By Rameeza Ahmad | 31 Oct, 2018

Punjab Governor Salmaan Taseer was assassinated on January 4, 2011, in Islamabad by Mumtaz Qadri, a part of his security detail.

Salmaan Taseer was killed because of his public support for Asia Bibi, a Christian woman who was acquitted by the Supreme Court today after she spent over 9 years in jail, falsely accused of blasphemy.

Now 8 years later, the woman he stood up for has finally acquitted and will not face the death penalty as a lot of people had demanded and expected. Salmaan Taseer lost his life because of publicly speaking up for Asia Bibi and today, as the landmark decision was given by the Supreme Court of Pakistan, people are remembering Salmaan Taseer and his sacrifice for justice.

He was heavily involved with trying to free Asia bibi.

 

Today everyone is thinking of the late governor.

 

And of course, it’s an emotional day for the family as well.

 

His son Shehryar Taseer also had a message for the media.

This is a good day, the Supreme Court has upheld justice and made sure an innocent woman is not hanged for a crime she never committed. Salmaan Taseer had to die in order to ensure her freedom and his sacrifice was not in vain.
