Christian Killed in Pakistan for Drinking from Same Cooler as Muslims

Written by Joe Scudder

A teacher is accused of doing nothing about a Christian killed by other students.

Whether or not the teacher deliberately ignored the students committing violence that got a Christian killed, the attack reveals something about Islam in some countries.

They were classmates.

Muslims are discouraged from drinking from the same vessels as non-Muslims in Islam, and another Pakistani Christian — Asia Bibi — ended up languishing on death row for years following a dispute over her fitness to carry a water bowl.

Sharoon’s punishment when he drank from the cooler on his fourth day at the school was more immediate, with classmates subjecting him to a fatal beating.

Early reports suggested the teacher present at the time of the attack — named as Nazir Mol — turned a blind eye as Sharoon was pummelled to death, although he claimed he simply did not notice the beating as he was reading a newspaper.

The school’s headteacher suggested the attack actually took place between classes with no teacher present — but the teacher has since been dismissed from his post.
