KARACHI: Arrangements were in full swing for ‘Tahfuz Namoos-e-Rislat March’, being held in Karachi on January 9 against “conspiracies” to repeal blasphemy laws.

Leaders of Tehreek Namoos-e-Rislat met with citizens, traders, transporters and people belonging to various walks of life in different parts of city and distributed handbills and pamphlets among them, said a Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) release on Friday.

Thousands of banners have been displayed across the city while millions of handbills distributed among citizens for mustering their support to the march, dubbed as a ‘million march’.

Leaders of religio-political parties stressed upon the masses to participate in rally for making it a big success, adding that defending the honor of the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) is not only the responsibility of the political or religious parties, but every Muslim is duty bound in this regard.

They said minorities in Pakistan enjoy complete religious freedom and protection of their life, property.

The rally would be addressed by Chief JI Pakistan Syed Munawar Hasan, Amir JUI-F Maulana Fazal-u-Rehman, Chief JUP Dr. Abul Khair Mohammed Zubair, Amir Jamaat-u-Dawat Hafiz Saeed and other leaders.

imkarachi | 10 years ago | Reply That's awesome .... a very successful long march in Karachi. That shows the strength of true supporters of Islam. These are supporters that doesn't only say that they are Muslims, but also follow it ... not like some bunch of people who say they are Muslims but focus on secularism.
