Observe Youm-e-Ishq-e-Rasool (S.A.W) in Stone-age : Rehman Malik

Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik has asked the nation to observe Youm-e-Ishq-e-Rasool (S.A.W), to protest against the Profane Film, in Stone-age. And directed Interior Ministry to disconnect Cellular Phone Service of some sensitive regions to maintain Law and Order situation in the country, as millions will hit the streets to condemn an Anti-Islam Film.

Rehman Malik was of the opinion that it will also provide necessary munition for street-fights during the protests.

After receiving Interior Ministry directions the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), has blocked Cellular Coverage in Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, Quetta, Peshawar, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, Multan, Jhang, Rhimyar Khan, Attock, Murree, Chakwal, Chakri, and Kot Momin.

Previously, the Government had blocked the service during the Eid-ul-Fitr in a bid to keep any probable acts of terrorism at bay.

"Army and Rangers have been called for the security in Islamabad" said Interior Minister Rehman Malik.

"The move aims to protect Foreign Missions, particularly the US Embassy in Islamabad" a Spokesperson of Interior Ministry quoted Malik as saying.
