A Christian man and his pregnant wife were recently burnt alive by Muslims in Pakistan.
The Christian couple, who had four children, had been working at a brick kiln. They went to the owner of the kiln and demanded their wages for several months of work. Rather than give them the money, the owner incited a mob by claiming that the man had torn a page from the Koran.
The angry mob chanted “Allahu Akbar” and then beat the man and his wife to a bloody pulp. Their legs were broken to prevent escape. They were then placed in the klin, which was ablaze with fire.

One Pakistani, who broke the story at shoebat.com, stated his version of the story:
“Shahzed took the loan from the Kiln owner and started working with his family in the Kiln of Muhammad Yousaf Gujjar. However on 3rd Nov, 2014 at night the announcement was made from different mosques in district that Shahzed Masih and Shama Bibi have torn the pages of the Quran and they have committed blasphemy against the Koran.
Whereas few days back the father of Shahzed Masih passed away and the couple discussed to burn all the belongings of a late father. But the Kiln manager and owner accused them of burning the pages of Koran.
Since the morning of November 4th the enraged villagers gathered at the kiln where Muhammad Yousaf Gujjar handed over the couple to the furious crowd. Though Shama and Shahzed beg for their lives, the mob set them on fire in the Kiln, alive.”
Is this kind of violence inherent to Islam, or is this only an exceptional case? Let us know your thoughts.
