LAHORE: Saturday marked the first death anniversary of Maulana Sarfraz Naeemi, who was killed in a suicide bomb attack in Lahore.
Maulana Naeemi was known for his moderate view of Islam as well as his strong opposition to the Taliban. Naeemi was of the view that the current Taliban are not Islamic, but are rather supported by the West.
He had received several death threats for such statements and on Friday June 12, 2009 a suicide bomber managed to enter the maulana’s office where he detonated a bomb.
