Supporters of Pakistani religious parties rallied Oct. 9 in Karachi in support of Mumtaz Qadri, convicted of killing Punjab’s governor, Salman Taseer, in 2011. Pakistan’s Supreme Court has upheld the death sentence for Qadri, a former police officer convicted of killing the governor he had accused of blasphemy. Authorities say Qadri shot and killed Taseer in in Islamabad days after Taseer defended a Christian woman accused of desecrating a Qur’an. The banner on the right reads “Un-Islamic decision is unacceptable.”
