The Lahore street speaks

The clerics tried to gather the attention of the Data Darbar visitors over the issue.....Some passers-by were found asking, “Why are they protesting? Who is Rushdie?” “What do these clerics want?”

A "handful of clerics belonging to various religious parties" had gathered at the Data Darbar complex to represent 1.5 billion people and to canvas support for the murder of Rushdie. Daily Times, 23 June 2007
