To express solidarity with Rohingya Muslims, several politico-religious parties besides general public and students are holding protests against the atrocities that meted out against the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.
Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief Sirajul Haq has announced taking out a protest march in Islamabad on Friday (tomorrow). The rally will be taken out from Aabpara Chowk, Islamabad and will march towards the Myanmar’s embassy. It is expected that at least 2,000 to 2,500 people will participate in the protest rally.
Sirajul Haq has urged the government to expel the ambassador of Myanmar from Pakistan over the military-led violence against the Muslim minority in Myanmar. “Our protest will continue till all the atrocities and barbarianism against them come to an end,” he said.
The JI is also taking out a protest rally in Karachi on September 10 from Mazar-e-Quaid (Quaid-e-Azam’s mausoleum) to Tibet Centre on the main MA Jinnah Road.
