KHUZDAR: Hundreds of people took part in a march organised here on Friday in protest against publication of blasphemous caricature by a magazine in France.

The march was organised by the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl.

Carrying placards and banners inscribed with slogans against the French government, the protesters started their march after Friday prayers. They marched on different roads of the city, chanting slogans against the magazine and the French government.

The protesters condemned the French government and the country’s president for supporting the magazine.

They called upon the Pakistan government to expel the French ambassador from the country and call back the Pakistani envoy in France.
