Over 7,000 sympathisers of Salman Taseer’s killer booked in Pakistan

Islamabad, March 3 (IANS) Over 7,000 people in Karachi, Pakistan, who protested the execution of then Punjab governor Salman Taseer’s killer Mumtaz Qadri, were booked for promoting enmity between groups, rioting and misuse of loudspeaker, police said on Thursday.

The FIR has been registered on behalf of the state against some leaders who blocked M.A. Jinnah Road, misused the loudspeaker and used abusive language against state institutions during their protest, reports Dawn.

The suspects have been booked under sections of the Pakistan Penal Code and Loudspeakers Act, said Soldier Bazaar police official Irshad Soomro.

The self-confessed killer of Taseer was hanged in Rawalpindi on February 29 after an anti-terrorism court convicted and sentenced him to death in October 2011.

Soon after the news of the hanging became public a large number of people came out on the streets and protested against the government.
