ASWJ workers protest outside Lal Masjid against Dr Fiaz murder

ISLAMABAD:Workers of Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ) on Friday staged a protest in Islamabad against the murder of Dr Fiaz in Karachi.

Dr Fiaz was targeted a couple of days earlier; workers of ASWJ therefore staged a protest outside Lal Masjid in Islamabad Friday, after Jumma prayer and chanted slogans.

Protestors marched towards Parliament House but the police hampered them from entering Red Zone by blocking the road with containers. Protesters said that they were being treated unjustly.

The march was led by ASWJ Islamabad President Ghulam Mustafa Baloch in light of which police cordoned off the street near the headquarters of the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) with containers.

They further demanded that targeted killing of their workers must be stopped and that the detained workers must be freed immediately. The protesters, however, was dispersed after a negotiated agreement with the police. DNA
