Almost 100 houses were burned in a mob attack on a Christian community at the Badami Bagh area in Lahore.
The attack was supposedly retaliation against a member of the community for having made blasphemous remarks.
During the attack, members of the police including the SHO of the area was also injured when the mob threw stones at them.
The mob comprising of almost 3000 members attacked the Joseph colony on Noor road. The attack was led by Shafiq Ahmed against the supposed blasphemer Savan.
Several houses besides that of Savan were attacked and almost 150 Christian families were forced to flee the area.
Savan is currently under arrest and has been moved to an undisclosed location.

Dozens of houses torched as mob attacks Lahore Christian locality

LAHORE: An enraged mob torched dozens of houses located in a Christian-dominated neighbourhood of Lahore on Saturday, DawnNews reported.

The mob attacked the houses in Joseph Colony in Badami Bagh police precincts in the provincial capital following allegations of blasphemy against a Christian man. The man was booked under Section 295-C of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC).

It appeared that the man had been falsely accused of blasphemy but the police was forced to register a case to placate the mob, a local police official said.

Speaking to a private television channel, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said the accused man was in police custody.

Sanaullah said all those involved in the arson would be arrested, adding that his government would try to rehabilitate the affected Christian families.

Blasphemy is an extremely sensitive subject in Pakistan – a nation of 180 million people, 97 per cent of whom are Muslims, and those convicted of defaming Islam or desecrating the Quran can face life imprisonment or even the death penalty.

Human rights activists claim the laws are often used to settle personal vendettas and last year two prominent politicians were assassinated apparently for speaking out against the legislation.

It could be a case of land mafia, trying to evict Christians and then appropriating the land for themselves

I can agree that the incident is abhorrent. I remain steadfast in my resolve to see concepts such as Blasphemy laws abolished. But so far they are there, the understanding why its wrong to punish for blasphemy has to start and slowly we can shift mindsets. Proper source should be linked to every article. I would like to know if there was any bias in this incidents' reporting.

Most internet Pakis (except a selected few) are the worst hypocrites in the world, and are among the most shameless people on the planet. They keep yammering about Gujarat riots, which happened way back in 2002. While in their own nation, such riots take place every month, sometimes every week.

The member who replied to you (@Awesome) was chest-thumping on another forum: "Modi needs to hang, Modi needs to hang". By that yardstick, almost every local/district level leader in Pakistan needs to be hanged for the continuous atrocities, riots, pogroms and genocides that happen in Pakistan on a bimonthly basis.

Kashmir+Babri Masjid+Gujarat Riots+Samjhauta Blasts+Sacchar Committee Report+1984 riots+RSS/BJP/Bajrang Dal- that is probably the intellect span of even the most intelligent Paki lurking on Indian/Paki defense forums.
