Several Mumbai organisations plan to hold a silent candle light vigil in the memory of the slain Pakistani leader Benazir Bhutto in Mumbai on Saturday.

Pakistan-India Peoples Forum for Peace & Democracy (PIPFPD) and Peace Mumbai, an umbrella organisation of similar voluntary groups, are holding the vigil and have appealed to the residents of the metropolis to participate in large numbers.

"It (vigil) will be held at the Gateway of India in south Mumbai. Our aim is to protest against violence in Pakistan, Benazir's assassination and to express solidarity with the people of that country," said Jatin Desai, general secretary of PIPFPD.
