First Look: Of Pakistani protests and Ash billboards
No, they don't hate Ash at all.
Pictured in front of an Aishwarya Rai billboard in Karachi are Pakistani activists of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) taking part in a protest rally.
But this isn't a rally of single men incensed by the upcoming wedding. The MQM's grouse is with the self-declared Shariah (Islamic Law) of the Lal Masjid in Islamabad.
Chief cleric Abdul Aziz and its attached male and female religious schools have challenged the government of President Pervez Musharraf and launched Taliban-style morality patrols against music and video shops.
Dhoom 2 fans, support the MQM.
