Protests were held all across Pakistan against the blasphemous video recently released on YouTube.
Please do not ignite public properties, just target US Embassy… Best of LuckRecommend
though this film should be condemned, i wonder what the usa officials have to do with it ? did they make this movie ?
why their are no procession against the mulla who burned koran in rimsha masih case, why no procession against him ? There are many cases where masjid and worshippers were attacked and killed in pakistan, why no procession against them ?
salaam. i dont know why im doing this, but after watching all these pictures, the only words left to say is just that whatever they doing isn’t right, this is not what islam teaches us. islam is the religion of peace, and humanity the’re killing there own brothers destroying things. im a student of class 10. have such comen sense that the best way we can get through this is just that spread islam its teaching in a better and lovable way. im a muslim and proud to be a muslim.i would rather suggest this to all those muslim countries out in the world, that please stop harming people of your own country. THINK!! in a better way. true muslim is one who just avoid such things. as the matter of fact this video was just to create problems among muslims only. pray to Allah, follow the foot steps of our Prophet Muhammad, and believe in Quran. THIS IS THE BEST WAY!!
Shameful. It is your responsibility as a ‘good muslim’ to protect envoys, diplomats, and their buildings.
These protests are killing our innocent Muslims. Today, on the way back home, many of my relatives faced much difficulty from their offices or educational institutes. Beating policemen, breaking cars mirrors or other ways of showing that yes America! we really are terrorists!
Think for a second that if all this is in the name of Prophet S.A.W.W. who was a perfect example of peace and tranquility, we should stop igniting our beloved country and its people. Do peace protest not harmful protests that destroys our country.
Have watched it.absurd 4th grade movie.We should ignore it.Recommend
imagine a person you love and aspire to be like. who is good, kind, innocent and just. who only ever wanted the best for all of humanity. he is a person you have never even seen but you know better than any living people around you. and then someone or some people say awful things about him. they doubt his character, show him in a bad light. what do they get out of it? hurting millions of people around the world. i will never be able to figure it out.
the truth is, someone calls my parents names i would want to do them bodily harm, to put it mildly. and then this is the Prophet. Allah’s last messenger. Our Prophet. what are you people saying? doesnt he even deserve that we step out of our comfort zones, our houses and protest (peacefully) against such actions? because you see he bore all sorts of hardships for us. we owe it to him.
people should not hurt one another. no one has that right. not muslims, not jews, not christians, not anyone. we are not forcing anyone to fall into our way of thinking so why don’t they just leave us alone?
Even if we donot raise our voice against it,remain peaceful and dont raise any such protests,you have my word we will still be labelled as “terrorists”…because this image is what “they” want to portray, and since they have media and power, its not difficult for them to raise propaganda against islam so that all non-muslims who never study or research islam, fall in their trap of this false propaganda…I think its natural to protest against such satanic digust..but its true it “should” be done in a peaceful manner….
but sometimes i think a true muslim, who literally “loves” prophet(SAW) more than his wife,children and parents, what should his behavior be against such an act??when someone amongst our beloved dies, we cry a lot and we know it “should not be done” as it is prohibited in islamic rules…but still everyone understands that the crying is something impulsive, and natural…so are these protests…
those american government/authorities sitting on top dont get labelled as terrorists for wat they do in muslim countries but wen we raise our voice against tyrrany, we get “labelled”, cursed and our whole islam gets cursed cz this is wat they take pleasure in…you see,its their world
