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.

    So they held a rally Against America and the West on Motorbikes which were apparently developed by German and American Inventors. Also then they held a procession and show a victory sign there which was first used by Americans. Then they move on and criticize West on microphones and speakers again developed by the West and they were holding banners which were printed by printers developed in West.
    Meanwhile all organizers and their participants formally reiterated their commitment with the boycott of all American and Western goods.

    So the democratic government decided to exercise democracy and reject the calls of the 91% strong majority who opposed resumption of NATO supplies? kudos, what will the mother of all ‘democracies’ the US say now? Probably a pat on the back for selling out Pakistani’ interests? Zardari and co will pay a heavy price for this blunder, the people will not give up. It is time for us to take back our country from these traitors. The blood of Muslims in Af-Pak isn’t cheap. And will not be cheap.

    WE REJECT PARLIAMENTS DECISION! ARE YOU LISTENING?!

    @Ali wali:
    This is a DPC rally, majority of the participants are from JUD (as you can tell from the flags). Oh and yeah, the DPC isn’t a SSP org, it’s also got Allama Sajid Naqvi, so yeah not only do you sound like a biased git, but an ignorant fool too. Next time, forget thinking, just Google Recommend
