FAISALABAD: Jamaatud Dawa on Friday organised a protest rally against the likely resumption of goods supply for the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation troops in Afghanistan through Pakistan. Protesters at the rally held under the banner of Difa-i-Pakistan marched to the Clock Tower where they staged a sit-in and chanted slogans against the government. Addressing the demonstration, JuD leader Ameer Hamza said a signatures campaign was underway against the restoration of the supply line. He added that the JuD would call a long march to Islamabad if the government decided to let the NATO tankers resume supply through the country.  He said JuD caravans from all over the country would march to Islamabad and besiege the parliament house if the demand was not met.
