Gruesome Murder of Two Brothers in Sialkot by a Mob

I really don’t know from where I could fetch those words to pay condolences to the family of the departed and to describe the intensity of brutality of massacre that people of Sialkot has committed and witnessed with appalling silence. Sadly it is not Taliban flogging or Police Chitrol but worse than it. We are becoming so violent that even the Holy month of Ramadan has to witness such innocent bloodshed.

On the 4th day of Holy month of Ramadan a mob in Sialkot has mercilessly beaten to death two young brothers, 15 years old Hafiz Mughees and 19 years old Hafiz Muneeb, who were alleged to be robbers (later on proved that they were not). People beat them barbarically with sticks and metallic rods for hours and let them bleed and die on the road. The dead bodies were dragged and later hanged upside down at the nearby roundabout.

Sialkot mob killing two Brothers

The brutal act had happened in the presence of Sialkot District Police Officer Waqar Chauhan and eight other police officers who watched as silent audience. The gruesome video footage of this horrific incident is aired by private TV channels repeatedly which definitely is too much to bear for the deceased family or even common man that their hearts bust into tears.

Although Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry took sou motto notice of the news and DPO Sialkot and SP Investigation have been made OSD by the IG Punjab, is it enough? This was an inhumane act and it was a pity that police officials did nothing to stop people. Not only it was the duty of police to stop those who were committing the sinful act, but the people in the mob should also have shown moral courage to stop the horrific act. Not only DPO and other police officials but all those who were present there but did nothing for dying humanity, should be called culprits and punished strictly.

This was indeed an atrocious act on the part of people who carried it out and for those too who has watched and let it happen silently. Why we are forgetting that to kill a man is equal to killing humanity? The demotion or suspension of officials will not guarantee that such incidents could be stopped in future but an overhaul in the law enforcement procedures, Police department and public mind set probably is the need of the time.

    all those involved in the murder of these 2 innocent brothers should be given death penalty,there is no other punishment except death and death penalty……this was a barberic act,i saw a boy 12 year old hitting on the dead body of mughees,that boy is going to be a monster in future he had no fear killing a dead person….these killers were animals…..this video reminded me of national geographic where lions attack a deer……..beleive me…….i am sorry for the family of deceased brothers may Allah help the family of these Shaheed brothers…ameen.

    what i saw on TV i never want to see it again. A human being, even a non-muslim even an animal cannot do so what we own people did. What will be the situation of that father and mother who saw video of their own sons being dead after such a cruel game. I want that all the cuprits must be beaten like wise and must be dead in the same manner

    Maray ALLAH Please punish these cruel peoples like wise

    I think people of Pakistan are dead in all respects. They are brain dead, their hearts are not flash and blood. They are morally, religiously, and every humanly possible respects are a dead country. The way those moron spectators were standing and watching the blood shed and murder of those two young and inncoent looking kids it was shameful and most cruel and selfish thing humanly possible.
    I know that police in all these third world countries are corrupt but common people who believe in truth and justice should raise their voice collectively in every city of the country.

    Its a shame and disgrace…

    Dear mamoona;

    you are indeed rights in what you said; but what could be done. Just nothing. this gorry occurrence will be vanished away with the passage of time. this often happens in societies like ours. it is now high time to get united and take concerted steps to avoid such like happenings in the future. How we can be united is a question to be solved by NGOs, honest and dedicted politicians and free media. Muhammad iqbal Swabi, Khyber Pukhtoon khwa.

    Dear Ammara;

    Don’t be so scared. you like people must come forward to halt such like brutal acts. if we are only sitting in a corner and do nothing practical, we will be being crushed by such like acts. muhammad iqbal Swabi, Khyber Pukhtoon Khwa

    hang all those SOBs, the killers, the freaking spectators and the police eunuchs in public and then stone their disgraced dead bodies

  11. Aysha September 3, 2010 at 2:20 am #

    Mr Zahid have mentioned above that we should be paying attention to the other side of the story as well. My question to Mr. Zahid is that ” lets suppose for a second those two brothers were robber, even then, do robbers deserve to be killed like that???Were they convicted and proven to be robbers???. Mr. Zahid, this incident shows the wehshiana mentality of our nation. After watching this vedio, I realized first time, why Pakistanis are called the most dangerous people in the world. We are terrorists, not doubt about it.

    I MY SELF as a muslim ashamed on it

    this is a barbarian act and should be comdemed as strongly as one can. I think we should have to pay attention on long term solution after the culprits to their end. we should concentrate on the betterment of police behaviour and society .no csp officer has ever be punished in this country.I think the whole responsibility is on the hand of Dpo he is our
    culprit.This is now become the state case rather than agrieved party and I think nation own the biggest responsibility is of our ulma karam to teach people about the teachings of islam which is very clear about this.But the good thing is from respected CHIEF JUSTICE of PEOPLES OF PAKISTAN who took the notice immediately and orders for in qivery on the incident . we praised it very much.

  17. kevin allex August 26, 2010 at 4:43 am #

    i have no words to comment on that two innocent brothers.what we have receieved in past we are revealing now,their is no name to humanity and their is no name for humbleness.we are numb to see everything we we can comment for something but we cant handle that thing ourself,oh GOD just kill that people in a same way as they killed two innocent people and make them an example infront of the world.Oh GOD everything is upto you, we are never expecting anything like justice from these leaders oh GOD be a powerful leader to lead this humanity towards construction not towards destruction.

    Detail investigations are required to find out the truth behind this incident.

  20. sahra August 24, 2010 at 6:59 pm #

    this is truly the most horrific crime i have ever heard of 2 young boys healthy going to play cricket and were accused by one person (only allahs nos what sazah he will receive but i shed to even think allah maafi) to be theives which they were not then being beaten by barbaric animals who didnt even stop to think ok this is enough, POLICE who are supposed to be there for your safety are telling these animals to kill them,the people who where watching they are all to blame too for this to end this way they could have got together and stopped this, in the month of ramadhan devil is locked away for this time and he surley left his imprint in them i hope that there is a justice system in Pakistan and these animals are caught and that they get whatthey deserve is death by hanging it will be quick and nothing like these two angels had to go through but they should not be let to even walk on this earth for a minute longer MAY ALLAH GIVE THEIR FAMILY SAKOON AND SABBAR AMEEN.

  21. Zahid August 24, 2010 at 12:23 pm #

    There is flood of discussion over the sorrowful event during last week. But media have not disclosed one most important aspect of the incident. That is the root-cause of the whole tragedy.

    There is a Re-action to every Action. Question is: what was the ACTION on the part of unfortunate souls which gave rise to such a brutal RE-ACTION by killers, general public, even police officials.

    Is the media ignorant on this part of the story? It cannot be believed. They are either silent or giving misleading leads. This is not a good professionalism.

  22. Sara August 23, 2010 at 10:19 pm #

    Its really not a matter of we being Muslims or Pakistanis, this act clearly proves that our people, that is a commom man or a powerful politician have gone back to the ‘ stone age ‘.. The real question today is are we even humans??!! No, sadly we are not.. Even if we beat a dog like this, a witnessing dog will try to attack us and protect its own, so in reality a man’s best friend is far better than a man (Pakistani).. Plz don’t drag religion in it, religion has nothing to do with it, if you kill someone like this you have no right to be called a Human let alone a Muslim.. This is for sure not an isolated incident, this all has been happening since a long time now but thanks to technology people who can’t afford three times meals can afford a hi-tech mobile hence to give us a picture of a ‘ true pakistani’.. Shame on the people of Sialkot, home of the Great thinker Allama Iqbal, i am sure he must be crying in his grave for what was to be his Dream has turned into a Nightmare.. Shame on all of us, no wonder Allah is sending all these natural calamities to Pakistan!!

  23. Mansoor August 23, 2010 at 4:05 pm #

    It seems that people standing around and watching this gruesome torture were totally dehumanised. As if most of Pakistanis have been overpowered by their animal instincts. Some thing seriously wrong with their upbringing. Psycologists of the world help.

  24. zem August 23, 2010 at 3:46 pm #

    truly shameful act.we have become such a selfish n insensitive and mean nation that nothing could save us from the azaab of Allah.we are all responsible 4 this incident and we will soon be answerable to Allah.

  25. Sa'ad August 23, 2010 at 3:10 pm #

    I just found out about this yesterday. I am a Pakistani American and a Muslim. This has made my faith stronger. I couldn’t help crying at the horror that I witnessed yesterday. We all witnessed it as soon as we saw videos on youtube and watch the brothers’ grandfather cry on a international pakistani television. Everytime an atrocity like this happens anywhere – not just pakistan – we all become guilty whether we hear about it or not. Unfortunately most of the media here is busy with a Mosue “controversy”. Here’s my questions to the Pakistanis because this should matter to us more. I haven’t seen or heard anything like this. What makes people do the things they do? Attack another human being? Is it insanity? Whatever it is how do we keep these people from take a man’s or a woman’s right to live? Since we are all guilty for standing by and letting terrorists explode, or allowing incidents like this occur in a country that ironically isn’t so ‘pak’ anymore: We need to do whatever we can to help people like these boys. Anything to help their parents. Form a group wherever you are that is non-violent. That has a clear message to end human rights violations once and for all. Join other small groups. Write. Talk to your politician even if he/she is corrupt. Lets this as a lesson and change the country that you or your parents were born in. Lets join hands globally and take Pakistan back from ignorance, from cruelty, and from its enemies that want to keep it from progress and prosperity. I know we can do it. I am optimistic despite what people say and whatever has happened in the past. I know this country has what it takes to overcome. Its up to us Pakistanis. STOP WAITTING FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO FIX YOUR PROBLEMS. This is a call to action to create a group that will fight (without using violence) for our rights. If anyone is reading this do it wherever you are. Register it! Make a website! The pen is the greatest weapon we have to battle every problem we face from cruel and unusual punishment to poverty. No doubt the Creator will do justice, but it is up to us to protect the rights of each and every Pakistani. Just do it!
