LAHORE – The Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) top leadership termed the blasphemous film prepared in the US as religious terrorism demanded of the government for the expulsion of the American ambassador in Islamabad. JI chief, Syed Munawar Hasan, and secretary general, Liaqat Baloch made this demand through a joint statement on Thursday. They also announced a countrywide protest against the sacrilegious film on Friday (today). They urged the people to join the protest to demonstrate their love for the Holy Prophet. The JI leaders said that pastor Terry Jones who had first indulged in desecration by setting a copy of the Holy Quran on fire, had now prepared a blasphemous film with the cooperation of Israel that contained highly derogatory material against the Holy Prophet. They said instead of checking such condemnable activities in line with the UN Charter, the US and the Western governments were patronizing the blasphemer under the cover of freedom of expression. The JI leaders maintained that the US and the Western countries were intentionally infuriating the sentiments of the Muslims in order to plunge the world in a world war. Meanwhile, Liaqat Baloch has demanded of the government to raise the issue of illegal construction of the Nemobazgo Dam on the River Indus on international forum. He remarked that India was constructing dams illegally on Cheenab and Jehlum Rivers but the authorities concerned seemed to be least bothered about it. IJT activists, police clash: Dozens of Islami Jamiat Talba (IJT) activists clashed with the police in the Muslim Town police area on Thursday while protesting against the non-arrest of the killers of their leader, who was murdered some three months ago.

The protesters chanted slogans against the police and blocked the road, creating worst traffic mess in the busy locality. They also demanded the government to ensure immediate arrest of the killers of Awais Aqeel, a leader of the IJT Punjab University, who had been shot dead by gunmen three months ago.
