Pakistan: Qadri’s ‘long march’ takes no significant steps

Posted: February 22, 2013 in Articles

A much-supported protest by a leading Pakistani intellectual has garnered attention but no real change, writes Rahimullah Yusufzai.

Religious scholar and former member of parliament Dr Tahirul Qadri ended his five-day Lahore-Islamabad ‘long march’ and ‘sit-in’ protest in the federal capital, Islamabad, on January 17 after reaching a five-point agreement with the beleaguered Pakistan People’s Party-led government.

President Asif Ali Zardari’s coalition government wanted no more crises as it was also during the period of Qadri’s ‘long march’ that it was forced to sack its own Chief Minister in Balochistan province, Nawab Aslam Raisani, and impose Governor’s Rule following another four-day ‘sit-in’ by the Hazara Shia community protesting the deaths of more than 100 of its men in bomb explosions carried out by the Sunni extremist group Lashkar-i-Jhangvi in Quetta.
