One of our Pakistani guests on yesterday's programme said to me after we'd come off air, 'that was one of the saddest hours of my life'. He was referring to the number of Pakistanis who spoke or emailed to say that Salman Taseer deserved to die. That same despondency can be seen in any number of blogs and articles written by those Pakistanis who shared the former Governor of Punjab's vision for a moderate, liberal and tolerant nation.

We'll bring some of them together to discuss where they go from here.
