Blasphemy laws..ironic how the Qu'ran is supposed to support a religion of peace and these fucking animals exist
Rifta Masih – who suffers from Down’s Syndrome – was jailed by the police
in Meharabadi village, near Islamabad, on Saturday after being severely
beaten up by locals, for allegedly burning 10 pages of the Noorani
After the issue was highlighted in the media, Islamabad police
registered a case against the imam of the local mosque of Meharabad area
near G-11 sector for instigating locals to set the minor girl on fire.
“Investigation is under way and the authenticity of the incident, age
of the girl and her motive are yet to be determined,” said the station
house officer (SHO) of the Qasim Niazi police station. Instead of trying
to contain the situation and allaying tensions in the area through
deployment of police, the SHO simply asked the Christian community of
the area to run for their lives.
The official revealed that a new FIR has been registered against the
cleric and 175 others who he claimed have approached the police with a
demand to hand over the Christian girl so she could be set on fire
publicly at the main chowk of the area.
Adviser to the Prime Minister on National Harmony Dr Paul Bhatti told The Express Tribune
that Rifta would be medically examined. Bhatti said that he has also
taken up the issue with religious scholars of different sects, who,
after Eidul Fitr, will determine whether Rifta’s act was deliberate or
unintentional, since she is only a child.
A cleric, who talked on phone on the condition of anonymity, gave The Express Tribune
his version of the incident. According to him, he was teaching Quran to
students in the mosque when he heard noises of neighbours beating
someone. When he approached the scene, he was told that the girl, who he
himself admitted was a minor, had taken away a copy of the holy book
from a neighbour’s house and set it on fire.
The cleric vowed to defend “Islam in this world and the next” and
claimed that after witnessing the incident he, along with some other
locals, approached the police for registration of a case against the
He said when the police remained reluctant to register the case,
locals were forced to stage a protest. While the cleric claimed that it
was he who approached the police for legal action, the police said that
they saved the girl and her family through a timely intervention or the
mob led by this cleric would have burnt the girl alive.
SHO Niazi said that if a timely operation was not conducted, locals
could have burnt the Christians of the area. Others said that instead of
denying the allegations, the Christian population fled the area. Abdur
Rehman, 24, who also lives in the area, said that he wanted to kill the
girl but police escorted her along with the family.Source: http://tribune.com.pk/story/424464/backlash-fear-prompts-christian-families-to-flee/
