Am I from Lahore? To answer this please ask the mods to verify.

On the other hand, I disagree with this MUMMY-DADDY view of the state, though you have every right to hold on to your opinion just like me.
From wherever you are, your inability to differentiate between TTP terrorists and Abbotabad protesters pretty much disqualifies you for taking part in this discussions.

Then we people lament all day long, the pathetic condition of our fatherland.

The reason is that these illiterate 170 million "LAATON KAY BHOOT" can never agree to something using the DEMOCRATIC PROCESS as specified by the constitution.

And then, when some say that this country needs an ADOLF HITLER or JOSEF STALIN, people start to cringe their faces as if they are very EDUCATED, CIVILIZED CITIZENS of a MODERN STATE.

i would rather want them to start demanding a new province instead of a change in name. once the process starts, we will have to make saraiki province as well.

on a more serious note, y cant they name it pakhtonkhwa hazara, instead of khyber pakhtonkhwa.
Yes there should be Saraiki , Hazara and Karachi Hyderabad (together) new provinces. reason why ? because of over Population , for better administration provinces have to be divide in to more.

Hazara is gate way to China and have Pakistan's biggest dam.

No sir, I am all for more provinces but not based on the ethnic majority but based on the administrative needs. At any rate, this is not going to happen in next couple of decades so there is no need to talk about this.

I don't buy this argument that the police started it. No way.

I am with the police which has shed blood for the father land along with the servicemen of the Armed Forces.

We have developed a habit of blaming the politicians or the generals but we fail to look that we Pakistanis act like complete BUFOONS willing to destroy our OWN PUBLIC PROPERTY.

We deserve Mr. Asif Ali Zardari. No sympathy for this nation.

Had the Armed Forces not been stretched thin due to the WOT, they should have been used to establish the WRIT of the state.

No operations but a FLAG MARCH through the streets would have been enough.

Anti-Pakhtunkhwa protest claims seven lives in Abbottabad
Tuesday, April 13, 2010

Protesters burn two police vans, one police station, Edhi ambulance; PML-N, ANP blame PML-Q for Hazara situation; Nawaz urges peace, asks PCCR to calm situation

By our correspondent

ABBOTTABAD: Seven people were killed and over 100 sustained injuries on Monday when police used force to break up a protest here against the renaming of NWFP as Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.

The peaceful headquarters of Hazara division turned into a battlefield when the police used batons and fired teargas shells to disperse protesters who fought back with sticks and stones in the streets. The angry mobs blocked roads with burning tyres, set two police vehicles on fire and attacked a couple of police stations. The police fired bullets to disperse protesters.

APP adds: A large contingent of police from Peshawar was called in to maintain the law and order situation The protesters also torched an Edhi ambulance, besides the building of the Cantonment Police Station. They besieged and pelted the Mirpur Police Post with stones. As a result, three policemen sustained injuries. The enraged protesters also ransacked the office of the Khaksar Movement.

The injured include college students, aged people and labourers. The protesters hung the uniforms of the fleeing policemen in the main square of the city. They had reportedly got hold of the policemen, beat them and stripped them.

Protests again broke out in Abbottabad in the evening as the people demonstrated against the killings of protestors. People gathered at the Fawara Chowk and other places to block roads and vent their anger. Protests were also held in Mansehra, Haripur, Garhi Habibullah and other places as news of the killings of seven protestors reached there. In Garhi Habibullah, the protestors blocked Kashmir Road for hours.

There were reports that both government and private educational institutions in Abbottabad and other cities and towns will remain closed today (Tuesday) due to the uncertain situation. This created problems for male and female students living in colleges and schools in Hazara, particularly in Abbottabad.

Tension had risen in Abbottabad as the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) local chapter had announced that it would hold a convention at the Fawara Chowk on Monday apparently to counter the anti-Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa campaign launched by the Action Committee for Hazara province. The latter is headed by a former district nazim of Abbottabad, Sardar Haider Zaman Khan, and includes political leaders mostly from the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q). The district administration imposed Section 144 fearing a clash between the rival groups. The protesters, however, defied the ban and came on roads to voice their aversion to the new name of the NWFP.

Earlier on Monday, a rally led by Sardar Haider Zaman was taken out. At the Fawara Chowk, the law enforcement agencies started baton-charge and shelling against the protesters which triggered violent protests.

The protesters blocked the Karakoram Highway and Murree Road, and chanted slogan against the renaming of NWFP as Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. They also demanded a separate Hazara province.

Two of the dead were identified as Zahid, son of Farooq, and Waqas, son of Sajawal. Two minors were also among the victims but their names could not be ascertained. Relatives of some of the dead took the bodies of their near and dear ones without autopsy from the hospitals.

Dr Azhar Jadoon, a leader of the protest movement and its spokesman, said seven protestors were killed and over 100 injured due to police firing. He said six of the injured were in critical condition at the hospital. He blamed the PML-N for creating circumstances that led to the crisis by making compromise with the ANP to rename the province as Khyber-Pakhtoonkhwa. He alleged that Nawaz Sharif made a deal with the ANP over the renaming to pave the way for becoming prime minister for the third time by ensuring that the required constitutional amendment got through the parliament.

Among the injured were Javed, Kabir, Sarfraz, Salim, Younas, Hamid, Bashir, Nisar, Faizan, Ejaz, Zafar Iqbal, Saeed Arshad, Waqas, Zafar, Abid, Abdul Hakim, Gustasap, Nadeem, Rizwan, Nasim, Kamil, Aqib, Shah Nawaz, Taimur Nasir, Ghulam Hussain, Farooq, Manzoor, Irshad, Ali Asghar, Abdul Shakoor, Qaiser and Mehtab. They were admitted to the Ayub Medical Complex and District Headquarters Hospital in Abbottabad.

Hospital sources said autopsy of Waqas and Zahid was carried out while the remaining bodies were taken away by their relatives. Meanwhile, members of the District Bar Association led by Tahir Faraz Abbasi took out a protest rally against the renaming of the province and what they said was state-terrorism against the innocent people. They chanted against the provincial government and police.

Action Committee for Hazara Province chairman Sardar Haider Zaman along with other members Mushtaq Ahmed Ghani, Naseer Khan and Dr Azhar announced a three-day mourning against the killing of seven persons in the protest.

Online adds: In a letter to Chief Minister Amir Haider Khan Hoti, Nawaz Sharif strongly denounced the police firing at protesters in Abbottabad. He deplored casualties in the incident and said efforts should be made to avert a mob’s rage into a full fledge clash. “The chief minister should play a proactive role to normalise the situation and cool down sentiments of the people,” Nawaz Sharif said in the letter.

He also demanded action against police officials involved in the opening of indiscriminate firing on the people, adding those behind the incident be unmasked without any delay. He said peaceful protest was the right of every citizen, which should be tackled deftly, and not through bullet. “I had made loud and clear that changing the nomenclature of the province is a sensitive and complex matter and warned against bonding it with 18th Amendment,” he said, adding he repeatedly appealed for the amicable solution to the matter by taking all the stakeholders into confidence. He said had the decision not been made recklessly, the situation today would have been different and averted.

He said responsibility also rested with the Parliamentary Committee on Constitutional Reforms to play its role in calming down the sentiments of masses. Meanwhile, expressing concerns over volatile situation in Hazara over the renaming of NWFP, the PML-N and the ANP blamed the PML-Q for instigating the situation just for its political objectives.

Talking to a private TV channel, PML-N leader Iqbal Zafar Jhagra said the PML-Q was misleading the people of Hazara and indulged in politics based on political scoring. He said the ANP government could not ignore sentiments of the people of Hazara. He urged the provincial government to tackle the situation tactfully. The PML-N leader also requested the PML-Q to take the situation seriously.

ANP leader Bushra Gohar urged the PML-Q leadership to show responsibility and maturity as the name was changed after developing consensus. She said some elements in the PML-Q were disturbing the situation.

However, PML-Q leader Marvi Memon strongly rejected allegations raised by the PML-N and the ANP. She held the ANP responsible for the situation. The PML-Q leader said the provincial government ignored the feelings of people, adding her party was not involved in worsening the situation. She said the issue was mishandled as police used the force against protestors.

President takes note of Hazara riots
Tuesday, April 13, 2010

By Asim Yasin

ISLAMABAD: Taking note of ongoing riots in Hazara Division on renaming the NWFP as ‘Khyber-Pukhtoonkhaw’, President Asif Ali Zardari on Monday directed the top leadership of the PPP and the federal government to resolve the issue politically and hold dialogue with the people to remove their concerns.

The decision was taken during the meeting of the Core Committee of the PPP held on Monday night at the Presidency under the chairmanship of President Asif Ali Zardari. According to sources, the president was surprised at the situation in Hazara division and told the meeting that the name of Khyber was proposed by the PML-N and there is no reason for the controversy on this issue.

The meeting decided to send the federal and provincial ministers in Hazara division to remove the concerns of the people. The president while taking note of loadshedding in the country directed Minister for Water and Power Raja Pervez Ashraf to address the issue of power shortage on war footing.

The minister briefed the committee on the measures being taken to address the power shortage. It was noted that if shops were closed in the evening, additional 2,500 MW of electricity would be available that would help reduce the loadshedding.

The committee members also felt that certain political elements were involved in riots against renaming of the NWFP and power shortage. The participants of the meeting included Defence Minister Chaudhry Ahmad Mukhtar, Minister for Food & Agriculture Nazar Mohammad Gondal, Interior Minister Rehman A Malik, Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira, Minister for Labour & Manpower Syed Khurshid Ahmed Shah, Minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources Syed Naveed Qamar amd others.

PS: No Zardari-hate comments are needed. He didn't trigger the protests.

One more died today in the firing. And now the protesters have taken up arms too.

Still no sign of anyone from the government, nobody is even bothering too take this problem seriously. Not a single person from any of the ruling parties has come to this area to address this dangerous problem.

Pathetic.
