Mohammad Farman Ali and Mohammad Arif Ali were sentenced to two years in jail for stealing a corpse from a grave and using it to make meat curry.
Because they killed no one and there is no law relating to cannibalism in Pakistan, the pair only served about two years in jail for desecrating a grave following their arrest in April 2011.
It all started after a 24-year-old woman, Saira Parveen, died of throat cancer and was buried by her relatives. The next morning, some women of the family visited her grave and found that it had caved in.
“We opened the grave, and were horrified to discover that the body had gone. We called the local elders, who called the police,” says Aijaz Hussain, the dead woman’s brother.
Now they are out and keeping a low profile. But the article notes they had troubled lives leading up to this arrest. What happens now? Farman Ali formerly admitted to attempting to caste a spell on his neighbors which, in order to be effective, meant “the brothers had to remain unclean and eat human flesh.”
No one would wish to live anywhere near these guys.
