Supporters of Pakistan’s largest Islamic party Jamate-e-Islami burn the effigy of Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders during a rally in Karachi, April 6, 2008.
Over 25,000 Pakistanis protested today over Geert Wilder’s film, Fitna and the Mohammed Cartoons.
More than 25,000 people rallied Sunday in the largest protest in Pakistan so far against an anti-Koran film made by a Dutch lawmaker, urging their government to expel the Netherlands ambassador.
“They call this freedom of expression, but it’s freedom of aggression,” keynote speaker Munawwar Hasan, a leader of the main Islamic party Jamat-e-Islami, told the crowd as it chanted “God is great.”
Wearing head bands inscribed “We are ready to sacrifice our lives for the sanctity of the prophet,” they marched for two kilometers (more than a mile), then gathered on Karachi’s main street to listen to speeches.
They also burned an effigy of Wilders as speakers said their government should sever diplomatic ties with Western countries supporting the publishers of cartoons defaming the Prophet Muhammad.
Don’t these fools realize that others in the Western world are criticizing their religion for its hypocrisy especially regarding political, religious tolerance and violence?
Let them protest Wilder’s film and the Danish cartoonists but should others protest or criticize Islam – then off with their head.
Ridiculous if not so sadly pathetic……
