A countrywide protest was lodged on Friday that was observed as a day of loyalty and solidarity the martyrs of Pakistan on an appeal from Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen.
Demonstrations were held across the country after Friday prayers. Protestors were carrying banners and placards outside the mosques and raising slogans against the terrorists and their allies.
Protest rallies were staged in Kharadar, Abbas Town, Drigh Road, Malir, Landhi and Steel Town.
Allama Hassan Zafar Naqvi, Allama Mukhtar Imami, Maulana Deedar Ali Jalbani, Allama Sadiq Raza Taqvi, Hassan Hashmi, Maulana Ali Anwar, Mubashir Hassan and other office bearers of the MWM spoke to the protestors.
They said that the PMLN government has failed to formulate any policy against the terrorists. They said that idea of an all partiesâ€™ leadersâ€™ conference on national security is good but such gatherings were also held in the past.
They said that the national leadership must not forget the fact that there was a national consensus that terrorists must be eliminated but the talk of talks with the terrorists is negation of respect to public demand.
They reiterated their demand that an army operation be launched against the terrorists. They said that terrorists deserve no mercy and any leniency to deal with this life and death issue would be deleterious for Pakistan and great Pakistani nation.
They urged the national leadership to harden their stance against the terrorists and now action should speak louder than their words. They said that 71,000 Pakistanis have been martyred due to menace of terrorism and nobody can pardon their murderers.
Meanwhile, congregations were held in Shia mosques where faithful prayed for the great martyrs of Pakistan.
