Islamabad: The Anti-Isam film 'Innocence of Muslims' has taken a horrifying shape in protests across Pakistan. The protests have become so intense that one man was killed fatally while hundreds of others were brutally injured during the demonstrators’ anti-human acts in Islamabad.
The protestors also set afire two cinema halls in Pakistan’s Peshawar in fresh protests on Friday, the Islamabad Police have said.
The furious marchers didn't leave the shops too, as they put them afire as well to show immense rage against the US made film that is allegedly said to be having anti-Islamic content.
Not just this, the protestors also damaged the Chamber of Commerce building while in a firing incident on GT Road, an employee of a private TV channel was killed and seven others were injured.
A cinema guard opened fire, injuring one person, when a crowd armed with clubs and bamboo poles converged on the Firdaus picture house, smashing it up and setting furniture ablaze, police officer Gohar Ali said.
Witnesses said the crowd stormed Shama cinema, smashing windows and setting it afire.
Authorities used shipping containers to block roads leading to the US consulate, the offices of Western aid organisations and other key buildings in the city.
The authorities have also shut down the mobile phone network in 15 cities across the country in an effort to contain the violence.
Violence also took place in Rawalpindi as demonstrators took to the roads leading to capital Islamabad and pelted cars and police with stones and burned down a booth at a toll plaza, said Mohammad Munir, a police official.
Anna Gurji, the female lead of the film who was allegedly misguided about content of the film has filed report against the film's director for forgery.
