I am unable to draw some kind of opinion from the Murder of Salman Taseer, although it was done on religious grounds still I feel court has to put this issue in trial and decide something fair for both sides. Also I request religious scholars and experts to clear all confusions and tell their opinion. For me it is only a difference of opinion. Here is the life shots of Salman Taseer, the ex-Punjab governor and Mumtaz Qadri, the Elite force guard.
