Karachi: Respect and honor of the Last Prophet of God, Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him) is the common denominator of Ummah and also its binding force, said Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) amir Sirajul Haq, addressing a mammoth rally in Karachi on Friday.
The rally named “Hurmat-e-Rasool (PBUH) Rally” was staged by JI Karachi chapter on Main University Road after Asar prayer that marched from the NIPA Flyover to Hassan Square. Thousands of people carrying banners and placards attended the rally. They raised slogans against the blasphemous French magazine and lukewarm response of the rulers of Muslim world.

He said we will sacrifice the last drop of our blood for the honor of our Prophet. He said he had appealed the Prime Minister of Pakistan Mian Mohammad Nawaz Sharif to call a meeting of Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). He said when the government did not take action on his appeal; he also contacted with representatives of different Muslim countries and appealed them to hold joint protests.
