Like the rest of the world, people in Pakistan poured on to the streets in their tens of thousands in solidarity with their Palestinian brothers and sisters against the atrocities Israel.
Over thirty years ago, the late founder of the Islamic Republic Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini declared the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan as Quds Day. Since then Muslims across the globe keep flocking into the streets on this day and this Karachi rally is one of them. The protesters were chanting anti-Israel and anti-US slogans. Participants also condemn the UN for its passive role and double standards. Demonstrators also set American and Israeli flags on fire. With people chanting slogans Al-Quds belongs to us, the message from southern port city of Karachi is clear: They vowed to stay with people of Palestine.
