Political showdown in Islamabad, capital of Pakistan, has reached its boiling point. Police attacked the peaceful protestors of two political parties without any provocation. The course of events that followed, from last night onwards, have exposed the brutality of the government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

Death Anniversary of Nawab Akbar Bugti

Today is the 8th death anniversary of Nawab Akbar Bugti. The events related to his assassination are still shrouded in mystery. However, everyone knows that he was assassinated on the orders of Musharraf who congratulated his troops after his assassination. Later on, the dictator backtracked form his statements and alleged that Nawab Akbar Bugti had committed suicide. There is no doubt that Assassination of Akbar Bugti was the triggering point for the 5th round of conflict in Balochistan. The man responsible for the tragic assassination of former chieftain of Bugti tribe is Pervez Musharraf. As long as he is not punished for his crimes there is no way the situation in Balochistan can be pacified.

Saving democracy in Pakistan

Sit-ins of both Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) are taking place in Islamabad for last 9 days. The call for revolution by Tahir ul Qadri and the demand to dissolve Nawaz Sharif government, on pretext of election riggings, by Imran Khan has created a storm in Political landscape of Pakistan. There is no doubt that the method of bringing change in the government and system by both agitating parties is entirely wrong. Similarly, any military intervention will result in ultimate destruction of Pakistan. However, one can’t ignore all those who have jumped the bandwagon to save democracy in Pakistan.
