The demonstrators said Allama Shahenshah Naqvi was to deliver a sermon in Islamabad but the local administration stopped him.

The demonstrators also chanted slogans against police authorities for registration of an FIR against Allama Naqvi.

A large number of police was deployed in the area to stop the protesters from entering the Red Zone.

Shahenshah Naqvi’s opponents have accused him of publicly criticizing Sahaba, a claim he denies.
