Many people were in favor or releasing the killer of Salman Taseer but law and the persons responsible for making law and order does not think that way and they announced the death sentence against the killer.
Chairmen of Islamic ideological council Maulana Muhammad Sherani said that Mumtaz Qadri had done a crime and he is fulfilling his punishment by hanging and the orders of judge are correct against him. Supreme court has rejected the petition of Mumtaz Qadri. No one is allowed to kill a person on behalf of religious bases and according to the constitution the person who does such act should be hanged.
