PESHAWAR- A cleric from Peshawar today led a memorial service for the two brothers who attacked the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris.

Mohammad Chishti, who runs a religious seminary led the prayers and praised the assault. At least 40 people attended, with some carrying banners criticizing the magazine. They admired the two brothers, who massacred 12 people in the newspaper attack last week.

Anyone who commits blasphemy should be killed, Chishti said.

Charlie Hebdo ridiculed Islam by drawing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).  Such depictions are considered blasphemous by Muslims.
