The Siege of Lal Masjid: A ‘Bloody Hell!’

Upon asking my friend about what was going on inside G-6 Sector and whether he was inside G-6 or not and where his family was, he had this to say,

No I am not, got the whole family out of there, yaar. It is absolutely terrible in there. The firing is only one issue. There is no electricity which means there is no water and they have cut off gas supply last night. I thought most of the people would have left by now but when I went there this morning, the neighborhood was full of people complaining about the delay in ending this mayhem.

In a war that has plagued this small section of Islamabad so badly, the only shelter these people have is their homes. Now those too have been ravaged with the maddening curfew, with all utilities like water, electricity and gas cutoff, and the inability to have a shut eye since guns and bombs go off at any random time breaking the silence… Life has come to a standstill. People in that area want to see this all played out quick and fast. They have lives, jobs, businesses and most importantly, homes to run! I hope the government takes notice of this, and realizes that now THEY are being played about by the mad man namely Abdul Rasheed, and his goons.

There isn’t any better way of describing the situation as a ‘Blood Hell!’ Have a read at another post describing this human suffering in the area. For those of you who have relatives in that area, I suggest to move them out of there and take them to another sector.

    media is reporting that many foreigneer and diplomats are also living in the area and that have taken up the issue with senior govt officials and govt is thinking of further limiting area in which curfew is being imposed
