Some Muslim students have beaten their Christian classmate to death after drinking from the same glass as one of them.
Sharoon Masih, a Christian teenager has been beaten to death by his classmates for drinking from the same glass as a Muslim.
According to Daily Mail UK, high-flying Sharoon Masih, 17, was battered by fellow students in a classroom in the Vehari District in Punjab, Pakistan, on just his fourth day at a new school.
Shockingly, the boy’s teacher was in the room when the brutal attack took place, but claims he didn’t see anything because he was reading a newspaper.
Sharoon’s parents had saved money to send their son to MC Model Boys Government High School Burewala and District Vehari in an attempt to pursue higher education.
From the day he started, on August 25, he was subjected to abuse from Muslim boys for being a Christian.
His mother Razia Bibi warned Sharoon not to mix with the boys who practiced Islam after one told him: ‘You’re a Christian don’t dare sit with us if you want to live,’ according to the British Pakistani Christians charity.
Bibi told the British Pakistani Christians said: ‘My son was a kind-hearted, hard-working and affable boy. He has always been loved by teachers and pupils alike and shared great sorrow that he was being targeted by students at his new school because of his faith.
‘Sharoon and I cried every night as he described the daily torture he was subjected to.
‘He only shared details about the violence he was facing. He did not want to upset his father because he had such a caring heart for others.
‘The evil boys that hated my child are now refusing to reveal who else was involved in his murder.
Nevertheless one day God will have His judgement.’ She told the i Newspaper his loss was ‘huge’ to the family with whom he shared ‘great intimacy’.
Bibi accused the police of not conducting a proper investigation in the wake of her son’s death.
Pupils suggested the teacher overseeing the classroom had even ignored the beating, but he has claimed he didn’t notice the attack because he was reading.
In conflicting accounts, the headteacher said Sharoon was killed in session between classes which meant no teachers witnessed it.
The boy accused of killing Sharoon is allegedly claiming he went for the Christian after he smashed the screen on his phone, dismissing earlier claims it was over the 17-year-old bumping into his foot.
