Bengaluru: Close on the heels of a 14-yr-old Christian girl asked to be returned to her abductor husband by Lahore high court, here comes another piece of disgusting and tragic news that a young boy was sodomised by a maulvi while the young boy was reading Quran in a mosque.

According to reports quoted on a popular website, the minor child was reading the Quran in the mosque when a cleric named Abbas sodomised him. The act of the cleric was recorded in the CCTV installed inside the mosque. The clip was later accessed by Pakistani media.  

The incident happened in Kandiaro in Naushahro Feroze district in the Sindh province.

It was human rights activist Rahat Austin said that such incidents happen regularly in Pakistan. He tweeted, “It happens everyday around country but not considered blasphemy in Islam. 1000s Non-Muslims lynched by mob, or are in death row on false allegations.


He further tweeted, “Rape, Sexual activities in House of Allah are not blasphemy? Why no punishment, While kill non-Muslims on small things? Is this ok to do this in presence of Quran & Allah? What about Islamic Prayer NAMAZ on such place? Is this ok to perform Namaz where a MOLVI sprayed his semen?”


It would not be an exaggeration to state that Pakistan has been a hell for minorities and minors. While a country has to work hard to protect the interests of the minorities and minors, frequent news of how they are subjected subjugation and humiliation makes many wonder why corrective action is not taken. 

To buttress the point, it has to be noted that minorities are disenfranchised, their lands are usurped, their young girls are abducted and raped by Islamic zealots. 

Repeated pleas by minorities for their rights and dignity have fallen on deaf ears.
