Pakistan’s largest religious party Jamaat-e-Islami says that Pakistanis are planning to hold peaceful demonstrations against the US over an anti-Islam movie insulting the glorious religion’s Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), Press TV reports.


Jamaat-e-Islami chief Syed Munawar Hassan expressed support for peaceful protests against the blasphemous film.

He announced that Pakistanis are planning to hold peaceful rallies on Friday.

Hassan also accused the US of falsely claiming to have respect for people of different religions and cultures.

Following the release of the controversial clip, protests have erupted across the region, with demonstrators gathering at US embassies in their countries.

Yesterday, US ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, along with three other consulate staff members was killed in Benghazi after clashes involving a group of angry demonstrators near the consulate building.

A protester has also been shot dead in Yemen.

The act has drawn condemnation from the Vatican in Rome, Egypt, Iran, Libya, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sudan, and Yemen.

Similar protestes are expected to be held in countries across the world.

Sam Bacile, a real estate developer, has assumed responsibility for the film released on the 11th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, which he said was made thanks to Jewish donations totaling USD 5 million.
