Mashal Khan murder: What religious scholars have to say

PESHAWAR: Mashal Khan, Mardan University student has been lynched to death by mob over the issue of the blasphemous content on social media.

The cold blooded murder and brutal killing has been condemned by the entire society.

Religious scholars have also come forward in condemning the violent behaviour of people on unproven allegations.

Reacting over the murder of a Mashal at Abdul Wali Khan University in Mardan, renowned Islamic scholar Mufti Taqi Usmani highlighted that no individual has the right to kill anyone in the wake of blasphemy as Pakistan has proper law to handle such matters.

He added that state is responsible to award punishment to people in the blasphemy case that is a sensitive issue.

“Legislation and implementation of laws are the sole responsibility of the state,” he said while talking to Samaa news.

On the other hand, Minister for Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony Sardar Mohammad Yousaf has said that blasphemy by anyone cannot be pardoned but no one will be allowed to interfere in state affairs.
