Thousands of people dragged a Pakistani man accused of desecrating Islam’s holy book from a police station in central Pakistan, beat him to death and then set his body on fire, a police official said Wednesday.
The incident highlighted the highly charged nature of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws, under which anyone found guilty of insulting Islam’s Prophet or the Koran can be sentenced to death.
