A mob of students beat a classmate to death for blasphemy while shouting “Allahu Akbar” at a Pakistani university Thursday.
Approximately 10 students stripped Marshal Khan naked, stomped on him, and hit him with planks, smashing his skull while other students watched, as reported by Reuters. The deadly beating was caught on camera.
Blasphemy is a highly sensitive topic in Muslim-majority Pakistan, where insulting the Prophet Mohammed is a capital crime that has dozens languishing on death row and where even an accusation can lead to violence.
Mocking the Prophet Mohammed constitutes blasphemy in the Muslim-majority country. Seventeen people convicted of the crime sat on death row in Pakistan and 19 were serving life sentences as of the end of 2014, according to Human Rights Watch.
