A 23-year-old student of Abdul Wali Khan University, Mardan was killed and another seriously injured by a vigilante mob for allegedly “publishing blasphemous content online”, local police said Thursday.
Mardan’s Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police Mohammad Alam Shinwari said the deceased student, Mashal, had been accused of running Facebook pages “which allegedly published blasphemous content”.
Rehman, the caretaker, said Khan was alive when the police arrived, but that they did not approach the hostel until it was too late.
“They could have easily saved his life but they stood away from the mob … I heard one officer say it’s good that they sent this non-believer to hell,” he said.
blasphemy laws, which allow the death penalty in some cases, are often misused to oppress minorities.
Remember that Pakistan is a nation where the law says blasphemers may be executed. The murder comes just weeks after two Pakistani atheists, Ayaz Nizami and Rana Noman, were arrested for posting their thoughts about religion on online forums.
There is no difference between ISIS and these Pakistani Islamist religious people, they all have same motive and share same book ‘Quran’! who I beleive is the source of all these killings and violences. Pakistan would never be peacefull untill this religious drug being washed out from every people mind!
