be hanged. her acquittal in october last year triggered days of nationwide demonstrations. i who are who are in every corner of the country the sons of islam have voiced opposition to the supreme court verdict by going on to the streets. what kind of a verdict is this from the supreme court of an islamic republic which is troubling muslims but satisfying infidels. and. demonstrations were any cooled off when the government agreed to bobby b. from leaving the country pending today's verdict but this is a case already linked to the killings of at least two people. the governor of punjab province some and his ia seen here on the right has the sustenance of by his bodyguard in twenty eleven speaking in b.p.'s defense. later the same year federal
