More alarming is the fact that the unidentified man was burnt to death right in front of the police inside the local police station.

The man was accused of burning copies of the Holy Quran at Memon mosque in Seeta village. According to the prayer leader of the mosque, Usman Memon, the man appeared to be a traveller who stayed at the mosque for a night.

“He offered Isha prayers [on Thursday] and spent the night here. When we [worshippers] came to the mosque for Fajr prayers, we found charred copies of the Holy Quran,” Memon toldSindh Express.

The worshippers suspected the unidentified lodger was responsible for the desecration since he was alone at the mosque.  “We handed him over to the Rajo Dero police and lodged an FIR against him,” said Memon.
