Rallies against Nato supplies restoration
Posted on 11 months ago
Demonstrations were organized by the Difa-e-Pakistan Council (DPC), a joint platform of various religious and political parties, in all main cities and towns in the country to express anger at the government's decision.
In the southwestern city of Quetta, demonstrators burnt the portrait of President Barrack Obama, US and NATO flags. Some youths beat the picture of President Obama with shoes.
A large number of people marched in the port city of Karachi and lashed out at the government for allowing its land routes for supplies to USand NATO forces.
Speaking to the rally, Jamaat-e-Islami leader Muhammad Hussain Mehanti said the government's reopening of Nato supplies is against the will of people.
Participants at the rally were holding placards and banners inscribed with anti-US slogans.
Mehanti said the United States had become a big threat to the security of the region, especially as it has turned a peaceful Afghanistan into a battlefield.
Jamaat-ud-Daawa and other groups also staged demonstrations in Karachi, in which the speakers vowed to mobilize public opinion against the government's decision.
Demonstrations and rallies were also held in parts of Sindh province, of which Karachi is the capital, against the resumption of Nato supply routes.
In Lahore, Jamaat-e-Isalmi, Jamiat-e- Ahli Hadith and several other parties took out processions and condemned the unblocking NATO supply line.
