The power of mob justice: when the law fails, the people take matters into their own hands.
An angry mob stormed a New Karachi police station to inflict punishment on a woman who was suspected of having desecrated. They wanted to impose themselves on the person in question, and they weren’t content to comply with the law. It’s clear that this violates the law and law. We’re extremely disappointed by this kind of lawlessness. Everyone should be peaceful and observe the law. The solution is not in the law that will cause more chaos and violence.
A Quick Summary
These cases require that police officers be trained on how to handle blasphemy FIRs better and provide emotional support for the loved ones of the suspects. The spouse of the victim involved in this matter has stated that she was emotionally troubled, and it’s possible that she was not at peace with her mind at the time she made those statements that lead to the FIR being filed against her. The police should investigate this angle as well, and if they find that the lady is not stable in her mental state it is best to remove the charge and offer her with the appropriate medical assistance instead.
