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.

  1. All the people in Pakistan condem voilence either state organised ,any party organised or just to show frustration.
    We should always think of humanity,because no religion anywhere in world justifies brutalities.
    All the best wishes of all the poeple in Pakistan particularly

  2. PAK DOST says:

    There is too much violence all around us. We need more voices for peace.

    auk comments represents “us and them” mindset and this facism no different then facism shown on May 12.

    We should never consider our opponent or enemy “less then humans”. Slogans like “rats” shows a facist mindset.

    I think PPP also knows that in long term they need MQM as in next election Mr NS will get landslide victory in Punjab by playing “punjabi card”. Thats the reason Zardari is trying to get MQM onboard.

    On other hand they dont want to get balck mail by MQM and thats why Zardari has appointed Shoib Suddle as police chief.

    The two most destabilizing forces in Pakistan today are MQM (the rats), and their patron in chief, Mush. From the signals coming out from the land of the pure, it seems that PPP and PML(N) know this, and are on track to clip their wings. If this coalition can bring back security to Karachi and rid its streets of the rats, that would be one big achievement, and is a prerequisite to bringing back Pakistan towards the path of food and energy security. Developments of the past 2 days point to this. Shoaib Suddle is in, and the rats are going back in their holes. There is news that MQM Haqiqi’s leaders will be released, and Rahman Malik has said this in unequivocal terms that “the Security on the streets of Karachi will be maintained at all costs”. Next on the agenda is clipping the wings of Mush, either by passing legislation making his post mostly ceremonial, or by an outright impeachment. Mush is kicking and screaming and is no mood to let go as shown by his attempts to create rifts in the ranks of the ruling coalition. It needs to be seen if this coalition can sustain these onslaughts, and is able to get rid of him before he makes a fatal move. All fingers crossed.

  5. A lot of politics is going on these days and lot more will come in future. I think people of Pakistan have played their part and now we all should sit back, get along with our daily routine and let the new political government do their job, as we have been doing in the last 60 years!!
