Muslim Arrested for Causing Boy To Do This

According to the New York Times, the imam of a Pakistan mosque was arrested and accused of inciting violence. He allegedly made a false charge of blasphemy against a 15-year-old boy.

The mosque in the village of Khanqah, southwest of Lahore, was the site of the scene were imam Shabir Ahmed asked people to raise their hands if they did not love the Muslim prophet Muhammad.

Authorities said Anwar Ali misheard the question and raised his hand on the night of Jan. 10. Soon, the crowd yelled, "Don't you love your prophet?" Ali fled the mosque and cut off his right hand with a scythe. He then gave it to the imam.

After the arrest, the boy's father told The Times "We are lucky that we have this son who loves Prophet Muhammad that much. We will be rewarded by God for this in the eternal world."

In Pakistan, blasphemy accusations can cause mob violence and lynchings.
