March 16, 2009 1 Comment
On the morning of 15th Lahore was completely ceiled and the massive numbers of security persons,house arrest of Aitzaz and Nawaz,it was apparently looking that this would be a march that wont even cross GPO.This was confirmed by the crackdown of police on a small peaceful protest at GPO.But then something happened that doesn’t normally happen in Pakistan politics.Against all odds Nawaz came out gave a heartwarming speech and the success of long march was ensured.The way Nawaz and his followers broke away from police barricades in model town and kalma Chowk it was apparent that no matter how many police government deploys it wont matter,and by the time Nawaz had reached Ichra Long march was a massive success and the Halls of power in Islamabad had started shaking.
It is first time in Pakistan that Popular people leader has stood against the government not for his Power but for the people of Pakistan.The sheer size of Mob Nawaz amassed was enough for the government to restore the judges.
It must be said that this was a lawyers movement from day one and Imran Khan and Qazi and there parties played a massive role if the 2 year long movement,but one can’t help but say that the killing blow was dealt by Nawaz Sharif.
This movement also showed that peoiple of pakistan are alive and wont be bullied no longer by the oppressive regimes and governments.Success of movements like these are turning points in nation history thus lets all hope that this movement brings a positive change in Pakistan and takes us towards a better Future.
