Last week, a 22-year-old Christian labourer Saleem Masih was severely tortured to death by local landowners in Kasur for bathing in their tube-well water and ‘polluting’ it. The deceased’s father Ghafoor Masih said that the attackers took Saleem to their cattle farm, where they continued beating him with rods after chaining his hands and feet.
“They also rolled a thick iron rod over Saleem’s entire body, which led to fractures and internal injuries,” Ghafoor added. He further said the accused also called Saleem a ‘filthy Christian’ while cursing him for ‘polluting’ the water.
