This article missed a huge discussion on why actually after so many years of civilian and military rule, people risked their lives and are coming out in great numbers. It is not the Sufi Mullah Qadri, nor the love for Army or the Imran Khan, it is decades of corruptions which leads to all the social turmoil Pakistan has experienced over the years. The corruptions by almost all leaders and parties that ruled Pakistanhas been involved in massive corruption which now has Pakistan almost touching the very bottom. Fixing corruption can directly result in fighting militancy, economy, and other social problems.

@ NYKash7 – Crowd at Islamabad belongs to Qadri’s PAT party. Crowd would have been 10 times greater if common Pakistani people joined the march / protest. Point was not to bring down the current government but to control corruption in upcoming election.. and to make sure corrupt convicted politicians can not participate in upcoming election. Electoral reforms you know…
