Pakistan’s president has ordered a report into the arrest of a girl with mental disabilities, reportedly as young as 11, accused of desecrating pages of the Koran.
Police say the girl was arrested last week in a Christian area of the capital, Islamabad, after a furious crowd demanded she be punished.
Officials said the girl could not properly answer police questions.
Her parents have been taken into protective custody following threats.
Many other Christian families have fled the neighbourhood after unrest erupted. Reports say that police arrested her under pressure from the large crowd.
It is thought that the girl has Down’s syndrome, which is a congenital condition that causes various degrees of learning difficulties and certain physical abnormalities.
Welcome to Islam
Sorry but this had nothing to do with Islam, rather with epic-idiosyncratic behavior of an uneducated and degenerated lot! If they knew anything about Islam, they would have known that a mentally incapable person let alone an immature individual is not liable for any such thing. Finally given that even President of Pakistan has taken notice and large number of influential clerics have spoken against it goes on to show that it is not a popular opinion within Islam or for that matter even Pakistani Muslims.
