Pakistanis Stage New Protests against Anti-Islam Film

pakistanis stage new protests against anti-islam film

Thousands of Pakistani protestors staged new demonstrations on September 22 against a U.S.-made anti-Islam film, a day after at least 23 were killed and over 200 injured on the government designated Yaum-i-Ishq-i-Rasool.

The protests were peaceful, in contrast to the previous day’s demonstrations.

More than 5,000 protesters marched towards the parliament in Islamabad, including hundreds of women, chanting “We Love Our Holy Prophet”‌ and “Punishment for Those Who Humiliated Our Prophet”‌.

Some 500 people from the group Jamaat-ud-Dawa staged a protest in front of the U.S. Consulate in the eastern city of Lahore, chanting “The U.S. Deserves Only One Remedy -- Jihad, Jihad”‌.

Religious groups said they were also planning demonstrations in Karachi, the scene of the worst violence on September 21, after the funerals of some of those killed during the protests.

Protests against the film “Innocence of Muslims”‌, which disrespects the Holy Prophet, have erupted across the Muslim world and tens of thousands took to the streets across Asia and the Middle East as Western missions closed amid fears of violence.
