More than 200 villagers overpowered six police men and beat up the man, before burning him.
The time has come to consider the nature of our society and what is happening to it. We appear to have descended into a frenzy of madness and wonder if anyone can save us from it. Certainly, things seem to be getting worse by the day.
The latest evidence of this comes in an incident at the village of Seeta in Dadu, where a man accused of desecrating the Holy Quran was snatched away from police custody and burnt alive by a mob as law enforcers looked on, failing to act to save him. Similar incidents have taken place before. According to the tale told by the prayer leader of the mosque at Seeta, the man had offered evening prayers and then spent the night there. Worshippers arriving for morning prayers, stated they found burnt copies of the Holy Quran, blamed the man for this, handed him over to the Rajo Dero police and lodged an FIR against him. As word of the incident spread, a mob of some 200 collected at the police station, overpowered the six or so policemen posted there, beat up the man and then burned him alive. The SSP of Dadu has said the 10 policemen posted at the station and some 24 villagers have been arrested.
