A mob in Pakistan burned a police station and four police posts over the weekend. The police were holding a man accused of blasphemy for burning a Quran, and refused to turn him over to the mob.

Nehemiah with FMI says the crowd wanted to burn the man alive. “I want to tell you that he did not burn the Quran. There was a page with a verse from the Quran inscribed in it, and he burned that piece of paper.”

The man has a mental illness, and he didn’t realize what he was doing would offend the mob. Religious violence in Pakistan often targets religious minorities, the poor, or other outcasts.
