Islamabad, Feb 13 (PTI) -- A middle-aged man was lynched to death by a mob for allegedly desecrating a religious book in a remote village in Pakistan’s Punjab province, eyewitnesses said on Sunday.
The incident took place on Saturday in Jungle Dera village, where locals had gathered after their Maghrib (evening) prayers, following announcements that a man had torn pages of the Holy Quran and had set them on fire, they said.
According to eyewitnesses, the police arrived in the village before the incident took place, but the mob seized the victim from the SHO’s custody and tied him to a tree, after which he was lynched to death.
The victim had reportedly claimed innocence, but the angry mob ignored his pleas.
Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar has sought a report from the police force and also ordered a detailed probe into this incident.
Pakistan has extremely strict laws against defaming Islam, including the death penalty, and rights campaigners say they are often used to settle scores in the Muslim majority country.
The gruesome incident comes a little over two months after a Sri Lankan executive of a garment factory was lynched and his body torched by angry supporters of a hardline Islamist party that attacked the facility in Pakistan's Punjab province over blasphemy allegations.

Hard to desecrate a murder manual.
How do you desecrate pages of poop ???
Another day and another reason to THANK GOD that for all its problems, I was blessed enough to be born in the USA instead of some third world hell hole country.
Anyone read this and still feel the Chinese are out of line with the treatment of their own muzzie population? Godless inbreed savage country #1 meet godless inbreed savage country #2, now have at it.
Seems the best way to have someone wacked in Pakistan is to accuse them of ripping out a couple of pages of the Koran and burning them. Cheaper than having to hire a hit man.
......’the mob’ seized the victim.....
Typical Muslim fashion....doesn’t take much to rile them up to crazy level. Even in their own homes.
This is what democrat voters want to have happen to us which is why democrat import as many muslims as possible.
I was thinking of the woman who was calling for slashing the tires of the truckers.
I’ll bet you everything I own that she would never have the nerve to do it herself. Leftists are cowards and like to incite others to do their dirty work. So they throw out comments and ideas and hope some nutjob does it for them. Then he takes the fall and not them. They back pedal and claim their words were “misinterpreted “.
Liars and cowards, all.
I know the official wording in court proceedings is ‘hang by the neck until you are dead’ but has there ever been a lynching that was meant to be concluded with anything but death to the intended?
“ Seems the best way to have someone wacked in Pakistan is to accuse them of ripping out a couple of pages of the Koran”
It is a widely abused alibi to kill people there. Political rivals, business rivals, and romantic rivals have all been victims of false claims of blasphemy.
It is a well known get out of jail free card there, like people here are aware of the usefullness of playing the race card to avoid accountability.
