Sufis march against Taliban

Thousands protest in Lahore against what they describe as “Talibanisation” of Pakistan.

Thousands of members of the Sufi community have staged a march in the Pakistani city of Lahore, calling on the government to do more to stop “terrorists” and Taliban influence in the country.

It came after leaders of the Muslim sect grouped under a council that aims to subdue what they call the growing “Talibanisation” of Pakistan.

Pakistani Sufis have stepped up their movement against fighters in the country after a series of attacks on their shrines.
