During the Friday sermon at the Shahi Masjid when Anwar was in toilet, mentally-challenged Rashiduddin stepped out of the hotel and walked for a minute to be among worshippers.
He later went to the prayer leader and uttered some words infuriating hundreds of people present in the mosque.
Several people lunged towards him. However, prayer leader Maulana Khaleequz Zaman stopped them saying the person was mentally unstable, and handed him over to the police.
Rashiduddin, the mentally unstable man, is now facing blasphemy charges in Pakistan -- the punishment for which is death.
This is what his brother has to say:
“We would be first to condemn Rashiduddin for his utterances and even won’t mourn his death sentence and execution if doctors declare his mental condition to be sound,” he said.
What a desolate and despairing society.
