Just when you think humans can’t get any more stupid they prove you wrong. This brain-dead mob in Lahore wanted to behead a woman for insulting ‘the prophet’ with Koran verses on her dress when they were nothing of the kind

They are described in the report as ‘hundreds of furious men’, but they are not ‘men’. They are imbecilic excuses for men who do not have a brain cell in working order. Imagine the scale of software programming necessary to behead a woman for your unquestioning religious dogma. I have seen lampposts with more intelligence.

Horrifying footage shows the moment a violent mob threatens to behead a terrified woman after accusing her of wearing a dress with ‘blasphemous’ text on in Pakistan.

Hundreds of furious men swarmed around a restaurant in the eastern city of Lahore after mistaking Arabic text meaning ‘sweet’ on a shopper’s dress for Koran verses.

The woman is seen cowering in fear as the men begin to threaten her, telling her to take off her clothes, before the establishment is shut and police officers attempt to pacify the baying mob.

A brave female officer tries to reason with the men, asking them to ‘have faith in the police’ and not take the law into their own hands, even as the crowd swells and begins chanting a slogan meaning ‘there is only one punishment for those who blaspheme the prophet – beheading’.

The police officer, identified as Assistant Superintendent Syeda Shehrbano Naqvi, then enters the restaurant and manages to whisk away the woman, who is now covered in black, shielding her from the men gathered outside.

‘Nobody actually knew what was written on the shirt,’ the officer told the BBC. ‘The major feat was to try to get that woman out of the area in order to ensure that she is safe.’

In a second video, the woman is seen in custody, flanked by police and Islamic clerics who confirmed that her dress was not printed with Koran verses and that she was innocent.

Her face is covered, and she looks at the camera with hands folded in apology, saying she was ‘sorry and that she did not mean to cause offence’.

Struggling to hold back tears, she adds that she ‘did not realise that people would misunderstand the Arabic text to mean something from the Koran’ and that she ‘would never again wear a dress like that’, all while the cleric next to her keeps prompting her with what to say.

‘The woman was out shopping when a group of men noticed her dress with Arabic text on it and demanded that she take it off, because they believed it was blasphemy,’ ASP Shehrbano says.

Among the crowd were supporters of the far-right Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) party, whose members regularly call for blasphemers to be beheaded.

Police said they were called to the scene at around 1pm on Sunday, and that around 300 people had gathered at the restaurant by the time they arrived.

The dress in question was a design with the Arabic word ‘halwa’ meaning sweet, which has no religious meaning, being sold by a Saudi Arabia-based boutique.

Praising the female police officer’s effort to stop the mob, Pakistan’s Punjab police said they have nominated her for a gallantry award, while sharing the video to Twitter.

‘Had I not screamed and had I not convinced the crowd that we will do something about it, It would have turned nastier… Thank God,’ she said.

ASP Shehrbano said authorities have seen a ‘mushrooming of incidents’ like that seen on Sunday, the BBC reports.

Blasphemy is punishable by death in Pakistan, but there have been numerous cases of alleged perpetrators being lynched before their cases even make it to trial.

At least 85 people have been murdered over blasphemy allegations since 1990, according to local media and researchers.
