Mumtaz Qadri, center, the accused killer of Punjab Gov. Salman Taseer, arrives at court in Islamabad, Pakistan, on Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2011. More than 500 Muslim scholars  praised the man suspected of killing the Pakistani governor because the politician opposed blasphemy laws that mandate death for those convicted of insulting Islam. The group of scholars and clerics known as Jamat Ahle Sunnat is affiliated with a moderate school of Islam and represents the mainstream Barelvi sect. The group said in a statement Wednesday that no one should pray for Mr. Taseer or express regret for his murder. (AP Photo/B.K.Bangash)
