Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) and the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Sunday afternoon took to the streets of Karachi to protest against drone strikes carried out by US and to block the NATO supplies, Radio Pakistan reported.

JI chief Syed Munawwar Hasan said the drone strikes are against the sovereignty of Pakistan and asserted that the government should reconsider its foreign policy.
