Pindi & Peshawar events

Earlier in the morning, Benazir Bhutto was prevented from leading a rally of PPP supporters at Liaqat Bagh in Rawalpindi when security forces surrounded her Islamabad residence and put her under house-arrest.

Authorities have said that such an action was necessary due to security concerns and for that matter, Section 144 banning all public gatherings, protests or processions has been imposed in Rawalpindi/Islamabad. Around 6,000 policemen are guarding the planned vanue in Pindi while BB’s Zardari House is now barb-wired and surrounded by at least 200 personnel.

Meanwhile, Peshawar suffered from the first bomb blast since Emergency Rule, near a serving minister’s house. What it shows is that you cannot bring law and order situation under control by targeting the intelligentsia and representatives of the civil society while showing a soft hand to the ‘real’ terrorists preaching their own agenda on their private FM radio stations.
