"im sorry to be so dumb but whats going on in pakistan? what are they protesting??"

walensi:

walensi:

What’s going on: Protests, basically. It started off as a long march called the Azadi or Freedom march by PTI led by Imran Khan an opposition party in the parliament and the Inqalaab or Revolution march by PAT led by Tahir-ul-Qadri, a non entity in the parliament but someone who can pull crowds to himself. The march went from Lahore to Islamabad, the Pakistani capital, where they gave (and are still giving) a dharna, which I think is a sit in in English. These were all peaceful protests and the sit in was peaceful until yesterday, when the protesters started going toward the prime minister house after failed negotiations (and a lot more) and well, they weren’t allowed to go far because the police went in with tear gas, rubber bullets, and also in one instance, actual bullets. This has resulted in about upwards of 200 injuries and 7 people dead, 2 are critical, obviously again these are premature numbers and there’s likely to be a lot more.

Now, WHY: Simply, the march happened because of allegations of rigging in the general election of 2013 that led to Nawaz Sharif, head of the PML-N to come to power. The Lahore Incident, which is linked here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Lahore_clash), read up. Generally, also non responsiveness to valid rigging allegations, and no sign of opening up areas where these allegations exist. A lot more.

This is a very, very basic thing. I skipped military intervention in talks, the sit in was on going for two weeks, a lot more basis for the march, the entry into the Red Zone, more events. You can google and keep up with this and ask me more questions if you’re still confused. This is also an on going situation.

If I messed up something tell me I’ll fix it. Add more to this if you want.

some good sources to keep up with pakistan:

http://tribune.com.pk/

if someone wants to add on more sources that would be great!!! I’ll add more as I find sources that seem unbiased

"I give a damn about what's happening in Pakistan! My family and I, here in the UK, are glued to the television and in utter despair about what's happening to our brothers and sisters. Any updates?"

createdfromclay:

I’ve been glued to ARY News myself with my dad for the past few hours. The thing with ARY News is that they’ll say one major thing and then quickly move on to the next. Granted, ARY is rather biased in favor of PTI, as Geo is in favor of PML-N’s regime. 

So far it seems

  • Protests have spread throughout the country, as have clashes. People have started to gather in Karachi as well now. InshAllah they all remain safe. Protests have now broken out in:
    Karachi,
    Lahore,
    Sialkot, 
    Hyderabad, and other cities.
  • MQM’s Altaf Hussain has called for Nawaz Sharif’s resignation as well. I don’t know what the implications of this could be given MQM’s stronghold presence in Sindh, especially Karachi. 
  • According to ARY News 250+ have been wounded, no update on the number of people who have died. Numbers only continue to rise. According to some the police have been taking the bodies and removing them from sight. 
  • Imran Khan is still standing on top of his bus amid tear gas shells being fired at him. They’re still marching on. towards the PM house.
  • Tahir Ul Qadri’s supporters have entered the Parliament building claiming they have been compelled to do so since the government has shot and killed innocent civilians marching. So far they are only conducting themselves peacefully in said building. 
  • Nawaz Sharif had helicopters remove and transport the gold he had stored in the PM palace.

And why am I alive, when everyone around me had turned to meat?

It’s because of my list of rules.

Meanwhile in my City; Islamabad, Pakistan, this is happening^. Read THIS , THIS,  THIS to find out  what exactly is happening and why. So we’re pretty much stranded, there’s tear gas being thrown, plastic bullets being shot, and people getting hurt. I just hope it all ends soon. It’s so sad on many levels, please pray for Pakistan.
