JI announce rallies against blasphemous cartoons

KARACHI: Protest demonstrations would be held in the whole country from tomorrow on the call of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) against the publication of blasphemous caricatures of Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in French.

Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Karachi chief Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman said the protest demonstrations would be carried out in Karachi, Lahore, Multan and Peshawar.

The biggest demonstration would be held at Choburgi Chowk in Lahore, which would be addressed by JI leaders of other political parties. Thousands of people belonging to all walks of life would attend the protest demonstration.

The JI leader urged the whole nation to attend the protest rallies and demonstration against the publication of blasphemous caricatures of Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in French.

Naeem said that the West is showing extremist while publishing the blasphemous caricatures. He said all parties in Pakistan and Muslim countries at the international level should take notice of the issue. He said the war of civilization is being started while instigating the sentiments of Muslims.

On the appeal of JI, the Ulema will deliver Juma sermons on the topic of protection of honor and dignity of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).  The Ulema will inform the people about the conspiracies of Christians and Jews against the Muslims.

Five years ago, the blasphemous caricatures depicting Prophet (PBUH) were first published by a French satirical magazine, whose editorial offices were attacked by gunmen in 2015, killing 12 people.

Since the beheading of the teacher this month, the blasphemous sketches have been displayed in France in solidarity, angering some Muslims.
