LAHORE – The students and teachers of Government College University (GCU) have passed a resolution, demanding the Muslim counties to pressurise the United Nations for adopting a legislation that prohibits blasphemy and proposes death sentences for a blasphemer.

The resolution was unanimously passed by the GCU students and teachers while taking out a mass protest rally on the university campus against the anti-Islam movie. GCU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Khaleeq-ur-Rahman led the protest in which Old Ravians and heads of all academic departments also participated.

About 2,000 slogan-shouting protesters carrying placards and banners took the rally from the GCU Mosque to the main gate and then special prayers were held in the GCU Oval Ground for solidarity of Muslims and supremacy of Islam.

Addressing the students, the vice chancellor condemned the film and demanded strong legal action against the filmmaker. He urged the students to raise their voice against the film at all forums including social media and international competitions in which they often participate.

He, however, requested the students to remain peaceful during their protests and refrain from damaging any public or private property. He said there was dire need for an international legislation against blasphemy, so that no one in the future dared to do such devilish act.
