Thousands march in Pakistan in protest against Charlie Hebdo; policeman guarding polio workers shot dead in Karachi

Supporters of Jamaat-e-Islami chant slogans during a rally

Tens of thousands of Muslims took to the streets in Pakistan in anger at the Prophet Mohammed cartoons published by French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.

The largest rally was held in Karachi, where 25,000 people shouted slogans including ‘death to France’, ‘death to the blasphemers’ and ‘(We are) ready to sacrifice life for Prophet Mohammed’.

Anger remains potent over the repeated depiction of the Muslim prophet in the satirical magazine, whose Paris offices were attacked on January 7 by Islamist gunmen, killing 12 people…

Policeman guarding polio workers shot dead in Karachi KARACHI: Gunmen on Monday killed a policeman guarding a polio vaccination team in Karachi, police officials said, the latest blow to efforts to stamp out the crippling virus in Pakistan.

The attackers on a motorbike shot the policeman in the western neighbourhood of Papoosh Nagar and then fled, senior police official Chaudhry Asad told AFP.

      Which brings up the small item of how can security clearances from such a corrupt cesspool of fanatics and bribe takers be even relied on to a minimal extent when terrorist driven national security issues are supposed to be of the highest priority in protecting Canada?

    The problem for the polio workers will remain unsolved until the ‘authorities’ begin corrective actions against the mullahs/imams who order and condone the attacks.


    • Canadian

      The problem will be solved when they`re all dead from the disease.

  • Petrilla

    Look at them. TAke a good look at them and their madness. This is what our government wants here? I look at them and I cringe. Who are they but mad with their isl#mic ideology? Does even one of them have Grade f±±±k one? And they will with their hideous hatred be siting next to a Canadian kid in Grade one. And by the 7th grade they will be praying sharia , girls after boys but the mentruating girls way behind them.. In Toronto. Disgusting. I challenge the mealy mouthed PC Toronto people to say that these facts are wrong. Wake up Canadians, this is your and your kids future.
