PML vows to continue anti-cartoon protests

February 23, 2006

ISLAMABAD, Feb 22: The ruling Pakistan Muslim League (PML) vowed on Wednesday to continue effective protests against the publication of blasphemous caricatures.

Speaking at a “Tahaffuz-i-Namoos-i-Risalat Conference” held at the PML house, league leaders claimed that the government had taken basic steps for launching an affective strategy to raise this issue on every forum.

The government, it said, had proposed to send a parliamentary delegation to visit Brussels within the current week to register its protest and negotiate on ways to resolve the crisis.

However, the party strongly rejected politics of violence, rioting and disruption and appealed to all the political and religious parties to abide by the law and order during demonstrations.
