    • He killed some one in cold blood. He killed someone who was in his protection (Amaan) which can't be right.

      • are u crazy.what are u saying.he did good because taseer was changing our islamic laws and he abused.qadri did which other couldnt/

  1. this judgement is extremely illogical …he is our hero and we cant let them to be hanged..

  2. i hate how stupid pakistanis could get, everyone knows and if u actually watch salman taseer;s interviews, he said i am not going against the prophet, but this is a law which is being mis used and he was right, people mis used it many times, i can go kill anyone i want and say he said bad things about prophet, they used to do it in villages many times… shariah is perfect, but it is a law, and laws are implemented and follwed by people, if the people themselevs are not good, how can they implemented and follow, shariah…

    he simply said, do it in a way so that no one is unjustly killed.. but

    because we pakistanis r stupid, we will take his one line abut we will not loook at his message, obv we r a nation of idiots

  3. May ALLAH will make you rise up with Salman Taseer, and we all with Ghazi Mumtaz Qadri (Damat Barkat humul Aliya); AMIN
