The sits-in and rallies were staged in many parts of Gilgit-Baltistan, provincial headquarters of five provinces and other cities and towns.
The angry protestors surrounded Chief Minister House in Skardu. They gave ultimatum to the DCO Skardu to withdraw the arrest warrant, expulsion and ban on entry forthwith.
The demonstrators said that government had ordered that Allama Jafri should leave Gilgit Baltistan province within three days but they want him to stay there as long as he wished.
It is also relevant to mention here that an attempt was made to arrest Allama Nasir Abbas Jafri but people foiled that bid.
The Gilgit-Baltistan authorities tried to hold a meeting with Allama Jafri on Wednesday night but he refused saying that no contact in the darkness of night would be made. He advised them to meet him in broad daylight.
