LAHORE: A 15-year-old boy near Lahore cut off his own hand believing he had committed blasphemy, only to be celebrated by his parents and neighbours for the act, police told AFP Friday.

Local police chief Nausher Ahmed described how an imam told a gathering at a village mosque that those who love the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) always say their prayers, then asked who among the crowd had stopped praying.

The boy raised his hand by mistake after apparently mishearing the question.

The crowd swiftly accused him of blasphemy so he went to his house and cut off the hand he had raised, put it on a plate, and presented it to the cleric, the police chief said.

The incident took place at a village in Hujra Shah Muqeem town, some 125 kilometres (77 miles) south of Lahore, the capital of Punjab province, about four days ago, according to the policeman.

Ahmed said that he has seen a video in which the boy is greeted by villagers in the street as his parents proclaim their pride.

No complaint has been made, he said, so no police report has been filed and there will be no investigation.

What....

Hard to believe, people bleed to death if they cut the artery that runs along the wrist, like 'slashing their wrists'  in attempted suicide. How can a 15 yr old boy just chop off his hand and be well enough to present it to the moulvi?Probably some exaggeration going on.

But nevertheless it's a good expample of how people are brainwashed by ignorant moulvis into thinking that Islam is a religion of violence. Was no one in the crowd was sane enough to mention repentance and forgiveness?

you dont even know what sunnism is, and no your accusations are incorrect, all sunni scholars follow same books, and this incident is exceptional, it was jut the boy who took it to extreme level.

I'll have to agree wit Highflyer here - we don't see sunnis cutting off their hands left right and center here. A one-time incident which was taken to the extremes and is perhaps being exaggerated as well.

The fact that most Sunni scholars (I'm aware of none) have done anything about this, or about the thousands of ills present in the Pakistani society, speaks volumes about the kind of Sunni "scholars" being produced today.

I don't think the boy is firing on all four cylinders if he says the imam was "blameless".

 

To the Desi members of SC, how frequently do these things happen in Pakistan?

first time I am hearing something like this

Okay, so this must be an isolated incident and unusual to hear about in Pakistan (Cutting your own hand off is unusual anywhere in the world, I know.) I hope this doesn't become a trend soon, insha'Allah. :( P.S. What I don't understand is how come the boy didn't bleed to death? Something is strangely amiss here.
