Last evening after Tahir-ul-Qadri and Imran Khan had announced going forward peacefully, Police started shelling on them and started firing the rubber bullets. Without even considering the existence of women, children and elders in the protestors, police used tear gas shells on them. During the shelling and bullets firing by police, first causality was a woman and then at least seven people were killed. More than 200 people were injured long ago and count going up as we speak.
Even on some occasions its reported that police fired real bullets which played the role in killing seven people. The plan of people was to peacefully move to the Prime Minister House, even just on a highway which goes to Prime Minister House and then just sit there with current demands. But govt used police once again and shelled on people, which include women and children specially. As soon as shelling started many children were separated from parents due chaos.
Reportedly, the shells being used are expired ones and are full of chemical gases. From six hours continues shelling is being done on protestors who were peaceful when the shelling had started.
On other hand PIMS and Poly Clinic hospital are full of injured and some injured are being discharged without proper treatment. There people need blood but police are not allowing normal citizens to access Poly Clinic and PIMS for that.
Govt have once again mishandled the situation and have acted like they are not protestors, they are army of an enemy country. This is the worst example of behavior towards Pakistani people in the history. Now all political parties, even those which had a soft corner for the ruling party PMLN, are criticizing Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PMLN) for firing and tear gas shelling on common men. Even the injured people in hospitals are now being arrested.

After Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri had announced that Inqilab March participants will not sit idle at D-Chowk now and had extended the deadline to today, lots happened today. PTI’s Azadi March was also at a deadlock situation with government. Fearing the violence at end of Inqilab March deadline today, Govt of Pakistan today finally registered the FIR against 21 Govt officials and Govt leaders regarding the June 2014 killings out side of Qadri’s residence in Lahore. However, as it was demanded by Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) of Dr. Qadri that FIR must be registered under Anti-Terrorism act, government have denied doing that and have excluded the anti-terror aspect from the FIR.
According to a news channel, if govt would have registered the FIR under anti Terrorism act, courts were bound to act on the case within 15 days but now matter can be delayed. As name of Chief Minister (CM) Punjab Shehbaz Sharif is included in FIR Dr. Qadri wants his resignation, plus have denied accepting the FIR without the Anti Terrorism Act. He thinks govt can very well use the delaying tactics and later on can free up the people on whom FIR have been registered.
On other hand Imran Khan is also furious, as government have not done well to accept any of his demands. His demands include the Resignation of Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif and Resignation of CM Punjab Shehbaz Sharif. He states that resign may be only of one month, just to allow the free and fair investigation of rigged Pakistan General Elections 2013. Which Imran Khan thinks is not possible with Nawaz and Shehbaz still having their Government offices.
Today both, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and PAT were on verge of violent conflict with state police and security agencies, as government is not hearing them very well. However, the prime minister (PM) of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif have played a new card and brought in the Chief of Army Staff (CAOS) General. Rahil Shareef, for negotiating with both Imran Khan of PTI and Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri of PAT.
Dr. Qadri after taking suggestions from his people of PAT given 24 more hours to government and gone to met army chief. On other hand Imran Khan also gone to met army chief. As per his speech now, Qadri showed copy of FIR to Gen. Raheel and told it was not registered as per application from his party. According to him Gen. Raheel told he will do first thing in morning is to get this FIR canceled and will make sure Registration of this FIR. Plus Qadri demands resignation of Prime Minister and Chief Minister Punjab.

Inqilab March is on its extreme today as Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri have declared that all talks and negotiations with government have failed and on 3 O Clock I will make final decision along with my people to bring the revolution in country by force. He further insisted that its the final day, we will not sit here any more and also Dr. Qadri declared today as revolution day.
On other side many political parties are fearing that everything is going towards violence. Dr. Qadri’s tone also suggest that something violent going to happen soon. Today the government’s negotiation team visited Dr. Qadri two times. On first visit Qadri had given them his demands which were as follows.
The Chief minister Punjab must resign immediately as he is among the people who are held responsible for killings in model town at Qadri residence earlier this year.
An FIR (First Information Report) must be registered immediately against 21 government officials being held responsible for model town killings by Dr. Qadri.
Than the negotiation team took two hours from Qadri and gone back to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to discuss the demands. After next visit of negotiation team, Qadri termed the talks as unsuccessful and he also announced its time to make a decision. So, on 3 O clock today Qadri will hold a meeting with his people gathered in Islamabad to support him and will announce what they have to do about current situation now, now when govt is still not in mood of accepting their demands.
Earlier today the participants of Inqilab March led by Dr. Qadri were digging up graves for their own selves and were wearing white cloth called Kafan and is a Muslim dress for dead bodies. They actually tried to express that they will die, if they have to, to bring the revolution in Pakistan.
Following is video of speech in which Tahir-ul-Qadri announced the failure of talks as well as explained the current situation plus announced the revolution day.

Its now m0re than a week after Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) have launched their Marches/Rallies against the current governing party in Pakistan on charges of rigging in 2013 elections. The rallies had started on 14th August from Lahore and Marched all the way to Islamabad.
Both involved parties including PTI of Imran Khan and PAT of Dr. Qadri are demanding resignations from Shehbaz Sharif (Chief Minister Punjab) and his brother Nawaz Sharif who happens to be current prime minister of the country. The reason is both parties want in details investigations about rigged 2013 general elections in Pakistan as well as recounting in different territories of country, however according to both parties Nawaz Sharif and Shehbaz Sharif still on there seats are threat to free and fair recounting as well as investigations.
On other hand government is also standing firm, they have categorically denied giving any resignations. They have deployed several tens of thousands of policemen and other security officials on places of Azadi and Inqilab marches sit-ins. In result of pressures from other political forces Govt still have not resorted to use of power however they are doing much to make lives of march participants miserable. Two days earlier government had withdrawn the supply of water containers to March participants and told the PAT and PTI to make their own arrangements. Also ways to Sit-in spots are also blocked by using shipping containers.
Govt seem to have done great research and tried to block every big and small path towards the March Sit-in place called D-Chowk and also referred as Red Zone in context of security. But still people are able to make their way and specially in Azadi March people reach D-Chowk daily. The place where Azadi March of PTI is happening is called Azadi Sqare by PTI workers and supporters.
People participating in both marches are now facing many problems, biggest of them all is staying under open sky, too much away from homes. They have to manage their food, lots would not have a bath from days. Govt have stopped official water supply plus everyday people hear more threats from representatives of government. Still people are on firm positioning and giving message to government that they will leave Azadi and Inqilab Sqares or D-Chowk only in case government consider their demand including the Resignations of Sharif brothers as well as re-elections etc.
