    The threat is from status quo parties hiring thugs to disrupt any march.

    Pray there are no attacks and casualties. The nation is still in a state of shock and mourning after the Quetta and Swat bombings.

    Qadri wants dead bodies to exploit situation and bring down democracy. He is working for non-demoratic forces and must be stopped at all cost.
