Pakistani Mob Beats Man to Death & Torches His Body For Burning Koran

An angry mob stormed a police station in southern Pakistan, dragged off a man held for allegedly desecrating the Koran and beat him to death, police said on Saturday. (XIN)

A mob in southern Pakistan stormed a police station and beat a prisoner to death. Then they torched his body. This was after he was accused of burning a Koran.
FOX News reported:

A mob in southern Pakistan stormed a police station to seize a mentally unstable Muslim man accused of burning a copy of Islam’s holy book, beat him to death, and then set his body afire, police said Saturday.

The case is likely to raise further concerns about the country’s harsh blasphemy laws, which can result in a death sentence or life in prison to anyone found guilty. Critics say an accusation or investigation alone can lead to deaths, as people take the law into their own hands and kill those accused of violating it. Police stations and even courts have been attacked by mobs.

Local police official Bihar-ud-Din said police arrested the man on Friday after being informed by residents that he had burned a Koran inside a mosque where he had been staying for a night.

An angry mob of more than 200 people then broke into the police station in the southern town of Dadu and took the accused man, who they say was under questioning. Din said police tried their best to save the man’s life but were unable to stop the furious crowd.

    Yeah and 5000 witches are killed in Africa each year by christians. What’s up with that ? Most are children and the christians believe them to cause traffic accidents and bad weather. In Africa witch hunts are real, and often fatal. Should religions be judged by the good they do? or the harm ?

  • That’s just typical peace-loving behaviour mandated by Quran, Sira and Haddith.

    Nothing to see there.

    ………and in Israel………

    An IDF soldier on inside base perimeter duty had his firearm stolen right out of his hands by “Arabs”.

    Nothing to see there either.

    Move along.

    #2, huck,

    Please show us the Biblical references to ordering the murder of those merely accused of witchcraft, or any actual crime for that matter.

    islam commands the murder of anyone who merely DISAGREES with them.

    Your attempt at moral, legal, or any other equivalence between islam and any legitimate civilization is as bankrupt as islam itself.

    you mean this is news? thats normal in pakistan, doesnt even get reported in there newspapers.

    And where do you get the idea that the witches being burned in Africa are being burned by Christians? Africa is a huge mish-mah of religions- including Islam, whcih allows the judiciary in Saudi Arabia, after a fair trial of couse, to execute them.

    More likely, the burnings are being done by animists, or followers of other native religions.

    When did this happen? Friday night, after services? What’s the name of the cleric involved?

    Unfortunately, the Bible can be used to justify just about anything, especially if one cherry picks one’s quotations (which many, many people do). If one looks at Leviticus 20, Deuteronomy 18 and Isiah 47 (there may be others but those are the ones I know off-hand) one could certainly see them as condemning those who practice “witchcraft” to burn.

    You lefties can’t comprehend plain English and the Bible. #6 states, “the murder of those merely accused.” Lev. 20 does not go there. Deut. 18 calls for exile only. Isa. 47 is another Godly condemnation of those who, in your own words, actually “practice” a number of abominations, including “witchcraft,” not simply due to an accusation.

    mondy, you twist the record and lie about what is demonstrable. You are just one more example of the rot in our public schools.

    islam and Christianity cannot be equated, except through lies.

    You and islam can both kiss my butt.

    You have tried the usual commie trick of assuming that those you hate are, like you, selective in our outrage.

    Only lefties excuse their own behavior with the “everyone does it excuse.” You don’t care that senseless, vicious murders are perpetrated by your pals the jihadists, and disguise your culpability by finger-pointing at your political and moral enemies, ignoring all that is true and good.

    mondy, you have earned my complete and utter contempt.

    11 and 12. if you read my post (can either of you read?) I made exactly the same point that you two nitwits are trying to make. What I said was that iIF one cherry picks ones verses, one can use the Bible to make a case for anything which unfortunately, many people do.

    Even before Arabs discovered Africa people being killed for “witch craft” was (some places still is) prevalent. However in many tribes “sorcery” and “witch craft” are two different things. Sorcery is accepted and witch craft is not. Sorcery is knowingly practiced, but people preform “witch craft” in their sleeps and feed off the souls of their neighbors and cause bad things to happen. A person can be accused of witch craft and killed for it without any evidence what so ever.VWU-

On Friday November 2, 2007, an Egyptian pharmacist was decapitated with a sword in Riyadh after being found “guilty” of sorcery. Mustapha Ibrahim worked in Arar, a city in the north of Saudi Arabia, and was said to have tried to separate a married couple. llion Africans were enslaved by Arab slave traders, while .4 to 14 million Africans brought to the Americas. I would also like to note that black slaves and gold were introduced to Europeans by Arab slave traders.n Qu’ran if you care to read it. One of the most shocking I found was that where Muhammad said that even if he slept with a black slave and she bore him a son, he would still be a slave because his mother was a slave. So even if someone who is black does not look black because they are mixed race, they have to remember that they will always be black and as such they will always be slaves and should be beaten by their “masters”.haired, while Japheth [Turks] begat all those who are full-faced with small eyes, and Shem [Arabs] begat everyone who is handsome of face with beautiful hair. Noah prayed that the hair of Ham’s descendants would not grow beyond their ears, and that whenever his descendants met Shem’s, the latter would enslave them. the father of the Arabs, the Persians, and the Greeks; Ham was the father of the Black Africans; and Japheth was the father of the Turks and of Gog and Magog who were cousins of the Turks. Noah prayed that the prophets and apostles would be descended from Shem and kings would be from Japheth. He prayed that the African’s color would change so that their descendants would be slaves to the Arabs and Turks. hoever wants to see Satan should look at Nabtal!’ He was a black man with long flowing hair, inflamed eyes, and dark ruddy cheeks…. Allah sent down concerning him: ‘To those who annoy the Prophet there is a painful doom.” [9:61] “Gabriel came to Muhammad and said, ‘If a black man comes to you his heart is more gross than a donkey’s.’ Arabs predated the European slave roots by over 700 years. Slavery is the back on which Islam was born. The prophet Muhammad was a slave trader by profession, he specialized in trading African slaves, and was extremely racist against black people. I’m not a Christian, I’m not even religious, but I really can’t stand when I see people blame everything on Christianity and white people. You honestly listed Islam in your “question” yet you won’t even recognize what Islam has done to Africa. Islam is the largest religion in Africa, it was also placed there by their enslavers. No, not Europeans, Arabs. While slavery was a major part of African tribal systems (and in some regions still is) it was never as large scale as when Arabs started enslaving blacks to sell to other Muslims and South and West Asian countries.

    Bill #15, not quite sure what you were trying to say by that post. Sorry…

  • bear


    You “certainly” did “cherry pick” Bible verses, and inaccurately to boot. Only Commies like you choose to do so.

    Gee, I wonder why? Read #11 and #12. Nitwit.

    I see no repudiation of either the jihadist murderers or the tactics of you lefty, anti-Americans.

    Having gone to the actual source of your lying accusations re the Bible, it is a lie that “one could certainly see them” as you describe.

    You lie. Trying to deny it by claiming that “many” folks are in agreement with you is as bogus as your initial lies.
