[Islamabad] The expatriate manager of a Pakistani sports equipment factory was brutally murdered by an angry mob on Friday after being accused of blasphemy. The attack took place in Sialkot city, which is located in northeast Punjab Province, one of Pakistan’s most industrialized areas. Priyantha Diyawadana Kumara, 50, a Sri Lankan Christian, worked at the Rajco Industries factory, which made uniforms for the Pakistan national cricket team. He was the general manager there for the last 11 years.

The enraged workers jeered as they attacked him with rods, batons, fists and kicks and shouted religious slogans. Armughan Gondal, a senior police official, told The Media Line, “Kumara was killed for allegedly desecrating a sticker that contained the Holy Prophet’s name.”

Being accused of blasphemy in Pakistan is like being being accused of witchcraft in 17th century Salem.

Often times the accusation is not even true, it was made out of spite, but the accused is in prison, on death row or killed before any of the facts come out.
