Thousands of people marched Thursday against French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo as anger remains high in the country over the publication of cartoons disrespecting Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).

The march through the streets of Karachi is the biggest in a series of demonstrations against the magazine. Protests demonstrations were also held in Peshawar and Quetta. An intelligence official overseeing the rally said that the protesters numbered in the “thousands”.

Protesters carried green flags printed with the Prophet Muhammad's (PBUH) mausoleum and chanted anti-Charlie Hebdo slogans as they marched. “Down with Charlie Hebdo, down with the blasphemers,” they shouted.
