Religion of ?

From Christian Today:

Lawyers in Pakistan are investigating a report that up to 30 men tortured and gang-raped a young Christian man for refusing to convert to Islam.

The victim is seriously injured and unable to move, Release International’s partner in Pakistan has reported. However, according to the Centre for Legal Aid Assistance and Settlement (CLAAS) the police are keeping him locked up and have denied him medical treatment.
But bad people doing bad things isn't the half of it. Bad people doing bad things with impunity is much worse. It's the Ballad of Hattie Carol that Bob Dylan's heirs won't sing about:
The police are also refusing to register the rape following a counter-claim made by his principal attacker – “a man of influence”, Release International has told Christian Today.
Let's not upset Islam by pointing out that something is wrong here.
