The police station’s response: why did they allow this to happen?

A vigilante mob took over a police station in the New Karachi area to punish one young woman, who had been booked and detained for alleged involvement in desecration of Holy Quran. The mob wasn’t satisfied by the legality of the actions and decided to punish the suspect by themselves. This violates law and order. We are very disappointed to witness such lawlessness. We all need to keep peace and be respectful of the law. The solution is not in the law and could lead to more violence and chaos.

A Quick Summary

The police in these cases must ensure that officers are trained in dealing with the blasphemy FIRs and offer emotional assistance for family members of the suspects. The defendant’s spouse has admitted that his wife was emotionally upset and it’s possible she wasn’t in the appropriate mindset at the time she made a statement that resulted in the filing of an FIR being brought against her. This issue must also be examined by the investigators. If they find that she’s not stabilized, they should reduce her charges and provide the necessary medical care.
