Around seven to eight hundred people staged a protest against the administration, demanding compensation for losses borne by traders as a result of the Rawalpindi riots, Express News reported.
Students from the Jamia Hafsa seminary — located adjacent to Lal Masjid — and traders gathered outside Raja Bazaar in Pindi at around 11am and chanted slogans against the administration. These demonstrations began soon after Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah’s press conference in which he assured the public that the government would take swift action against the culprits behind the clashes.
Students of the seminary tried to protest on College Road but the army did not allow them to.
The army and police had arrived at the bazaar shortly after the protest started and since then all routes leading to Raja Bazaar have been closed off.
A delegation of teachers of Jamia Hafsa visiting the Jamia Taleem-ul-Quran after curfew was lifted in Rawalpindi on Monday morning. The Masjid and Madrassah was burnt during sectarian clashes erupted at a Muharram 10 procession near Fawara Chowk.
