Mass riots in Islamabad. No fewer 700 radical Islamists arrested

36
Information Agency TASS citing Pakistani media, reports on the results of a large-scale protest of radicals held in Islamabad. It is worth noting that about 25 thousand people took part in the rally organized by representatives of the Islamic radical movement Sunni Tehrik in the Pakistani capital. The reason for such a large-scale action was the death penalty, which was committed against a former Pakistani policeman who killed the governor of the province of Punjab.


The Punjab governor called for the abolition of the so-called blasphemy law. Based on this law, a Pakistani citizen must be held criminally responsible for any attempts to disagree with the basic laws of Islam. If a citizen of Pakistan expresses criticism of the main shrines of the Muslim religion, then he is facing the death penalty. The murder of the governor by his own security officer occurred in 2011. 29 February 2016, the killer was executed (hanged).

The radicals who broke into the government quarter of Islamabad demanded "the immediate introduction of Sharia throughout the country" and "punishment according to the Sharia of all those who were involved in the death penalty of a policeman (guard representative) of the governor of the province of Punjab."

Mass riots in Islamabad. No fewer 700 radical Islamists arrested


The rally in Islamabad resulted in clashes between radical Islamists and law enforcement officers. To disperse the action, unauthorized by the authorities, several thousand policemen and fighters of the Pakistani army were involved. At least 700 people were arrested.

Even after the intervention of the army units, the action of the radicals did not stop. Several thousand people gathered in the center of the capital of the country again. At the moment, they have decided to move to the so-called sit-in in the government quarter of Islamabad.



The country's prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, stated that it is impossible to fulfill the demands of the radicals, and therefore in the near future they should go home, otherwise “serious force” would be used.

          It is necessary to destroy the United States. (the arrogant policy of world domination.)
          USA must be destroyed!
          Otherwise, there will be no peace on the planet.

          It may very well be that the Americans really do not like the expansion of China's influence on Afghanistan and Pakistan

        We have a secular state, these calls will not work. But hooliganism and swearing and public insulting a person, no matter what religious or non-religious affiliation, should be punished by law ...

    Not very correct and effective, but a protective reaction of Muslims to attempts to promote the decomposition of the country's population.

      In fact, it is not clear that the murdered governor was just proposing this decomposition:

      The Punjabi governor called for the repeal of the so-called blasphemy law. Based on this law, a Pakistani citizen should be prosecuted for any attempt to disagree with the basic laws of Islam. If a Pakistani citizen expresses criticism of the main shrines of the Muslim religion, he will face the death penalty

      And the radicals:

      The radicals breaking into the government quarter of Islamabad demanded “Immediate introduction of Shariah throughout the country” и “Sharia punishment for all those involved in the death penalty of a policeman (security representative) of the governor of Punjab. "

      A muddy topic turns out. IMHO

    ... radical protests ... took part about 25 thousand people

    So many gathered in one place potential enemies not only Christians, but just civilized people. And this is only in the capital of Pakistan. This event suggests that more than a dozen years will have to be fought against world terrorism.

    It seems that Central Asia is a beehive with less and less space. The extent of the spread of extremism is surprising. And it's probably more dangerous than it sounds.

    If the person is a "devout religious" - go to another world and live there, just do not take others with you. This is what I write about ALL religious psychics, regardless of faith. There are rules developed over the millennia by the blood of millions. Life on the Planet should be secular, and not stupid in some canons, which some half-educated people push into others. The simplest example is that slender, pretty European women were exterminated by the Holy Inquisition as witches, well, now papa1 loves papa2, but what do they have to do with other people's kids, whom they adopt? And all because the psychos with the TRUTH in their eyes steered.

    The striped ones are setting fire to more and more regions. What a "bell" for Iran and India, and China as well. At this rate, soon penguins in Antarctica will be divided into moderate and not so.

    That's all they worry about the unpredictable DPRK regime, they say they launch rockets, and Pakistan, as the possessor of nuclear weapons, is, in my opinion, a bigger problem than the DPRK.

    Yeah ! And just a few days ago there was a monstrous explosion during which dozens of Pakistan Christians were killed during Easter festivals.

    Of course, one can see Washington’s ears everywhere, but it seems to me that in Pakistan, local and non-Amer people have strong complaints against each other.

    And if you also remember about Pakistan's strongest ties with the UAE and the Saudis, and about the massive "cultural exchange" with the rich countries of the Gulf (and at the same time hotbeds of radical Islam), then a very beautiful oil painting.
