According to the details, a mob brutally lynched a mentally challenged man in the Khanewal district over the alleged desecration of the Holy Quran.

Mob tortured and killed a man who took refuge in a mosque accused him of burning pages of the Holy Quran.

“No individual or a group of people will be allowed to take law in their own hands. The government will severely crush incidents of mob incidents. From Punjab IG Police, I have summoned a report regarding action against those police officials who have failed to perform their duties (to stop the incident),” PM Imran Khan tweeted.

Federal Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry also condemned the incident in a tweet.

He said: “Many times I have pointed out about the extremist material in the education system. Incidents like Sialkot and Mian Channu are outcomes of the decades-old educational system. It is also a problem of enforcement of law and decadence of society, too. If we fail to reform three places i.e. school, police, and pulpit, then a greater tragedy is going to hit us.” 

The victim has been identified as Mushtaq.
