A 9-year-old Christian boy and his mother were arrested after a false claim that the boy had burned a copy of the Quran.
Jihad Watch reports that, “The boy, Inzam, was accused of this offence while at school on Oct. 20, according to the London-based charity British Pakistani Christians Association.”

Luckily, police officers handling their blasphemy cases admitted they found no evidence linking the mother and son to the burning of the book.
However, it was revealed that the imprisoned mother-son duo had been tortured during their four days in prison. They also said their interrogators tried to force them to confess to the alleged crime that they did not commit.
