IJT letter: LUMS Olympiad 2008 final round

IJT letter
Karachi, March 08, 2008: The Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) Pakistan has issued an open letter urging people to boycott Danish products and the government to severe diplomatic, political and economic ties with Denmark.

According to the central information secretary of IJT Pakistan, the IJT had issued around 1 million poster-letters as part of its campaign "Tahafuz-e-Namoos-e-Resalat" in the wake of republication of blasphemous caricatures by Danish newspapers. The IJT distributed the letters among students and people in schools, colleges, universities and markets on Friday.

The letter, written by IJT Pakistan Nazim-e-Ala, laments over the lack of unity among Muslim countries and urges people to unite against the sacrilegious act and express their resentment and protest by boycotting Danish products. It calls on the government to sever diplomatic, economic and political ties with Denmark as protest.

The Jamiat has also organised massive protest demonstrations in colleges and universities across the country. The News
