u ain't any different from those extremists ur self
A nation of unstable people kill an unstable person. I am sure the President and PM will "take notice" ! And that will be news headline tomorrow.
Action to amend dual nationality law to suit parliamentarians is taken in hours but no action taken in years on the misuse of the blasphemy law because it does not concern the law makers personally - SHAME ON THEM.
Oh God, how could these people burn a mentally unstable man in the presence of police. I am shocked.
The need of the hour is for us to look at this calmly and to wait for more information to emerge about this hideous crime. We don't know much about the victim, such as his own religious background.
Of course, that will not change how disgusting this savagery is, but it is important nonetheless: if he was a Muslim, then we have once again seen an incident of unbelievable barbarity, and if he was a non-Muslim, not only have we seen unbelievable barbarity, we have also once again utterly failed our religious minorities.
Praying for Pakistan and the loved ones of this poor man,
Pakistan is a lawless country and the government is abetting it by doing what they do best to loot the country and amass the looted wealth in Swiss and other offshore banks. Those who are involved in lynching should be brought to justice and make an example of them for future violator of laws of the country. When the head of the State and government violate the laws blatantly then what could you expect from the masses. Pakistan has been going backward since Zia's time.Keep it up and you people will have no country left to do these sort of things.
We are a sick nation and burden on humanity.
@Mirza. Unfortunately it's becoming more clear that the "ordinary Pakistani Muslim" is closer to the Taliban extremist than your ideal Muslim. Those ordinary Pakistani's don't raise their own voices nor vote for people who condemn these atrocious acts.
Us Sindhis need to wake up and stop this disease from spreading in our province. Altaf Hussain's secular MQM should also participate.
Look at what they do to poor Rinkle Kumari!
They burned a man (who was mentally unstable) alive who was 'ACCUSED' of burning the Quran. How on earth could they not see the contradiction on that!?
This is good news for the enemies of Pakistan. They are rubbing their hands with glee and smiling at the moral deterioration of Pakistan... the end is close. When a country is economically destroyed, it will still survive. When morals are gone, it is finished for good. Any number of "atam bums" wont help.
@Mohammad Ali Siddiqui:
"No Muslim will tolerate that Holy Quran should be burned in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan."
And lynch and incinerate alive themselves instead of handing over the accused to police for a fair trial. Wonder if education can change our medieval mindset.
Sorry to say I am not surprised, disgusted yes but not surprised. How long can we deny that a war has been imposed upon ordinary Pakistani Muslims by the fanatics and terrorists? Those talking about Suo Motu and other actions for justice, it is not a decades old political case or a manufactured Memo case, it is killing of an innocent man by fanatics and not imp. BTW, we still love to keep Qadri as hero and feed him in jail and his trial would never finalize like many other cases in our court system. Not even an animal let alone a human in any country should be treated like this.
This is a newest addition in most Pakistanis' vocabulary recently "Suo Moto" My bathroom flush is clogged, I was the CJ to take a suo moto, the rickshaw driver is demanding more money, I want the CJ to take suo moto, a bird took a crap on my head I want the CJ to take a suo moto.
Well said Babloo
Laws are made to protect men from other men, not to protect God from humans. God is strong enough to take care of himself.
Couldn't have put it better myself.
words fail me to describe this incident. I just feel sickened by it. What on earth are the authorities doing? This NEEDS to be stopped and dealt with.
Only a secular Pakistan can protect its people.
Such ignorance and intolerance in the name of. God, How can such Muslims be respected for their views of Islam. if only these ignorant ones could try to understand the book rather than just recite it.
Complete insanity! Simply no other word or explaination for this craziness.
It seems an appropriate epitaph to pakistan - on a day when they should be celebrating Pakistan's unmatchable contribution to the Higgs boson discovery -
Slightly disappointed with ET - on a day when they should have had Abdus salam on the homepage and his contribution outlined by an eminent physicist like hoodhbhoy - you have chosen to ignore the one great personality of the sub continent - I scanned the television channels and all they were talking about was the consignment of trucks to afghanistan - the only mention of abdus salam was made on Indian television
There is a strong need to spread awareness regarding blasphemy and laws associated with it. these naive people have no idea what its all about.
So true. The world is busy doing scientific discoveries and look at us.
Let me put my head in the sand and ignore how it feels to be burn and tortured by an angry mob of barbarians.
@Babloo: That was a very powerful and very valid point you made...that laws are made to protect men from other men, not God from human beings. Kudos! I hope many more people start to think like you
Mr C.J where is the SUO MOTO Why it is reserved for your personal choice
on a day when the world is celebrating the discovery of a new particle (similar to Higgs Boson) our countrymen are busy doing this
@Ahmed HM This has been reported in Jang, BBC urdu service and Dunya tv. http://jang.com.pk/jang/jul2012-daily/04-07-2012/u112277.htm
Shocking and barbaric. Such an act of senseless and evil cruelty.
I don't support to burn any blasphemy accused. He should be handed over to police for investigation. When we go through some Ahadees, it come to know that the Shariyet doesn't apply on Majzoob (unstable persons)
@Allah Ditta Pakistani: In my opinion, your question is is right, but different from the actual issue.
A society imparts its values to new generation through the system of education. Our anger at incidents like these must motivate us to rebuild our dysfunctional public schools, so that we can teach our kids tolerance and respect for law.
Oh my God, this is pure illiteracy. No one has the right to take the law in their own hands.
As this got published in ET, we definitely need to verify the sources. Such type of non sense giver our cynical liberals (I mean ET) more chances to indirectly target the Blasphemy Law.
The dark age of medieval Europe has found a very welcoming and hospitable environment in Pakistan. After this and many such similar incidents, we have no right to call ourselves civilized people. Utterly despicable and shameful.
Just the previous day there was an editorial on ET on extremism sweeping the Islamic world, and now this! The solution is sensible and secular minded Muslims taking a firm stand purely on religious basis against this sort of act. They should claim their Islam, if they don't then extremist minded people will fill the vacuum. A secular stand may impress the readers of ET, but not the mob and their mullahs.
Laws are made to protect men from other men, not to protect God from humans. God is strong enough to take care of himself.
Where are the conservatives here, any comments? How would you defend this now?? Or this is another piece of news to malign Islam and Muslims?
These ignorant people does not know the value of Humans ...So-called Muslims, who follow Prophet Muhammad, who said, "killing of one person is equivalent to massacre of entire humanity"........
Pakistan government should amend these stupid and baseless law of blasphemy, which is being used as tool of torture......According to Pakistani constitution, every member of state is free to practice his/her faith.......Criticisms are healthy part of societal growth....It seems these so-called Mulla's faith become weak and trying protect their ill actions by torturing their opponent voices....
Sooner or later, Mullas will face a fate, when extreme clergies faced similar fate in Europe a fight between church and state...
Insanity, that will consume the state itself.
Utter barbarianism. Ignorance is even worse. Government must repeal these barbarian blasphemy laws asap and give exemplary punishment to the perpetrators.
I am sorry to say but half the people I know would approve of this act.
emphasized text"It was “crystal clear” that the man who set the Holy Quran on fire was mentally unstable" I feel the fact is otherway round.
No judge, jury or trial? Obviously no suo moto on this extraordinary act of human rights violation.
An Angry Mob Lynched a Man and then burned him Alive, and its another day in the land of Pak and Pure.
I do wonder if this mob actually knew what Islam stands for and what Quran teaches us. I do wonder if even 50% of this mob had read Quran regularly with the objective of understanding the verses before burning a human being alive. Shame Shame.
@ Every One,
Every Pakistani does not obeys the principles laid down by Quran, so should we start burning each other.
Awareness is the solution... And nothing in the world but education brings the awareness
Islam DOES NOT teach this ,the uneducated barbaric MULLAHS are responsible for brain washing the uneducated !
RIP. There is no excuse for such a barbaric act especially since the perpetrator was mentally unstable. Now I wonder who was mentally unstable.
There are state laws for blasphemy and it is duty of state to investigate whether one is really involved in it or not. But who has given right to any one to breach the law and kill some one in the name of blasphemy. This is utter non sense and state should ACT against such people, otherwise such fanaticism will burn whole Pakistan. People will settle their scores using blasphemy as excuse. Pls state organs wake up. Nation is burning.
