Peshawar- Jamaat-e-Islami chief Sirajul Haq said today that incident of Kot Radha Krishan had brought defamation to image of the country and Islam.

The JI head said no one should be entitled to indulge in vigilante justice. He said such practices should be avoided. He further said the mod had not burnt a couple but burnt the whole humanity.

The incident took place in a village in Punjab province on November 4 when a local cleric told his community through the loudspeakers of his mosque to punish the couple for alleged desecration of the Holy Quran.

A mob then gathered outside the house of Shehzad Masih, 32, and his wife Shama, in her 20s, dragged them out and beat them to death.

Their bodies were then set on fire in a brick kiln where they worked.
