KARACHI - Thousands of people on Sunday took part in 'Namoos-e-Mustafa' march taken out to protest against a US-made blasphemous film on the call of the Jamat-e-Islami. Various segments of society marched from Mazar-e-Quaid to Tibet Centre to protest against the sacrilegious film. People belonging to different schools of thought, including students, teachers, lawyers, religious scholars, labourers, traders, industrialists, professionals and Christian community members also participated in the march, and vowed to lay down their lives to safeguard the honour and prestige of the Holy Prophet (PBUH). The rally participants were carrying placards and banners, inscribed with slogans against the US, silence of the Pakistani government and makers of the blasphemous film. Effigy of the US president, Barrack Obama and a flag of the US, were also burnt. The protesters also chanted slogans against apologetic behavior of the Muslim rulers.Addressing the Namoos-e-Mustafa march, JI Sindh leader Asadullah Bhutto said the entire Muslim Ummah was united against this evil conspiracy. He said that President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf were betraying the masses through their lip-service, instead of taking solid measures. He demanded the government to deport the US ambassador with a status of 'Persona non Greta'. He said today, lovers of the Prophet (PBUH) were being jailed, while Raymond Davis, who killed two Pakistani youngsters in cold-blood was freed. Bhutto termed the march as a referendum against the US, and demanded the government to take solid measures on the international level for legislation against blasphemy. JI Karachi chief Muhammad Hussain Mehanti demanded the international community to formulate a law against blasphemy. He said that freedom of speech did not mean that anyone was free to hurt the sentiments of the billions of Muslims across the world. He warned that the march would be taken out towards Islamabad, if the so-called superpower, USA, didn’t ban the wicked film.Other JI leaders Naseem Siddiqui,Nasraullah Sajhi and Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rahman, in their address, said that the protest of the peoples proved that they would sacrifice their lives for Islam and the Prophet (PBUH).
