11y old Pakistani girl with down syndrome sentenced to death? Why does their government condone such violence?
Here is the SourceFed report: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxDh2JQRiu8
She was allegedly seen burning pages of what they think was the koran. Last month, a man accused of desecrating a Koran was dragged from a police station by a mob and beaten to death.
This isn't a matter of evil government action here. These are the people in the street doing this violence. Clear barbarism.
*update for clarity: She has not be sentenced yet. (that was posed as a question like 'how could she'. As of an hour ago, she is being held in solitary confinement for her own safety. This is what I'm talking about. She is in solitary to protect her from the public.
