Pakistan: Muslim Mobs Kill Teen, Riot After Drug Addict Arrested for ‘Desecrating’ Quran

A 17-year-old was shot dead and a friend seriously injured by a Muslim mob in Pakistan, allegedly in retaliation for the arrest of a mentally unstable Hindu man accused of “desecrating” a copy of the Quran. Blasphemy remains a crime in Pakistan, emboldening mobs to attack religious minorities when one is accused of anti-Islamic behavior.
