Nadir Soofi and Elton Simpson were honored for their ‘martyrdom’ after they were killed attacking a ‘Draw Mohammed’ event in Garland, Texas.
The terrorists killed in Texas on Sunday while attempting to carry out an attack have been honored as martyrs in Pakistan.
Around 100 people gathered to hold a memorial service in Peshawar for the gunmen. A cleric delivered a eulogy saying “The exhibition of the blasphemous caricatures was unbearable for Muslims. It was shocking, sad, tragic and intolerable. We have gathered here to pay tribute and to carry out the Islamic rites for the Muslims who tried to stop it and sacrificed their lives and they will now be called ‘Martyrs for the prophet’s honor.’”
Ghausia Madrassa, the Pakistani Islamic school whose students are pictured protesting, also held a demonstration to honor the Islamist militants who carried out the attack on satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in January.
