(SOUNDBITE) (Urdu) A LOCAL JAMAAT-E-ISLAMI LEADER, HAFIZ NAEEMUR REHMAN, SAYING: "Today, when the time came for the issue of the holy Prophet, he (Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan) started threatening the nation. This is not acceptable. He has to come to his senses. He should have himself opted for a review petition. When the Trial Court passed a judgement after hearing all witnesses, when the High Court passed a verdict, when Asia (Bibi) herself confessed everywhere, in front of a tribunal, in front of people, in the courts, then on what grounds can the Supreme Court acquit her? We can see only one ground - pressure from United Kingdom, America and the IMF (International Monetary Fund). And our rulers, as well as our courts, cannot bear this pressure." CROWD HOLDING UP BANNERS, LISTENING TO SPEECHES (SOUNDBITE) (Urdu) A LOCAL JAMAAT-E-ISLAMI LEADER, HAFIZ NAEEMUR REHMAN, SAYING: "Our future strategy is protests and struggles. We do not want anarchy in Pakistan. In this connection, I want to laud the Pakistani nation that during yesterday's protests, there was no bloodshed, no stones pelted, nothing set on fire. The fiery speech came from the Prime Minister himself." POLICE CAR PARKED ON DESERTED ROAD CYCLIST PASSING THROUGH CLOSED MARKET STREET CLOSED SHOPS LOCK ON SHOP SHUTTER (SOUNDBITE) (Urdu) LOCAL SHOPKEEPER, KHUURUM NISHAN, SAYING: "The strike is because Asia (Bibi) Masih has said derogatory things about the holy Prophet. That is why the market people have closed their shops - to show that we are with everyone else in the protests. We are against anyone who abuses the holy Prophet. We cannot tolerate anyone abusing our parents, how can we tolerate anyone abusing the holy Prophet?" TRAFFIC ON ROAD
