Pakistan: Mob kills man for ‘blasphemy’

December 24, 2012

Police in Pakistan say a man has been beaten to death by a mob for apparently desecrating Islam’s holy book, the Quran.

The crowd of hundreds of villagers set the body of the man, believed to be mentally unstable, on fire after killing him on Friday in Dadu district of Sindh province, police said on Saturday.

About 200 people reportedly stormed the police station where the man was being held and attacked him. His body was later set on fire.

This sounds very similar to an earlier story, which makes me wonder: is this now becoming a way to get rid of unwanted relatives?
