A violent protest in Pakistan has claimed six lives on Wednesday morning.
The report said the unrest broke out on Wednesday morning in Eastern Pakistan leaving four police officers and two Islamists dead. The radical Islamic demonstrators rallied on a highway in the town of Sadhuke as they marched toward the capital Islamabad.
They demanded the expulsion of France’s envoy to Pakistan over the publication of caricatures of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad in France.
The violence erupted a day after the government of Prime Minister Imran Khan said it would not accept the Islamists’ demand to close the French Embassy and expel the French envoy.
Khan’s decision infuriated supporters of the Tehreek-e-Labiak Pakistan party who over the weekend suspended their march to Islamabad to give the government three days to consider their demands.
Usman Buzdar, chief minister in Punjab province, said in a tweet that the violent clashes left four police dead and 253 injured. He warned of stern action against those responsible for the violence.
Pakistan Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed blamed demonstrators for initiating gunfire and said the government was deploying paramilitary rangers to Punjab for two months. He asked demonstrators to end the protest and return to Lahore to avoid any government action.
