Hundreds of Muslims burn pregnant Christian couple alive in Pakistan after false ‘blasphemy’ accusation

Hundreds of Islamists are said to have gathered to beat and burn Shama Bibi and Shehzad Masih to death. Shama was pregnant with their fourth child.

The husband, a debt slave who was born in the factory and had worked there since he was seven years old, was accused by the factory owner of burning a Qu’ran. But relatives of the victims claim the couple wanted to move out due to unpaid wages, and the factory owner might have the caused the killing as revenge.

The factory owner arranged local mosques to use their loudspeakers to spread the message of blasphemy, and hundreds gathered for a ‘necessary killing’.

Witnesses claim the mob broke the victim’s legs to prevent escape, and even wrapped the woman in cotton to make her burn faster in the factory furnace, allegedly among chants of “Kill the Christian non-believers” and “Allahu Akhbar”.

A court has now finally announced the verdict, despite only sentencing a small number of the attackers, the Pakistani Christian community was relieved. The marginalized minority is often left in the cold by courts, and it’s blasphemy law has often been used to oppress Christians, with some Pakistanis dubbing it “A license to kill Christians.”
