After an agreement between the government and TLP to end their protests, an alliance of religio-political parties in Pakistan has announced on Monday that now, they would protest against the decision of Supreme Court (SC) to acquit Asia Bibi.

The Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA) has announced to hold a ‘million march’ in Karachi on Thursday against the Supreme Court’s verdict that acquitted a Christian woman.

Earlier, the apex court, in a landmark judgment, had accepted Asia Bibi’s appeal against her sentence, following which several religio-political parties had taken to the streets to protest, which at some places had escalated into riots.

A day later, JUI-Fazl Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, whose party is one of several that constitutes the multi-party MMA alliance, had to chalk out a strategy for the future on the issue. He also announced to hold a ‘million march’ in the port city.

Rehman’s party recapitulated their plans, urging party workers to gather at Shahrah-e-Quaideen on November 8. Thursday’s march will be Rehman’s second major political event after he headed a rally in Peshawar last Friday.
