Raw Video: Pakistanis Protest NATO Supply Route

JI holds massive protest march and Sit in at Babe Khyber Jamrud against the restoration of the NATO supply. Drone strikes are no more tolerable, JI chief Syed Munawar Hassan warned while speaking at a massive gathering and march conducted by JI against the restoration of the NATO supply and the drone strikes in the tribal areas here on Tuesday. The participants of the protest march and sit in were chanting anti US slogans, Down with US and against the restoration of the NATO supply and the drone strikes while going on feet from Takhta Bag check post to the historic Babe Khyber at Jamrud, which is the gate way on the Pak Afghan high way.

JI chief Syed Munawar Hassan made it clear that the NATO supply was against the interests of the country, the unanimous resolution passed by the joint sitting of the parliament and the sovereignty of the state that is why the NATO supply can not be allowed to be carried through Pakistani routes. US designs are against the Pakistan and its nuclear assets, that is why he said that US interventions must be stopped inside the country. Syed Munawar Hasan also criticized Mian Nawaz Sharif and Imran Khan for their mere lip services against the NATO supply, asking them to come on to the roads practically and protest along with their workers rather than to throw dust into the eyes of the masses.

Pakistan is not safe under the leadership of Zardari and his regime, Hassan opined, saying it is imperative to throw out the corrupt rulers and hold fair elections to take out the country of the deep crises. He also urged the people to stand with JI in the next elections to choose honest, fair and dedicated leadership so that their basic problems could be solved. He also came hard on the army chief reminding him his pledges that he had made with the nation during the Swat operation that the army would finish terrorism in the country and the FATA, but he reminded the army chief Kayani that terrorism had grown more, arguing that if there is peace in Swat , the army should be held back.

JI Chief Syed Munawar Hasan also asked the army leadership to end the military operation throughout the FATA and let the tribesmen go to their homes in a dignified way. The health centers and educational institutes should be reconstructed in FATA so that the future of the tribal people could be made safe, JI chief demanded, urging the government to compensate the tribesmen for their losses during the ongoing military operations in FATA. The protest rallies would continue throughout the country against the restoration of the NATO supply and until the drone strikes are halted, JI chief Munawar concluded.

JI vice president Siraj UL Haq , ji provincial chief professor Ibrahim and others also spoke on the occasion against the NATO supply and drone strike. they said that the NATO supply was against the law of Pakistan, resolution of the parliament , and Islamic Shariat. The Jamrud bazaar had been sealed from all around to protect the march and the traffic had been blocked from both sides.
