 November 27, 2017: Pakistan’s Law Minister Zahid Hamid has resigned after days of protest rocked the country amid accusations of blasphemy over a proposed change to parliamentary laws. On Monday morning, Hamid handed in his resingnation to Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.

Protesters clashed with security forces over the weekend, demanding Hamid resign because they claimed a change in the wording of the oath of office weakened rules requiring lawmakers to reference the Prophet Mohammed. 
According to the official report, around 2 people have died and more than 250 others were injured in street demonstrations. The government has apologized and denied making the changes, calling them clerical mistakes. 
According to an internal order by the Interior Ministry, over the weekend protesters blocked a key road connecting Islamabad and the neighboring city of Rawalpindi. Pakistani army troops were brought in to help establish “law and order”.
