Vigil for Salmaan Taseer: File photo

On Jan 4, 2011, the Governor of Punjab Salmaan Taseer was assassinated by his bodyguard who believed in the propaganda that had been orchestrated against Taseer falsely accusing him of ‘blasphemy’ (See: Salmaan Taseer: The political context of a ‘religious’ assassination, my article for Viewpoint). Vigils commemorating him are planned in several cities around Pakistan. Here is the information I have about some of them:

* Islamabad: Kohsar Market, 5 pm
* Lahore: Liberty Roundabout, 5 pm – Facebook event
* Karachi: Do Talwar, 8 pm – Facebook event
