Cannibal Brothers Abandon Families to Dig Up Bodies to Make Curry


Once married with children, both brothers were abandoned by their wives before their arrests in 2011. Arif Ali and his brother, Mohammad Farman Ali, were jailed for two years for stealing the body of a dead woman from her grave.

They later admitted to chopping her lower limbs and making them into meat curry. They were sentenced under the law of desecration of the grave, because Pakistan has no law relating to cannibalism.

Their sentences ended in May 2013. The brothers have since kept a low profile.

But apparently not low enough.

Police recovered the severed head of a child from the house of Mohammad Arif Ali; the identity of the child has not been determined, though from the brothers’ previous pattern of unearthing graveyards, the assumption is that they likely did something similar this time.

Indeed, neighbors notified police when they smelled the stench of rotting flesh from his house.

Personally, I’ve had lamb curry, goat curry, beef curry, chicken curry, and vegetarian curry, but never long pig curry.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
