Muslim Mob Torches Dozens of Christian Homes in Pakistan over Blasphemy Accusation

Muhammad commanded his followers to react violently to criticism. We see the results of Muhammad's teachings in places like Pakistan, where even an accusation of blasphemy can have deadly consequences. Yet when critics in the West condemn Muhammad's violent teachings (knowing that we would be killed for our words in the Muslim world), we're called racists, bigots, hate-mongers, and Islamophobes. Should we be more open-minded about the senseless slaughter of anyone who dares question Muhammad's authority?

LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) — Hundreds of people in eastern Pakistan rampaged through a Christian neighborhood Saturday, torching dozens of homes after hearing reports that a Christian man had committed blasphemy against Islam's prophet.

Blasphemy is a serious crime in Pakistan that can carry the death penalty but sometimes outraged residents exact their own retribution for perceived insults of Islam's Prophet Muhammad. Pakistan is overwhelmingly Sunni Muslim and people of other faiths, including the nation's small Christian community, are often viewed with suspicion.

The incident started Friday when a young Muslim man accused a Christian man of committing blasphemy by making offensive comments about the prophet, according to Multan Khan, a senior police officer in Lahore.

A large crowd from a nearby mosque went to the Christian man's home on Friday night, said Khan. Police registered a blasphemy case against the man after the crowd gathered and demanded action, the officer said.

Fearing for their safety, hundreds of Christian families fled the area overnight.

Khan said the mob returned on Saturday and began ransacking Christian homes and setting them ablaze. He said no one in the Christian community was hurt, but several policemen were injured when they were hit with stones as they tried to keep the crowd from storming the area.

But Akram Gill, a local bishop in the Lahore Christian community said the incident had more to do with personal enmity between two men — one Christian and one Muslim — than blasphemy. He said the men got into a brawl after drinking late one night, and in the morning the Muslim man made up the blasphemy story as payback.

He said the Christian community handed over to police the accused man, identified by police and Gill as Sawan Masih, when police came to the neighborhood to investigate. Then the Christians all locked up their houses and went to relatives in other areas. He said the mob was armed with hammers and steel rods and broke into houses, ransacked two churches and burned Bibles and crosses. (Continue Reading.)

You see they burned a Bible, but the differencr between us and them is we Christians know that it was iggnorance and God Almighty will be the Judge on that, but the muslim they don't leave it up to their Allah they take things into their own hands, maybe thats because the know their (Allah) can't. Just a thought.

@ Cheryl

Your absolutely correct. They are so defensive and thwart free speech because they are frightened the world will find out the truth about Islamic doctrine and Mohamed. They cant defend Allah or Mohamed intellectually so they have to silence people. Their Allah is important!

For now the best thing we can do is pray for them and do not worry they will prevail. The apostles also experienced the same thing but despite the odds they managed to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ and I believe the same thing will happen in Pakistan. God bless.

Muslims have to defend allah and his muhammad, both severely handicapped and judged by what they uttered in the quran, a concoction of lies, hate, deceit. So to defend the indefensible, they lie, rape and murder.
yet they say muhammad was a mercy for mankind & muslims are the best examples of humanity. Blah!

Stay away from muslims on a Friday - the most dangerous day of the week.

@Cheryl - you are right. Do you remember the Bethlehem siege a few years ago? . No matter was excuses they used for going into the Church I went to Bethlehem 2 years ago and was amazed to see that despite the fact that there was a mosque 100m away from the Church they hid in Church for protection - that alone told me that they don't have any faith in mohammed and allah really.

Muslims worship the Koran as an object. That's why they can't stand to see it burned.
As Christians and Westerners, we know that the message of the Bible and our scriptures is so profound, that the burning of one or even a hundred is inconsequential.
We do not worship the Bible.
We worship God.
We can differentiate between religion and God.
Muslims cannot differentiate among any set of things. To do so would mean the use of reason.
And reason has no place in Islam.

Very well said Cheryl. They intact do take things into their own hands because either they don't trust "Allah" to fight their battle or they simply know that "Allah" can not do anything!
I myself am from Pakistan and grew up amongst Muslims but thankful to God, now living in the US. Although God has protected me and my family when we lived there, I still have relatives living there and pray everyday that God keeps them in his protection. Muslims are like a pack of blood thirsty wolves and Mohammad is the Alpha male of their pack.
Every major sin one can think of, Mohammed has committed himself. He was a polygamist, a rapist (whatever his right possessed), a pedophile, a murderer, a theif, a liar and a deceiver. This is your prophet Muslims?? Cause it definitely sounds more like a guy who should be in prison for life!!

Top Pakistani scholar issues fatwa saying that the Pakistani National Anthem with music is haram;

As you know music is haram under Islam. So every Muslim country should shelve their national anthem.
