My beloved Pakistani followers residing in Pakistan, please, for the love of Allah, stay safe and cautious. I’m getting emotional thinking about, if God forbid, anything happens to any of you. Please don’t go out for pictures or videos, if the professional news reporters are getting beaten and threatened, we are nothing to them. Gone with a bullet. I pray Allah protects you and your families.
To sum it all up, this all started when the two political parties ‘Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf’ (PTI) headed by Imran Khan and ‘Pakistan Awani Tahreek’ (PAT) headed by Tahir-ul-Qadir called for a protest (known as the Azaadi and Inqilab march) to demand a resignation of the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his party due to the allegations of rigging in the May 2013 election and the Model Town Lahore incident which resulted in serveral protestors being killed by the police gunfire. The protest started from Lahore and thousands of people travelled all the way to Islamabad on the 14th August (Independence Day of the country). Both the parties kept a peaceful protest and urged that there would be no voilence by the Police. [Soruce: Wiki and from what was shown on ARY News] According to the interview with channel, Muhammad Afzal Khan, former additional secretary of the Election Commission alleged that the 2013 general elections were rigged and the “peoples’ mandate was stolen”. He said that the prime minister Sharif “did not win the elections in a free and fair manner” and chief election commissioner Fakhruddin G Ebrahim “had shut his eyes on issues of rigging”. He also said that “judges were involved in fixing the vote” and they deliberately delayed the hearing of voter fraud cases. Amongst the judges who facilitated rigging, he specifically named former chief justices’ Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and Tassaduq Hussain Jillani. Nawaz Sharif refused to step down in any way. Yesterday, both the parties initiated the protest to move forward to the Parliament building (in a peaceful manner) which has been under the protection of security forces. However, as soon as civilians reached the spot, the forces started a tear gas and fired rubber bullets at the protestors which has resulted in 300+ injured and around 9-11 dead (there are no accurate figures yet from PIMs, the hospital where injured are being taken. People believe forces are not letting them give an accurate number). The forces are continuing the tear gas and fires from time to time.
This might also provide more info about the current situation.
If this doesn’t tell you that innocent men and women are being used as pawns by ISI-backed Khan and Qadri against an equally reprehensible civilian leadership that of Nawaz’s, I don’t know what will. In rudimentary terms, the most dispossessed and cheated on person in this ugly mess is the average Pakistani civilian who simply wants a better and safer tomorrow.
And this burden was
removed from my shoulders

I cannot see You, Al-Batin
because You are
The Hidden One,
but I can feel You.
Pakistani/Muslim Wedding of Maliha & Adil
Oh my goodness. The bride is sooo beautiful. All her outfits from her mehnedi to her walima, she looked looked stunning! My favorite outfit was the red one worn at the actual nikkah. Pakistani weddings seem to be just as fun as Indian weddings. Then again, the two countries are right next to each other. Liked this wedding a lot! Filmed by Samson Productions
