ISLAMABAD   – The deadlock between the government and supporters of religious parties continued on Sunday as hundreds of protesters have blocked major roads in the twin cities, disrupting the lives of millions of people of Islamabad and Rawalpindi.

Activists of the Tehreek-e-Labaik Yah Rasool Allah (TYL) party have been demanding the removal of the people involved over a recently omitted reference to Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) in a constitutional bill.

Although the minister apologised and clarified the omission was a clerical mistake, the demonstrators are keen that the government punish those responsible for the recent modification in the Khatam-e-Nabuwat clause, which has since been withdrawn.

The sit-in that started on Wednesday afternoon has entered its fifth day on Sunday, shutting down public transport and choking major arteries of the city.
