The host, who is doing three consecutive shows from London this week, opened the show on the rainy streets of London with a message of defiance and unity.

The police barred media from publishing images of Yakub Abdul Razak Memon's funeral, apparently fearing a backlash against the execution that many said was driven by politics.
