Pakistan student killed over 'blasphemy' on university campus

A university student in Pakistan accused of blasphemy against Islam has been killed by a mob of fellow students on campus, police say.
Many students have been arrested after the brutal attack in the northern city of Mardan, and the campus has been closed.
Reports suggest that two young men were accused of posting offensive content on Facebook. One survived with injuries.
Blasphemy is a highly sensitive and incendiary issue in Pakistan.
'Badly tortured'

Critics say blasphemy laws, which allow the death penalty in some cases, are often misused to oppress minorities.
There have been other cases where people accused of it have been killed by an angry crowd.
The murdered student has been identified as Mashal Khan, who studied journalism. Some reports say he was shot, while others say he was beaten to death with planks.
"He was badly tortured after being shot at a close range... He was beaten with sticks, bricks and hands," senior police official Niaz Saeed told the AFP news agency.
Hundreds of people were involved, the officer said. Graphic video footage of the incident has emerged online.
Police had not been investigating the two accused men, nor had any case been filed against them, and the mob appeared to have acted on rumours, the Dawn newspaper reports.

Last month Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif voiced his support for a wide-ranging crackdown on blasphemous content on social media.
In a statement on his party's official Twitter account, he described blasphemy as an "unpardonable offence".
An official at Abdul Wali Khan University who spoke on condition of anonymity said Mr Khan was disliked by other students for his liberal and secular views.

Rip the victim.

Islam is a religion of terror. They publicly kill anyone who deviates to encourage the masses to stay faithful.

It may not help in the near term but at least PM Sharif is speaking out against this, can only imagine the struggle he has to eradicate this sort of thing.

Well, all he is speaking out against is the misuse of blasphemy laws for personal gains.

Apart from that:

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday ordered authorities to take immediate action against 'blasphemous' content on the social media and remove sacrilegious contents and punish the perpetrators, days after a high court order.

"Those behind this heinous crime should be dealt with, without any delay," Sharif ordered Federal Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan.

"The blasphemous content on social media is a nefarious conspiracy to hurt the religious sentiments of entire Muslim ummah (community)," he was quoted as saying.

He also ordered to take necessary actions in accordance with the judicial guidelines issued by the court.

"Those responsible for blasphemy should be traced and punished according to the law," he said.

The Islamabad high court judge Shuakat Siddiqui last week directed the interior ministry to take actions against Facebook pages with alleged anti-Islam material.

Sharif also said that accountability of those who misuse the blasphemy law for their personal interests should be ensured.

He also asked the relevant departments to approach international social media platforms to put the blasphemous content off the internet.

Meanwhile, Pakistan's National Assembly on Tuesday passed a unanimous resolution condemning the sacrilegious contents appearing on social media and agreed to constitute a ten-member committee to monitor such content.
