Hundreds gathered at the Nishtar Park on Sunday to protest the blasphemous acts against the Holy Prophet (PBUH), particularly an anti-Islam film made in the US.
The congregation was organised by the Tehreek-e–Bedari Ummat Mustafa (TBUM). The participants of the event pledged not to spare the people responsible for the film.
Speaking at the rally, TBUM leaders Jawad Naqvi and Maulana Mirza Yousuf Hussain demanded that the government should raise its voice against the blasphemous acts against the Holy Prophet (PBUH). They said all religious parties would stand united against the US on the issue.
They stressed the need to expose the actual culprits behind the anti-Islam moves being witnessed time and again.
Pointing out the US as the real enemy, they said Pakistan had become America’s slave and its rulers were making policies aimed at appeasing the superpower. “The whole nation should stand against America and expose the real culprits,” said Hussain.
