The massive demonstration, led by the prominent Pakistani Shia cleric Allamah Syed Jawad Naqvi, saw participation of people from all walks of life, cutting across the sectarian and ideological divide, Press TV reported.
The rally was held on Shahrah-e-Quaid-e-Azam, formerly known as the Mall Road, one of the busiest streets in Lahore, and was attended by thousands of people.
The participants chanted vociferous slogans to condemn the Israeli regime’s continued, unbridled aggression in the occupied territories of Palestine, and for threatening the Islamic Republic of Iran.
In his remarks at the rally, Naqvi said “threat to Iran is a threat to all Muslim countries”, reaffirming the support of the people of Pakistan to the government and people of Iran.
Many leaders, from both the Shia and Sunni communities, addressed the rally and voiced their support for the Islamic Republic against what they called the “genocidal” regime in Tel Aviv.
They also decried the Arab states for betraying the Palestinian cause by announcing the normalization of diplomatic ties with the Israeli regime, calling on them to terminate the deals immediately.
The demonstration coincided with the Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) summit in Islamabad, which was attended by top diplomats and representatives of many Muslim countries.
