ISLAMABAD – The anti-government protestors belonging to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and the Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) on Wednesday started digging graves to demonstrate their determination to lay down their lives till the fulfillment of their demands.
The unexpected activity was witnessed around D-Chowk where several protestors were seen digging up graves. Protestors dug the graves on the greenbelt of the D-Chowk and also displayed burial shrouds.
The move came few hours before Dr Tahirul Qadri’s deadline to the government and he made it clear that whatever will happen after the deadline would not be his responsibility.
On Monday, Tahirul Qadri leading a mass anti-government rally in front of parliament issued a 48-hour deadline for Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to step down, saying he was prepared to die to see it happen.
Tahirul Qadri showed protesters a white burial shroud in a speech issuing the deadline for the prime minister, who had refused to step down.
