LAHORE: The long march against the resumption of Nato supplies through Pakistan as announced by Difa-i-Pakistan Council (DPC) started from  Lahore on Sunday and is expected to reach Islamabad tomorrow, Express News has reported.

Hundreds of cars were part of the procession.

The participants included activists from Jamatud Dawa (JuD), Ahle Sunnat Waljamat (formerly known as Sipah-e-Sahaba), Jamiat Ulema Islam (JUI), and Jamat-e-Islami (JI).

JI’s caravan had already reached Nasir Bagh under the leadership of Amirul Azeem where JuD ‘s caravan, led by Hafiz Mohammad Saeed, joined it.

JuD’s caravan had proceeded from Masjid-e-Shuada where JI leader Sayed Munawar Hasan, DPC chairman Molana Samiul Haq, former ISI chief General (r) Hamid Gul, his son Abdullah Gul, Pakistan Ulema Council head Maulana Tahir Ashrafi and other leaders joined them. The leaders were mounted on a truck, which also doubled as a moveable stage.

A number of JD and Hizbul Mujahideen activists were providing security to the truck.

The leaders delivered speeches at Istanbul Chowk at The Mall in front of Town Hall.

Addressing the protesters, Maulana Samiul Haq said they were holding a long march to save Pakistan and Afghanistan from the clutches of the US, adding that their movement would continue until complete withdrawal of US forces from Pakistan and Afghanistan.

He said suspension of Nato Supply is one of their goals, urging the masses to join them towards Islamabad.

Addressing the gathering, JI’s Syed Munawar Hasan said the long march was a sigh of relief for the people from the anti-people policies of the government, reiterating Haq’s stance of continuing the struggle till complete ouster of US forces from Afghanistan and Pakistan.

He said the government was trying to make Pakistan a colony of the US and hence the DPC was holding the march to rid the country of this slavery, asking those, who are against drone attacks and terrorism to join the long march.

Saeed also urged the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to join the DPC long march, adding that those who were not joining the DPC were part of the government and would be equally responsible for the government’s decisions, including allowing resumption of Nato supply.

The protest was welcomed by a large number of JuD supporters at Shahdara Chowk, and Muridkey. The participants are scheduled to spend the night in Gujrat.

On July 9 the long march would leave Gujrat at 10 am and would reach Islamabad on the same day through Lala Musa, Kharian, Sarai Alamgir, Jehlum, Dina, Sohawa, Gujar Khan. The leaders will decide the final venue for the march after consultation with participants from Rawalpindi and Islamabad, which could be either the D ground or some ground in Aabpara.

DPC activists, media clash as Gen (r) Hamid Gul faints

During the march, there were also reports of General (R) Hamid Gul fainting at Shahdara, where he was rushed back in an ambulance, provided by Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation, an offshoot of JD. Activists of JD clashed with some photographers and cameramen of different media outlets for filming the episode, terming it as embarrassing for them.

‘Government will not stop DPC long march’

Senior Advisor to Prime Minister on Interior Affairs Rehman Malik has said that the government will not stop the DPC long march, letting them to record their protest against Nato supplies resumption in front of Parliament on Monday.

“We will not stop DPC long march. By letting the DPC to hold rallies, we want to prove the government’s stance that that country’s ‘deep state’ is not involved in DPC’s genesis,” Malik said on Sunday.

However, while briefing the media over the long march, he said that the Government would not allow leaders of banned outfits to participate in this procession.

“Individuals of banned organizations and others placed on Schedule – IV of the anti-terrorism act will not be allowed to enter into Islamabad.”

Security arrangements

Chairman National Database Registration Authority (NADRA) will install CCTV long range cameras on various commercial areas of federal capital, while Secretary Interior Sadiq-e-Akbar will monitor the proceedings of the long march and speeches by their leaders.

Islamabad police, including Frontier Constabulary and Rangers will be deployed along the route of the long march to protect the participants as well as public and private properties.

Akbar said that the DPC had ensured that the procession would remain peaceful.

Four helicopters were assigned to conduct aerial monitoring from both sides of Jinnah Avenue, Islamabad while two helicopters would also be provided to Rawalpindi police for aerial surveillance.

Eariler, speaking at the DPC All Parties Conference, Maulana Samiul Haq said that the re-opening of Nato supplies was an insult to the parliament. On behalf of the participants of the APC, he demanded that the government resign.

He said that the long march was not just against re-opening Nato supplies but also against corruption, the increase in prices and power outages. He said that drivers, conductors, helpers and mechanics of Nato containers should refuse to work on them since advancing the Nato supply was an “un-Islamic act.”

As per a media briefing by Maulana Samiul Haq, the long march is expected to reach Gujrat on Sunday  from where it will proceed towards D Ground in Islamabad in front of the Parilament House where the procession will be held.

According to Haq, this was the first phase of their protests and the second phase would hold marches from from Quetta to Chaman, Karachi to Hyderabad, Multan to Dera Ghazi Khan, Sargodha to Mianwali, Peshawar to Khyber Pass, Rawalpindi to Chakwal Talagang, Faisalabad to Sargodha, Khushab and Islamabad.

Ask any man on the streets of Pakistan – punjabi, sindhi, baloch, pathan, seraiki and even non resident Pakistanis and they will tell you that they are absolutely agains’t opening up of these supply routes. What sort of democracy is this where the people’s wishes are not considered and the civil-military leadership dictate policies according to what suits them (cash in the pockets). Liberals here should use a bit of common sense and try not to malign the cause (i.e. closure of NATO supply routes) by linking it to DPC.

    Apparently pushing the same goods in the same direction during the 1980s and from 2001 to 2011 was an ‘Islamic Act’.

    @Wtf

    I think we are stuck in the 90s. Majority Pakistanis love Afghan Taliban and consider them the sole representatives of whole of Afghanistan. The fact is that 54 percent Afghans are non-pushtoon and they fought Taliban during 90s, and they hate them. Many urban pushtoon don’t like Taliban. Taliban have support mainly in rural pushtoon areas of Afghanistan.

    Why are we forcing entire Afghanistan to accept Taliban? Why don’t we respect their opinion? How many Afghans protest against NATO, especially non-pushtoon Afghans and urban pushtoons? What about global opinion? Even China, Iran, Turkey are opposed to Taliban.

    We can’t expel Afghan Taliban from safe havens in FATA and Baluchistan, so there is severe pressure on us. And I think army is no position to attack these elements. So it has to open NATO supplies to lessen pressure. Further, the collapsing economy cant face isolation; economy takes years to revive and stand on its own feet.

    As far as DPC is concerned, they are proxies of those who form foreign policy; their credibility is nil. They were used by the state to wage proxy wars, and later abandoned. For them, a jihadi group is a business. They recruited children from poor families and had them killed in Kashmir and Afghanistan. Many of them are involved in sectarian terrorism.

    And your connection between liberalism and feudalism was really amusing. Go to southern Punjab, there is an alliance between jihadi groups and feudals.

    We keep hyping that a few extra vocal people have Pakistan hostage, but do consider the following
    1. More people have died in the hands of TTP in any given year (average for 10 years) in Pakistan since 2002, that all afghan civilians put together since 2002 in the hands of NATO.
    2. Each year, more Pakistani’s die in target killings in Karachi, than all military deaths in Afghanistan and Kashmir combined (only using Kashmir as an Example.. Indian trolls don’t respond)
    3. Each year more Shia’s are killed in Pakistan than combat deaths in Afghanistan
    4. For each afghan civilian killed, we have 10 Pakistani innocent civilians killed by TTP and their allies.
    5. Afghan Taliban are surpassingly silent on Pakistan allowing NATO supplies to continue. Why?
    6. Americans have supplies coming through Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan has American bases too. Yet no uprising seems to be taking place there. Intact Uzbek warlords seem to have found a place in our tribal areas.
    7. American have active war bases in : Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Iraq and others in the Arab world, where real aircraft kill real civilians in our part of the world. Yet none of these countries or their civilians object.

    This seems to be being a case of us being more loyal than the king.

That’s what I said, mullah exploit the poverty of people to attain power. Why did mullahs oppose land reforms if they wanted to help poor? During cold wars, religious parties gave fatwas against labour unions and workers. Isn’t jihadi groups mere exploitation? Why should tens of thousands of Pakistanis die in Afghanistan and Kashmir to achieve defense policy aims after giving spending 50 percent ton defense budget?

    Feudals finance mullahs, and mullahs prevent uneducated youth and peasants from challenging the power of feduals. Religious indoctrination induces fatalism in the poor; mullahs convince them that poverty is their fate ordained by God.

    You are 100 percent right , Pakistan needs to stay out of this conflict by stopping this arrangement if supply

    Agree with that? Otherwise, Pakistan will break along ethnic lines

    Please don’t be an advocate for Afghans and stop spreading inaccurate information about the number of people killed in Afghanistan. The Taliban, our so called Muslim brothers, which was created tortured and killed more people in the 90s and continue to do so. Thank God US/NATO are in Afghanistan to check these alien sponsored men. Recommend

    Pakistan has had losses with over 40000 civilians killed, thousands of security forces dead, and radicalization all around.

    It is not Pakistans national interest or business to have supply

    My numbers are 100 percent solid , cited by Afghanistanafterdemocracy.com

    Sources are from REAL Afghans unlike you
