The council, which met recently in Lahore, strongly condemned the recent threats issued by US President Donald Trump through a televised address to the nation from the White House in Washington.
Council members and their supporters raised slogans against the United States while taking part in a "caravan". They also carried banners that were captioned "Threat of War to Pakistan by US President" and "Friendship with India and Enmity with Pakistan" to emphasize their anger with Washington.
Taking a strident tone and indicating that the United States would expand its presence in Afghanistan, President Trump warned last month that America's enemies would never know Washington's plans in dealing with them. He said that he would not reveal when America would attack, but added that it would if deemed necessary.
Trump called on Pakistan to stop providing a safe-haven for terrorists
The caravan was managed by cadres of the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), who wore black T-shirts with the inscription "Jamaat-ud-Dawa Pakistan Security".
Among those who participated in the event were Hafiz Abdul Rehman Makki and Saifullah Khalid of the Milli Muslim League (MML) Hafiz Ibtesam Ilahi Zaheer (Jamiat Ahle-Hadith), Hafiz Khalif Waleed (TJAK) and Abu Al Hashim (Amir, JuD, Lahore). (ANI)
