Pakistani farmer Arshad Mehmood has been filled with pride since his son stabbed two people outside the former offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris last week, in the latest attack to expose the violent consequences of blasphemy allegations.
Zaheer Hassan Mehmood, who was born in Pakistan, has confessed to the attack, saying he was motivated by the magazine's recent republication of cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed, which are proscribed in Islam.
"In my opinion, what he did was very good," Arshad told AFP.
"The person who kills those who disrespect the prophet goes to heaven, and his whole family goes to heaven," Arshad said.
"Because of this, I feel very good that my son did such a good deed."
The assailant's mother Rukhsana Begum added that her son had told the family about the attacks in advance, and had asked for their prayers.
"He told us that on Friday after the Friday prayers he would do it. He also called one of his friends and told him that he saw the holy prophet in his dream and he will go and do this," said Begum.
Back in Kothli Qazi, the latest attack triggered celebrations, Arshad Mehmood said, with neighbours flocking to their home to congratulate the family.
"The whole village is extremely proud of what he's done," said neighbour Haji Qaiser.
"Wherever you go, they are talking about it."
