A huge Muslim mob in Pakistan entered a house where a Christian couple was living, pulled the husband and wife out and beat them almost to death. Pakistani police officers rushed to the scene and righteously rescued the Christians just like the Good Samaritan rescued the man on the road. According to the report:
Police in Pakistan saved a Christian couple from a Muslim mob who were attempting to lynch them for allegedly committing blasphemy, and later arrested a cleric for inciting the violence, a senior officer said today.
The incident, which took place in the village of Makki in Punjab province on Tuesday, represents a rare successful intervention by authorities in a country where even unproven allegations of blasphemy can result in a bloody death at the hands of vigilantes.
Sohail Zafar Chattha, the district police chief, said:
Muslims of the town gathered there and dragged the poor couple who didn’t know what they had done. They were being beaten to death … Police intervened in time and rescued the couple from the mob and shifted them to Lahore and handed over them to the elders of Christian community
