Muslim groups in Pakistan are so deeply obsessed with their community politics that they do not have the courage to at least tell their supporters that mobs and individuals have no legal and Islamic rights to punish anyone for any crime whatsoever. #ConnectTheDots #Salman Taseer #Blasphemy #Islamists #Mumtaz Qadri
