Pakistan cleric investigated after child molested and killed

Pakistan police on Saturday launched an investigation against a prominent cleric after a six-year-old boy was found strangled and dumped in a mosque after being sexually abused.

“We have apprehended up to seven people including local cleric Qari Saqib, who is prime suspect in this case,” Ijaz Shafi Dogar, a senior police official in the eastern city of Lahore, told AFP.

Moeen Yasin’s body was found in the grounds of a mosque in Lahore after he was reported missing by his father on Friday.

    More pedophilia from the religion of peace I see. There is a disturbing amount of it. I guess all the goats were taken?

    “Sexual violence against children is common in Pakistan though authorities lack data because many families don’t report such crimes because of the attached stigma”.

    Didn’t know there that child molestation and child murder was against the law in Pakistan. I learned something from this post. Didn’t know that there was any social stigma to child murder or molestation in that country. Hmm.

        The “stigma” is usually that the abused usually belong to powerless families that are constantly preyed on by the vilest supporters of the more powerful and if they raise a stink their entire group will be slaughtered.

    Imagine if this had happened in a Catholic church. It would make worldwide headlines for months and trigger major investigations, etc. Atheists would talk about it at every opportunity for years to come.

    Since it happened in a mosque—crickets.

      When the devil called Ayatoldjah Komeiny home the funeral newsreel was a real industrial strength fanatic fest. Too bad all the really good stuff is much harder to locate on Youtube now, especially all the early really good shakes that dumped old “K” from the coffin several times until they got into the groove.
