The American embassy in Pakistan's capital, Islamabad, has become the latest target of protesters angry over American insult of the great Prophet (pbuh).
The total number of protesters reached around 5,000 later on Thursday with the arrival of protesters carrying the flags of Islamic groups. At least 50 people were injured as puppet police fired tear gas and live rounds towards the peaceful Muslims.
Hundreds of students from various colleges and educational institutions in Islamabad has begun clashing with puppet police as puppet security forces tried to block them from reaching the embassy compoud, which also includes the British and French diplomatic missions. The students responded by pelting the puppet police with stones, and the thugs retaliated by firing tear gas shells. Several students were injured when policemen hurled the stones back at the crowd. Several puppet policemen were also injured.
Many thousands were trying to march but were prevented by the puppet security forces. Military helicopters have been hovering over the area where the protests are taking place.
Protests took place in other parts of Pakistan as well. In Lahore, the cultural capital of the country, students from an Islamic school marched through the streets and chanted anti-American slogans. In Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistani-administered Kashmir, more than 200 protesters set fire to an effigy of Obama.
"We will make known it by burning the effigy of Obama and his allies that a blasphemer deserves to be burnt to death," said Maulana Mehmood ul Hassan Ashraf, secretary general of Jamiat-e-Ulema-e-Islam.
Large protests are expected on Friday, the weekly Islamic day of prayer, which has been declared a special public holiday in Pakistan. The puppet government is nervous and several containers have already been brought in, as roads entering Islamabad were being blocked ahead of tomorrow's protests.
