Pakistani protester dies in clashes with police:
Pakistani police on Sunday clashed with scattered pockets of anti-government protesters trying to advance on the prime minister’s residence after a night of violence that saw hundreds wounded and the first death in more than two weeks of peaceful demonstrations.
The violence has raised the stakes in a political standoff, in which cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan and cleric Tahir-ul-Qadri have led twin protests demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, alleging massive voting fraud in the election that brought him into office last year in the country’s first democratic transfer of power.
Backed by parliament and many political parties, Sharif has refused to step down. Government negotiators have tried to convince Qadri and Khan to end their protests. Senior hospital official Dr. Wasim Khawaja said Qadri supporter Naveed Razzaq drowned in a ditch after he was in a crowd that was bombarded with tear gas. Hundreds of people were wounded overnight as police battled protesters with tear gas, batons and rubber bullets and open firing on these peaceful protesters near the premier’s official residence and the adjacent parliament building.

The protesters started regrouping at daybreak Sunday and made repeated attempts to make their way through heavy deployment of police and barricades to reach the premier’s residence. Police strengthened their lines and responded by lobbing tear gas canisters. Scores of protesters, including women, carrying hammers and iron rods broke down a fence outside the parliament building late Saturday, enabling hundreds of people to enter the lawns and parking area, according to an Associated Press photographer at the scene.
Islamabad police chief Khalid Khattak falsely blamed that the said protesters were armed wire cutters, axes.
More than 500 people – including women, children and journalists were admitted to two government hospitals in the Pakistani capital, medics and police said. The injured had wounds from tear gas shells, batons, rubber bullets and firing bullets said, who heads the capital’s main hospital.
The protests began with a march from the eastern city of Lahore on Independence Day, Aug. 14, that eventually reached Islamabad. Khan and Qadri had called for millions of protesters to join, more than 100 of thousands were peacefully joined them in Islamabad.
The protesters’ presence was a historical peaceful demonstration. On Saturday similar marches were held in Lahore and Karachi, and on Sunday huge demonstrations were held in other towns. It is still continued and the demonstrators are united against the so called government of Nawaz Sharif. An FIR is also lounged in Lahore against the Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif and their many Ministers of Muslim League (N) against the Murders of the members of Tahir ul Qadri.
This government of Nawaz Sharif in Pakistan is now badly failed and proved criminals and terrorists last night, their brutality is still continued in Islamabad and other cities of Pakistan. Peoples are looking for an immediate Military action against them.
An immediate action is required as there is a confirmed reports that government is going to take a special action against some TV channels, senior journalists including anchors and as well as against Tahir ul Qadri and Imran Khan. Mr. Javaid Hashmi of PTI is already funded by this so called democratic government. Coming night is extremely dangerous for our countries future.
