KASUR: An enraged mob beat a Christian couple to death in Pakistan and burnt their bodies in the brick kiln where they worked on Tuesday for allegedly desecrating pages of Holy Quran, police said.
The incident took place at the town of Kot Radha Kishan, some 60 kilometres (40 miles) southwest of the city of Lahore, and is the latest example of mob violence against minorities accused of blasphemy.
“A mob attacked a Christian couple after accusing them of desecration of the Holy Quran and later burnt their bodies at a brick kiln where they worked,” local police station official Bin-Yameen told AFP.
“Yesterday an incident of desecration of the Holy Book took place in the area and today the mob first beat the couple and later set their bodies on fire at a brick kiln,” he added. More
