2 Nurses Booked For Blasphemy After Mob Creates Chaos In Faisalabad Hospital
Two Christian nurses working at the District Headquarters (DHQ) Hospital in Faisalabad have been booked on allegations of committing blasphemy after a mob held protest against them in the hospital. Several hospital employees held a protest demonstration on Friday against the two nurses, accusing them of having committed blasphemy by taking off a sticker with sacred text from a cupboard, reported Dawn.
A police van parked inside the hospital which was to carry one of the nurses to a safe location was also attacked by the mob. She was eventually locked inside the van to protect her from the protestors.
Dawn quoted a police officer as saying that the alleged incident took place where physchiatric patients are being treated. The removed sticker was reportedly taken into possession by a head nurse who told the higher-ups about the matter.
