Anti-Charlie rally in Pakistan draws 5,000

Around 5,000 people rallied against French magazine Charlie Hebdo in Pakistan’s eastern city of Lahore on Sunday, and the founder of a group banned for militant links urged protesters to boycott French products. Hafiz Saeed, who founded Lashkar-e-Taiba, an organisation banned for launching attacks in neighbouring India, told protesters: “We will launch a movement against the insulting caricatures of our beloved prophet.” Saeed urged traders to stop importing French products and for Pakistani leaders to try to get an international law against blasphemy passed.
