Thousands rally in Pakistan against Trump’s Jerusalem move

Thousands of Islamists have rallied in two major cities in Pakistan to condemn US President Donald Trump for declaring Jerusalem Israel’s capital.

Supporters of the Jamaat-e-Islami party in Karachi and advocates of US-wanted Islamist Hafiz Saeed in Lahore dispersed peacefully after the rally.

Protests have persisted in Pakistan since Trump’s announcement that sparked protests in the Muslim world.

The chief of Jamaat-e-Islami, Sirajul Haq, called on all Muslim nations to suspend diplomatic ties with the US until it reconsiders its Jerusalem decision.

Hafiz Saeed says that Muslims the world over should put aside any differences and unite around the cause of “liberating” Jerusalem.

Muslim-majority Pakistan has reiterated its support for the Palestinians, who claim East Jerusalem as the capital of their hoped-for state.
