100,000 Pakistanis Protest US Drone Strikes

Over 100,000 supporters of Pakistan’s largest religious political party gathered in Karachi on Friday and condemned drone attacks by the United States in the country’s troubled northwest.

The public meeting organised by the Jamiat-e-Ulema Islam (JUI) party also demanded that the government continues the two-month blockade on NATO supplies crossing into Afghanistan.

“We are being forced to become extremists. When you and your religion are humiliated in Guantanamo Bay detention centre and your children are being crushed under tanks, then what the victims will ultimately do? They’ll counter your extremism with extremism.”
