"No one in the world has the right to commit religious terrorism, no one has the right to hurt sentiments of others, no one has right to harm world peace. We demand a social boycott (of those who have committed this act of blasphemy), the boycott of their (French) products so that they realise that they have harmed peace of the world."
Thousands of Sunni Muslims gathered on Thursday in Karachi to protest against the publication of the caricatures of Prophet Muhammad in the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.
The protest was organised by the Sunni Tehreek, a moderate Sunni group, whose leader Sarwat Aijaz Qadri said nobody in the world has the right to insult other peoples' religious beliefs.
"We demand a social boycott, a boycott of their products so that they realise that they have harmed peace of the world," he said.
The publication of caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad has sparked anger and protest in Muslim nations across the globe.
The magazine has invoked freedom of speech to defend its publications of cartoons that many Muslims and non-Muslims alike consider offensive.
There have been protests around the Muslim world following the publication of a special edition of Charlie Hebdo which featured caricatures of Prophet Muhammad in the wake of an attack on the magazine's Paris office that killed several employees at the magazine.
