ISLAMABAD: A rally organised by the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) condemned the firing along the Line of Control (LoC) and called upon the Pakistani government to declare a jihad against India, a media report said Saturday.

A large number of JuD workers Friday gathered at the Karachi Press Club to denounce what they called Indian aggression that claimed lives of several innocent Pakistani citizens, Dawn online reported.

Carrying banners and placards inscribed with the demand to wage jihad against India, the participants in the rally shouted slogans and vowed to lay down their lives to defend their country.

JuD's Karachi chief, Muzammil Iqbal Hashmi said that terrorism on the Sialkot boundary was part of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's policy of aggression, as he wanted to take advantage of Pakistan's internal problems.

"India should know that every citizen of Pakistan is ready to sacrifice his life for the protection of his country," he said, adding that the whole nation was behind the armed forces in their action to counter Indian aggression.

Other leaders at the rally said that India was violating the International Border in connivance with the US.

They also asked the Pakistan government for a 'befitting response'. They said that the Pakistani nation knew how to respond to the Indian threat and the nuclear bomb was made for the defence of the country.
