Pakistan Protest: 25,000 Take to Streets against Dutch Film

Geert Wilders’ anti-Islamic film “Fitna” was designed to provoke. And it seems to be working. A protest in Karachi on Sunday drew thousands, railing against Netherlands, Denmark and the US. There have been several sporadic protests in Pakistan against Dutch politician Geert Wilders’ anti-Koran film “Fitna” in recent weeks. But on Sunday, the demonstrations took on a new quality when more than 25,000 Pakistanis took to the streets of Karachi. Dutch, Danish and American flags went up in flames and the protesters demanded the expulsion of the Dutch ambassador.
