Pakistanis, join the global community in protests and demonstrations against the ruthless Israeli state and for the battered Palestinian populace.

As we enter the first post-Ramazan week of the Palestinian struggle, the world has erupted in protests calling for a unified approach and help for the abused, though not defeated, residents of Gaza. Protests are being and have been held across the world and are also scheduled to take place across Pakistan.

United we stand, divided we fall.

These fancy facebook protests won't do any thing. A collective bold and practical response is required from the Muslim States.

Why Pakistan's political leaders are so coy to lend their support for the Palestinian people!

Palestine needs something much more forceful than mere protests.

@Submitting to One, will protests change the ground realities? What happened after protests to our French Ambassador? Why protests after Friday prayers other than instigate people to destroy properties. Also watch out for the spread of Covid too

Those protests will be followed by spike in corona virus infections two weeks from today.

@ilyas After a thousand apologies, I humbly disagree. Think positive, say positive, act positive.

Pakistanis it is your right to protest and take out rallies but please, please do not destroy your own property.
Ibrahim May 18, 2021 06:16am
These demonstrations on the road mean nothing . Our own leaders make fool out if us . Please add Black September in the list as well .
