Capri and Nishat cinemas on M.A. Jinnah Road, Bambino on Garden Road and Lalazar Cinema in Qaidabad Karachi were partially damaged while Prince cinema was set afire by violent mobs. In Peshawar, angry crowds armed with clubs and bamboo poles converged on the Firdaus picture house, smashing it up and setting furniture ablaze.
