PESHAWAR: The Difa-e-Pakistan Council (DPC) is all prepared to hold a public gathering on Peshawar this Sunday, organisers have said as the group staged a motorcycle rally in the metropolis on Friday.
“Leaders of DPC member parties will be reaching Peshawar soon and thousands of workers from various religious and political parties from across the province will participate in the rally,” Israrullah, Jamaat-e-Islami’s (JI) provincial spokesperson and chairperson of DPC’s media committee, told a small number of supporters who had gathered at the Peshawar Press Club.
Criticising the government for deciding to reopen Nato supply routes, Israr said that the DPC meeting will finalise its course of action against the decision. “The government must avoid cooperating with the US in the killing of Afghan Muslims.”
Meanwhile, soon after Friday prayers, DPC activists participated in a motorcycle rally that culminated at University Road, after going around the city.
The rally was led by leaders of DPC member parties, including central secretary general of the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat Hussain Ahmad Dallo, provincial leader of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Samiul Haq (JUI-S) Maulana Syed Yousaf Shah and Jamaatud Dawa’s Ghazi Abu Talha.
