Igjen er en kristen drept i Pakistan av en troende som påtok seg å hevne blasfemi ved å drepe vedkommende.
Men ingen har noen gang hørt Boota Masih (58) si noe blasfemisk. Han arbeidet i 30 år ved gullmarkedet i Karachi og var godt likt.
Familie og bekjente tror anklagen var et vikariende motiv for å bli kvitt ham.
Politiet kvier seg for å gjøre noe i slike saker.
Boota Masih a 58, who worked for over 30 years at the Liaqatabad Gold Market in Karachi was murdered by a fellow worker over a false blasphemy accusation.
Professional rivalry or blasphemy? A member of the Liaqatabad Jewelers Association said,» I have been seeing Boota Masih working in this market from past 3 decades, he was an honest worker, no complaint was ever reported against him, had never seen him even speaking against anyone ever.»
The family of the deceased is convinced that the blasphemy allegation was used as a tool to murder him.
No one in the entire market has testified that they heard or saw Masih saying any derogatory remarks about the Prophet; this clearly is a case of false accusation to murder an innocent man on professional rivalry.
Muhammad Asif a worker at the jewelry market brutally stabbed Masih, calling him a blasphemer and no one dared to intervene.
24. oktober brøt menn seg inn i avdødes hus og truet med å drepe dem hvis de ikke konverterte til islam.
Politiet har i etterkant arrestert de som brøt seg inn – Mohammad Nadeem og to andre.
