Is President Zardari going to flee Pakistan? Reports say his family has already left for Dubai

Sphere: Related Content

A major political crisis seems to be brewing in Pakistan. With firebrand Islamic cleric Muhammad Tahir-ul Qadri and the Supreme Court waging a sort of coup against the civil government, rumours were abuzz that President Asif Ali Zardari was on his way out of the country.


While on one hand Qadri on Tuesday refused to call off his revolutionary protests over corruption issue aimed at overthrowing the government, on the other the Supreme Court ordered the arrest of Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf in the rental power case.

Both Zardari and Ashraf have been going through a crucial phase, especially the latter with the Supreme Court deadline to arrest him within 24 hours inching closer.

A section of Pakistani media reported that amid increased fears of uprising by Qadri's sit-in outside parliament, Zardari's family had left for Dubai from a Pakistan airport early on Wednesday. There were even reports of Zardari also fleeing Pakistan, however, there was no confirmation of he or his family leaving the country. Some other reports said that the President's special aircraft was put on standby.

Meanwhile, Qadri has vowed to continue his high decibel campaign against the government. The protests which started in Islamabad on Tuesday continued for the second day. During his fiery speech on Tuesday, Qadri had asked the government to resign and urged his followers to stay on the streets of the capital until their demands were met.

2012 was the ninth warmest of any year since 1880, continuing a long-term trend of rising global temperatures, NASA researchers say.

With the exception of 1988, the nine warmest years in the 132-year record all have occurred since 2000, with 2010 and 2005 ranking as the hottest years on record.



NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York, which monitors global surface temperatures on an ongoing basis, released an updated analysis Tuesday that compares temperatures around the globe in 2012 to the average global temperature from the mid-20th century.

The comparison shows how Earth continues to experience warmer temperatures than several decades ago.

The average temperature in 2012 was about 58.3 degrees Fahrenheit (14.6 Celsius), which is 1.0 F (0.6 C) warmer than the mid-20th century baseline. The average global temperature has risen about 1.4 degrees F (0.8 C) since 1880, according to the new analysis.

Meanwhile, the YDA, Punjab’s Mayo Hospital chapter also observed that the young doctors were not given bails on bailable offenses, and on the other hand, their FIR was not even registered while their victimization in the form of suspensions and transfers was also going on so there would be complete OPD strike from Wednesday onwards.

Ali Zafar was tight-lipped on Tuesday after being told he won't be performing at a musical festival in the Indian city of Pune.

Pakistani artist and rising Bollywood star Ali Zafar was tight-lipped on Tuesday after being told he won't be performing at a musical festival in the Indian city of Pune – this cancellation is the latest cultural casualty of tensions between Pakistan and India along the Line of Control (LoC).Right-wing Indian party Shiv Sena forced organisers to cancel the event which was due to take place on Saturday. The move was followed by the scrapping of a series of events featuring Pakistanis.

Another casualty was Pakistani classical singer Javed Bashir, who had performed in Delhi on Sunday along with the Mekaal Hasan band. After his Monday performance was cancelled, Bashir was quoted by The Times of India as saying, "It's sad to note that shows are being cancelled due to security issues."The news from Mumbai is just as bad. The Mumbai Magicians hockey team, which has four Pakistani players, was asked to send them back in the interest of their own safety.
