Aitizaz Ahsan begging for peace and calm as violence breaks in Pakistan

This photograph of lawyer leader Aitzaz Ahsan on top of an ambulance putting his hand together and begging for peace and a stop to the needless violence by some who are ‘supposedly’ his supporters, speaks volumes. It speaks volumes about Aitizaz Ahsan; volumes about the culture of anger and violence that has gripped Pakistan, and volumes about the the state of Pakistan politics. A sense of anger and angst continues to define Pakistan.

Read also, Aitizaz Ahsan’s letter to his fellow lawyers, back in December.



Whether the violence is the result of nefarious ‘agency’ designs to discredit the lawyers movement or the disgruntlement of frustrations within the movement, it does not bode well for the country and for democracy in the country. It may serve the short-term interests of some, but it cannot be in the long-term interests of Pakistan.

The pictures (above) of mayhem and violence on the streets of Pakistan are are equally articulate about the state of affairs in Pakistan.

    It is admitting of a failure to reason. And if you cannot reason, it is a failure itself.

    As I said, here, here, here and here (google it), failure to reason leads to violence.

    And the failure to reason happens when those in power, the “gitter-mitter” of Pakistan, do not allow avenues of free expression.

    Free expression of ballot box, free expression of jury box, free expression of soap box.

    It would be better that Pakistanis show up in these “policy meetings” and let these “policy planner” know, their policies should make sense for the people. Their policies should improve the lot of people. Their polices should be in service of the people.

    The people of Pakistan,
