Civil Society recorded its protested in Islamabad on August 14 the day of independence, against the rallies taken out by lethal Sipah Sahaba Pakistan (SSP) and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) in guise of banned Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ) across Pakistan.
A protest demonstration outside Islamabad press club was led by Civil Society representative Gul-e-Zehra. The protestors were holding placard and banners with outcries against the failure of on-going National Action Plan.
The representatives of Civil Society addressed the demonstrator claiming rallies of Banned outfits roaming freely in the streets of Pakistan profess lawlessness and failure of governments writ in Pakistan. Either the government is frail to enforce its injunction or is in liaison with the outfits, they alleged. It is contradictory to the prevailing National Action Plan enforced by the government.
Despite Islamabad administration claiming that they have given no permission to the banned outfits to take out rallies in the city, the members demanded a case to be filed against them to have done otherwise.
