ISLAMABAD - More than 2,000 students from Islamic seminaries rallied in Islamabad Wednesday, urging the government to take stern action against all those people who are posting blasphemous content on social media.
The rally came hours after the Islamabad High Court, responding to a petition from an Islamic cleric, ordered the government to impose a travel ban on people who post blasphemous content.
Blasphemy is a sensitive subject in Pakistan and anyone found guilty of insulting Islam or its Prophet can be sentenced to death.- AP
