Students from Jamia Hafsa have confessed responsibility for vandalizing a mural, painted ahead of the Aurat Azadi March in G-7, Islamabad.
In a video circulated on social media, Ms Hasaan said they would “launch a counter protest” the same day titled the “haya march” because its participants will be veiled.
Mohammad Tariq, secretary to JUI-F leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman, showed support and confidence saying that the capital administration would stop the Aurat Azadi March, which is scheduled for March 8.
“If it happens then we too will not sit idle and bring our people on the streets to show them the true colour of Islam and Pakistani culture,” he said.
AWP Punjab President Ammar Rashid said: “It is part of a very orchestrated campaign to derail Aurat March, which is ongoing for a few weeks now. All the religious groups have jumped into this.”
He said they also have the right to arrange events to commemorate the day but the issue is that they are threatening and stopping us, terming the march un-Islamic. “This is one of our basic requirements while living in the most gender-inequality society,” he added.
