Pakistani government given three days to clear Islamist rally
ISLAMABAD - The Associated Press
Two previous deadlines given to the rally organizers - the Tehreek-i-Labaik Ya Rasool Allah party - have expired.
The rally began two weeks ago. The Islamists demand the removal of Law Minister Zahid Hamid over a recently omitted reference to the Prophet Muhammad in a constitutional bill.
The protesters have camped out at a main intersection outside Islamabad, disrupting life in the city. The court has issued notices to administration for Thursday on non-compliance of earlier order for clearance of the intersection.
