Minority citizens have joined ranks with their Muslim brethren in protesting against the American endorsement of the blasphemous anti-Islam film, warning of a march towards the US embassy in Islamabad if those responsible for the blasphemy were not put behind bars.
To condemn the silence and inaction of American polity against perpetrators of the film ‘Innocence of Muslims’, several dozen Christians staged a protest rally outside the National Press Club on Sunday.
The rally was organized by the Ahl-e-Kitaab (Minorities wing) of Jamaat-e-Islami.
JI Islamabad President Mian Aslam addressed the rally and demanded the government expel the US envoy to Pakistan.
The JI leader thanked the Christian community for joining ranks with their Muslim brothers in protesting against the “controversial film based on hate material against Islam and the Holy Prophet (PBUH)”.
The JI demanded the United States government facilitate a trial of the perpetrators in the International Court of Justice as international terrorists on charges of destroying international peace.
JI Ahl-e-Kitaab Wing President Yunous Gil said, “We Christians strongly condemn the heinous acts of intentionally attacking the beliefs of any religion(s), and Christian sentiments have also been hurt by this controversial movie.”
Father Rehman Micheal Hakim urged the protesting Muslim-Christian factions to maintain unity and brotherhood amongst themselves and said the “atheistic club” neither respected any religion nor their sacred personalities.

  2. As an American Christian I also condemn this very bad movie that was made by a radical to insult the great religion of Islam…however! I am thankful everyday that I live in a country that will protect my right to free speech…as we say, I may completely disagree with what you are saying but I will vigorously defend your right to say it…

    • Would you vigorously defend the person who insults your mother or daughter?.. With freedom of speech comes responsibility…your freedom ends where my nose starts.. there is no such thing as absolute freedom…be it at an office or a school, there are rules that people have to follow…. and basically, you are simply a nasty person, if you do use your "freedom of speech" to incite hatred, insult, demonize and spread racism, and such a "freedom" should not be defended. as all it does is instigate violence and more hatred.
