ISLAMABAD, Pakistan –Fifty Muslims were arrested last week in Pakistan for being involved in a 1,000-member mob that beat a Christian couple and then threw them into the fire over accusations that they had desecrated the Koran.
Shama Bibi, 28, and Shahzad Masih, 32, lost their lives on Tuesday being burnt to ashes after they were encircled by the mob who had been informed over mosque loudspeakers that the couple had been found guilty of blasphemy against Islam.
According to reports, following the recent death of her father-in-law, Bibi burned the trinkets that he had used to practice black magic. But when others saw discovered what she had done, they rather accused her of burning the Koran.
