It may be recalled that a man was stoned to death by a mob in a remote village in Khanewal district of Punjab for allegedly insulting the Holy Quran.

Taking note of the incident, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that no attempt would be made by any individual / group to take the law into their own hands.

In his tweet, he added that the killings by mob violence would be crushed severely.

At the same time, he said that he had sought details of the action taken by the IG Punjab against those responsible for the Mian Channu incident and the police personnel who failed to perform their duties.

According to the Dawn newspaper, after the evening prayers in the village Jangal Dera on Saturday, such announcements were made that a person tore the pages of the Qur’an and set them on fire. Hundreds of locals gathered after hearing the announcements.

The accused was allegedly innocent but no one listened to him and first hung him from a tree and then killed him by beating him to death.

According to an eyewitness, the police team reached the village and took the accused into custody but the mob snatched him from the custody of SHO.

Reacting to the killing after the violence, Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry said that if schools, police stations and pulpits were not reformed in the society, be prepared for a catastrophe.
