Lawyers showered the suspected killer of a prominent Pakistani governor with rose petals when he arrived at court Wednesday, and an influential Muslim scholars group praised the assassination of the outspoken opponent of laws that order death for those who insult Islam.
Mr. Qadri, who purportedly shot Mr. Taseer more than 20 times in the back outside a restaurant in Islamabad, told the court that he acted after the governor criticized Pakistani laws that mandate the death sentence for anyone who insults Islam.
"I am proud of it," Mr. Qadri was quoted as saying by his defense lawyer, Saimul Haq Satti. "There is no other use of my life but to sacrifice it for the sake of the Prophet Muhammad."
