At least 20 individuals are dead after a “faith healer” at a popular Muslim shrine in Pakistan tortured and murdered them.
The victims were said to be disciples of the healer, who drugged them via laced food, stripped them naked, and stabbed them to death with a dagger and stick.
The incident occurred around midnight between Saturday and Sunday.
According to regional police chief Zulfiqar Hameed, the 50-year-old shrine custodian and faith healer, Abdul Waheed killed the people because he feared they were going to kill him.
“The suspect appears to be paranoid and psychotic, or it could be related to rivalry for the control of shrine,” Hameed said.
Clearly, Islam is the religion of peace. So much so, that its religious leaders feel the need to kill other members. It leaves us wondering, what religion condones killing its own members? Definitely not a religion that is worth following.
