PESHAWAR - Hundreds of activists of Sunni Tehreek (ST) Sunday staged a protest demonstration against handing down two times death sentence to Mumtaz Qadri for killing former governor Punjab Salman Taseer. They announced payment of Rs 200 million as blood money (Diyat) to the heirs of the killed seeking Qadris safe release. The angry activists were holding placards inscribed with different slogans in favour of release of Qadri and against the announcement of the said punishment for him. Led by member ST Central Committee Inam-ul-Haq Qadri, the protesters gathered in front of Peshawar Press Club. They were chanting slogans against the government. They said Mumtaz Qadri was an undisputed hero of the Muslim Ummah, adding that it was obligatory upon every Muslim to render sacrifice for the honour and dignity of the Holy Prophet (PBUH). Addressing on the occasion, Inam-ul-Haq Qadri said the government was not able to implement the blasphemy law, so millions of people like Mumtaz Qadri were there to struggle for implementing the Islamic punishment on the blasphemers. He announced blood money worth Rs 200m for the heirs of the killed to seek safe release of Mumtaz Qadri. He said if the government could manage blood money for release of Raymond Davis, ST was also ready to announce the similar package for the release of Mumtaz Qadri. He said ST believed in the supremacy of law and it appealed to the court not to decide this serious matter against Quran and Sunnah. He said they would continue their protest demonstrations until Mumtaz Qadri was released.
