(NANKANA SAHAB, Pakistan) - On 22 November 2012 Mr. Nadeem, 22 years old, was accused of Qur'an burning by residents of Mohala Usmani Khoo Nankana Sahab. He died in the custody of Police at the Warburton police station.

Mr. Nadeem was accused by the locality and arrested by City Police Station Nankana Sahab but due to security apprehension on Islami Month of Muharam Al Haram, he was handed over to the Warburton Police, where he died.

According to some Muslims Ulmas, Ameer of Almi Majlas Tahafiz Khatam-E-Nobuvat, Haji Abdul Hameed Rehmni and members of Peace Committee Alama Muhab Ali Tahir, made the allegation of Qur'an burning. The charge against him was not proved.

Mr. Nadeem's father, Mr. Yousaf, said that his son was abnormal and mentally upset; he explained that he was not willing to take any legal action against anyone in the matter.

According to the initial investigation, DPO Nanakan Ghulam Mubashar Macan said the 22-year old Mr. Nadeem 'died a natural death'.

The pressure and terror surrounding blasphemy accusations has doubled in recent time, and the situation becomes more intense when these incident happen. Nobody knows the reality or what the real factors are behind this death, said LEAD's Chief and President PCC Lahore Advocate Sardar Mushtaq M.Gill.
