Killing in the name of religion by Dr. Qaisar Rashid

It is astonishing to learn that an educated (BBA graduate), 27-year-old man and parent of a baby girl, Saad Aziz, could kill Sabeen Mahmud, The 2nd Floor’s (T2F’s) café director. If the findings of this incident are generalised for the greater good of society, it is indicative of at least five major phenomena prevalent in society. Firstly, radicalisation is not just confined to those educated at a religious seminary and is more viral than it was first believed to be. Secondly, a counterculture of religious bigotry exists amongst the (western) educated lot.
