Madrassah Student Dies after Being Tortured by Qur'an Teacher

But don't forget that Islam will save the West from immorality.

LAHORE: A madrassah student in Lahore has been tortured to death by a qari (Quran teacher) on Sunday. The Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has taken notice of the incident and sought a report from the Capital City Police Officer (CCPO).

According to the FIR filed by the victim’s father Mohammad Shafiq at the Shadbagh police station, his 12 year old son Mohammad Jamil was studying the Quran at Madrassah Aziziya from Nazim-e-Ahla (Mohtmam) Qari Muhammad Jameel and an unknown teacher for at least four months.

Both the qari and teacher escaped before the police raided the madrassah. The madrassah has been sealed while a search operation is under way for the escapees.

The FIR further stated that, a few days ago, Jamil complained to his mother about severe abdominal pain, caused by the qari’s alleged torture, after which he was taken to four different private and government hospitals for treatment but eventually succumbed to the injuries, breathing his last late Sunday night.

At least the student will never question the wisdom of the Koran again!

"O you who have believed, if there comes to you a disobedient one with information, investigate, lest you harm a people out of ignorance and become, over what you have done, regretful."

(Suratul Hujarat, Ayah 6)

Praise be to Allah.

To Allah do we belong, and to Allah we shall return.

This report is quite vague. Should it happen to be true, then I pray that the person (or persons) responsible be apprehended by the authorities and brought to justice before a court to answer for the crime of murder, ameen.

Should the report be false or distorted, then may Allah guide us all to the truth of the events which occurred, ameen.

And Allah is the One who knows best.

Peace be unto those who follow righteous guidance.

I read the rest of the report regarding this. The Qari accused of this crime wasn't apprehended at the time of this report, nor was the other unnamed teacher allegedly involved apprehended at the time of this report. Neither was put to trial at the time of this report, nor had an autopsy been conducted at the time of this report. Clearly, this boy (May Allah have mercy on him and grant him Paradise, ameen) was murdered. However, I fail to see why I should immediately believe that the Qari, as well as the unnamed teacher in the report, are automatically guilty for the crime of murder. It may be true (Allah knows best) but shouldn't they receive a fair and just trial BEFORE being convicted?

@yusuf : did you really believe that you're following the righteous guidance?? If you were born as non-muslim.. you'll think again for what you've said 'bout the "righteous guidance"..
