Last year on 15th August 2010 two Sialkot brothers were brutally murdered in open public in the presence of Police, this was the most shameful act that has ever been done by sialkoti’s.
The two brothers were named Mughis and Muneeb aka The Butt Brothers, they belonged to one of the most respectable family of Sialkot and were very kind and humble. One of them was a Hafiz and they were quite young maybe aged under 18 both of them. They loved to play cricket. and this was the craze which brought them near to their death. It was Ramadan when one day both the boys got up early in the morning and got ready for a cricket match, they met their mother and left their home, while they were on the way, they got involved in an incident. Their are many voices to what happened.
i.e. few said that while they were on the way they heard some one shouting for help, and they went to rescue him and found him dead later people saw them there and caught them and labelled them as murderers.
few said that they were very quarrelsome and they intentionally killed a boy and tried to loot him.
whatever was the story, mob of huge men surrounded them and in open street they started beating them, when they got tired, they picked up wooden logs and started hitting them with this, after that they hurled stones at them and when the completely died, they were tied at the back of a lorry and were moved around the city to spread terror. This all happened infront of Police but they encouraged people to beat them.
I was so much broken up by this cause, was totally saddened up as to what happened was never right, even if they were robbers they were not to be beaten like this, this was all Inhumane. I cried though and didn’t fast that day as i saw their video of being beaten up till death, i wasn’t able to eat that whole day.
I visited their family few times and it was really sad to see their parents waiting for justice, they enquiry commission was set up and then it took an year till this day, they had been doing hearing and hearings again and again.
But just today. Right now. Justice has been delivered, which was in their fate.
Some 23 persons were arrested and Death Sentence for 7, life sentence for 6 and 10 Police officers are sentenced 3 years
