Pakistan Emergency Update

Pakistan Emergency Update

This arrived in my mailbox this morning. [with some minor edits to facilitate formatting]:

Faisal has left a new comment on your post "The Pakistan Emergency: Update!":

Here are some personal experiences of mine related to the historic Long March in Islamabad.

I hope you people will be interested in knowing this.


Congratulations Pakistan for showing display of solidarity and commitment with the cause of justice and freedom - and we specially congratulate the lawyers, students, civil society and political workers who joined hands with each other under the leadership of Aitzaz Ahsan for the great cause.

I think PPP (especially Mr. 10% Zardari), Mush and company, Dogar and company and PML with ANP should realize that they don’t have time to waste and that they must act now in favor of the country and restore the judiciary (without any unconstitutional package) and get rid of that dictator Musharraf.

InshaAllah the success is near and Pakistan will experience the true justice and freedom.

Some personal experiences: I am very tired (I have arrived today at Karachi) so not in a position to write much, but would like to share some personal experiences (In a random and brain storming way).
  • It was great to see people coming all from Pakistan (Sind,Balauchistan, Sarhad, Punjab, Kashmir, Tribal areas) for a common cause belonging to different backgrounds.
  • Especially would like to thank Fastring guys(students, alumini, and faculty of FAST-NU) for showing great hospitality, especially Hasan (for picking me up and helping me with many things) and Usman of YPL (for sharing his room).
  • It was great to be with faculty members of FAST-Lahore and openly discussing views with them especially Dr. Durrani, Pr. Liaquat Majeed Shaikh, and their former entrepreneurship faculty member Zia sahab.
  • Also to CCP and SAC guys for their cooperation and support throughout the journey.
  • It was great to see that people were so disciplined and united.
  • Still feeling in my ears “Go Musharraf Go”, "Adlia ki Azadi tak Jang rahai gi , jang rahaigi”,” Ai Khuda mera CJ salamat rahai” and …
  • Cannot forget the warm welcome throughout the journey.
  • Thanks to the family of Islamabad who invited us at their home and their hospitality.

After thought: We are ready for further struggle and inshaAllah the success will be of the “Right”!
