Thousands attend the rallies and demonstrations that were staged in different areas of Karachi on Friday to protest against the terrorist attacks and the government’s support to the pro-terrorists Saudi policy on Syria.
The supporters of Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen turned out largely in the protest gatherings following the call of the MWM’s secretary general Allama Raja Nasir Abbas Jafari.
The protestors raised slogans against the pro-U.S. and pro-Israel policies of the Saudi monarchy and urged the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to stay away from the Saudi camp in view of the bitter past of such sorts of alliances with the kingdom that included support to Taliban in Afghanistan.
Protest demonstrations were staged outside Shia mosques in Malir, Nazimabad, North Karachi, Kharadar and Abbas Town where the demonstrators were carrying the banners and placards inscribed with slogans demanding military operation to eliminate the terrorists.
The MWM leaders namely Allama Abdullah Mutaheri, Maulana Munawar Naqvi, Maulana Ali Anwar Jafari, Ali Hussain Naqvi, Engineer Raza Naqvi, Maulana Ali Afzal, Allama Baqar Zaidi and Ahsan Abbas spoke to the protestors.
They said that the ideology of founding fathers of Pakistan mainly Mohammad Ali Jinnah and Allama Iqbal should not be ignored in the policy for Middle East and Muslim world. They said that Allama Iqbal clearly opposed monarchies and their interference into Syrian affairs alongside his opposition to the Western imperialism. They said that Prime Minister’s joint statement with the Saudi Crown Prince gave the impression that he bought Pakistan against Syrian legitimate government at $183 credit guarantees.
They urged the Prime Minister to learn the lesson from the past because it was not Pervez Musharraf but Saudi monarchy that humiliated him by forcing him to sign a covert deal and then making that deal public to vindicate the position of Pervez Musharraf against him.
