As #longmarch, #KSE, PM Ashraf and #tuQ began trending on twitter, local twitterati began to put the pieces together.

While Tahirul Qadri called for a revolution in Islamabad, in an interesting turn of events,  the Supreme Court of Pakistan ordered Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf’s arrest in the rental power case.

A mere coincidence?

The local twitterati begged to differ as they began buzzing about a well-thought out conspiracy.

Is the Supreme Court of #Pakistan mounting a judicial coup in league with Tahirul Qadri?

Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri

Congrats to Pak nation! Half speech delivered & half goal achieved. Tomorrow, I'll deliver second half & you'll achieve remaining goals.

Coincidence much? Tahirul Qadri had been asking for SC to have say in formation of caretaker govt - also called PM 'former PM' earlier today

Asma Jahangir: Only a naïve person will think that there's no connection between order for PM's arrest and #TuQ's protest.

Chief Justice ki timing pe maa sadkay! #TuQ

As Qadri huffs and CJP puffs, the Karachi Stock Exchange crashes ...

I wish Christopher Nolan would've directed this movement. Qadri to PM: Do you feel in charge? #tuQ #longMArch

Qadri did tell us last night that the PM was 'ex' now. Guess he knew something we didn't. Probably had a vision about what CJ would announce
