The women, identified as Razia Hanfi, 21, and Ayesha Nomani, 17, both daughters of Allah Noor, and Umra Aman, 24, daughter of Din Badshah arrived at the Jamia Islamia Falahul Binaat, Multan Road within the limits of Cantt Police Station at around 7 am.

Reports add that the teacher had been accused of blasphemy. However, there has been no official confirmation of the same.

In a statement issued by the DPO, it was said that at 7:05 am, three females teachers all (teenagers) in a madrassa of their own, slaughtered one of their former colleagues this morning in front of Madrassa Jamia Islamia Falahul Binaat. The attack was based on the alleged difference of opinion on some religious issues. It included an allegation that the victim was impressed by Maulana Tariq Jameel and that she had committed blasphemy.

The DPO revealed that Umema, 13, daughter of Shah Noor, saw a dream upon which the three teachers acted. During the initial search, a register containing details of the dreams has been recovered. All four girls are reportedly arrested and a case has been registered while an investigation is underway.

There is a large stigma associated with blasphemy in Pakistan. In fact, even unfounded claims can spark mobs and violence. It is known to be widely misused for personal vendettas, primarily targeting minorities.
