Pak Islamists protest against steps to improve trade ties with India

Islamabad, Fri, 25 Nov 2011 ANI

Islamabad, Nov 25 (ANI): Hundreds of Islamist activists in the Pakistani-administered Kashmir demonstrated against the government's decision to take steps to improve trade with India on Friday.


Last month, Pakistan's cabinet had said it approved a proposal giving India the status of the "Most Favoured Nation" in a move towards normalising trade relations between the two nuclear-armed neighbours.


Members of banned Islamist groups including Jamaat-ud-Dawa, Jaish-e-Mohammad and Lashkar-e-Taiba, and hardline religious party Jamaat-e-Islami gathered in the main square in Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistan-administered Kashmir, The Dawn reports.


Protesters shouted slogans against the Pakistani government and were joined by supporters of the main opposition party of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.


"We will never accept this decision," Maulana Abdul Aziz Alvi, local chief of Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) told the gathering.


JuD is blacklisted as a terror group by the United Nations and considered a front for the Lashkar-e-Taiba, which America and India blamed for the killings of 166 people on November 26, 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai. (ANI)
