Ahmadis, Vigilante Justice, and Blasphemy in Pakistan
On May 16th of this year, Religion Clause Blog had a post that provides yet another example of vigilante justice and the problems faced by the minority Ahmadi faith in Pakistan. After some Ahamadis asked a shopkeeper to remove a sticker that they felt was offensive to their religion, the shopkeeper had them arrested for blasphemy. A teenage boy then entered the police station and shot one of them dead.
