Moulana Fazal ur Rehman makes a big announcement over Aasia bibi release
KARACHI – An alliance of religio-political parties in Pakistan has announced on Monday to protest against the decision of Supreme Court to acquit Asia Bibi.
The Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA) said it plans to hold a ‘million march’ in Karachi on Thursday against the Supreme Court’s recent acquittal of Christian woman.
Last Wednesday, the apex court, in a landmark judgement, had accepted Asia Bibi’s appeal against her sentence, following which several religiopolitical parties had taken to the streets to protest, which at some places had escalated into riots.
A day later, JUI-Fazl Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, whose party is one of several that constitutes the multi-party MMA alliance, had announced that a ‘million march’ would be held in the port city, where he said “the future strategy” on the issue would be chalked out.
