LAHORE: The protest in Lahore organised by the Pakistan Christian Democratic Alliance, which CFD joined, involved people from all walks of life and religions. It was also a great show of religious harmony and tolerance. Nearly a thousand participants marched from Press Club at Simla Pahari to Charing Cross at Mall Road, which remained blocked for over an hour. Both the Christian community and progressive activists were forceful and very strong. Protestors were totally fearless shouting slogans against the Taliban, mullahism and blasphemy laws. They also linked Taseer’s murder with the murder of Bhatti.

    We fully endorse the letter written to the President and the rest on murder of Shahbaz Bhatti and bigotry all around.
