According to our correspondent, the religious party workers protested today’s verdict in which the Anti-Terrorism Court sentenced one person to death and five others to life imprisonment for lynching the student who was accused of blasphemy. Sources said JI’s District Amir and JUI-F’s provincial General Secretary were leading the workers, who showered rose petals on the accused and welcomed them as ‘Ghazis’ and ‘heroes’. Reports said six of the acquitted reached Mardan, two had gone to Swat while others were on their way. - Samaa
