The rally was organised by the 'Sipah-i-Sahaba' fundamentalist Islamic group. A few days earlier such meetings had been officially banned by the government of Pakistan. Tensions were high in the wake of the September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States. Pakistan's President Musharraf angered many of his countrymen by joining America's alliance against terrorism.
