More than 30,000 people took to the streets of Karachi on Saturday to protest the American anti-Islam film “Innocence of Muslims” as well as a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad published in a French magazine, according to Press TV.

Pakistan’s largest city was filled with protesters from various political parties and movements, from pro-government to Islamist. Crowds, waving Islamic flags and banner, are set to march toward the Tibet commercial center in the west of the city.

Such marches had been banned by the government for security reasons, according to TV channel Geo TV.

Similar protests erupted in Pakistan earlier this week, in which 19 people died.

Cartoons of Muhammad appeared in the French magazine Charlie Hedbo last Wednesday, despite warnings from various sources.

Shortly before that, protests broke out across the Muslim world against the American film, which portrays Muhammad and Muslims in a negative light.
