The Middle East Institute is proud to host Shehrbano Taseer, daughter of Governor Salmaan Taseer, who was murdered this past January for speaking out against the misuse of Pakistan's blasphemy laws. The assassinations of Punjab Province Governor Salmaan Taseer and Federal Minister for Minorities Affairs Shahbaz Bhatti have raised concerns about the rise of religious extremism in Pakistan. Shehrbano Taseer will discuss her father's work and legacy and offer her thoughts on the state of religious minorities and the spread of extremism in Pakistan.

Speakers: Shehrbano Taseer, Marvin Weinbaum
