Of Course: 44 Arrested in Pakistan For Burning Christian Couple in Industrial Kiln

Backwards and barbaric, and
thuggishly, stupidly proud of it.

Pakistan's prime minister vowed to show "no mercy" to the members of a mob that burned a Christian couple alive in an industrial kiln, as the number of villagers arrested in connection with the crime reached 44. Shahbaz Maseeh, 26, and his wife Shama Bibi, 24, were attacked by colleagues on Tuesday at the brick factory where they worked in Punjab province after word got out that Bibi had burned several verses from the Quran left behind by her dead father. The mob reportedly broke Bibi and Maseeh's legs so they couldn't run away and then threw them in an industrial kiln.

The Pakistan government is making the right noises about showing "no mercy" to the culprits and doing whatever it takes to protect religious minorities, but I have a feeling they'll all be set free with a warning.

You know, the prosecutors will say they can't make a case. That sort of arranged non-prosecution.
