    Salman Taseer: Thousands mourn Pakistan governor.

    BBC Asia Correspondent, Refute Iqbal:

    "Thousands of muslims have ignored the dictates of Jamat Ahle Sunnat, that were tenuously reported by the USMB correspondent known only as 'manifold', by attending, en masse, the funeral of the assassinated governor of Punjab, Salman Taseer."

    BBC - 'Contrary to that reported by manifold'.

    You can't be a moderate Muslim in Pakistan.

    Perhaps Slagger should learn the definition of 'contrary' since his link confirms rather than contradicts the story linked in the OP. :cuckoo:

    Perhaps sunnifold should look to his own house before throwing stones. I never claimed that this moderate group didn't direct muslims to ignore the funeral, I merely added a link that reported many muslims did, contrary to what they were told/warned, attend the funeral they were supposedly ordered not to attend.

    Salam Alaikum, sunnifold.

    Supposedly ordered? Are you claiming the report in both stories is false?

    I wonder why you didn't post about the actual moderate Muslims that did speak out against the Christian killings. :eusa_eh:
