Zahid Hussain talks about a recent accident in which Imran Khan, the chairman of PTI was injured and its impact on election campaign.

"One thing should be very clear, security threats or not, we’ve come out to save our country and we have to save this country of ours. Since the creation of our country, it has been destroyed between dictatorships and democracy.
PPP and Nawaz Sharif have taken their turns in the past, neither of them delivered. Now we have to give a chance to Imran Khan, it should be very clear.

Imran Khan is our captain, he has the capability to lead our country and we hope that he will fulfill his promise.

The recent accident was not intentional at all and it was from God. It was a lifter accident which was overloaded. It was the responsibility of government to make sure there was an ambulance present at the venue.

He is a true leader and true patriot, not some layman so he should have been provided a secure lifter to avoid the accident. He does 4-5 rallies every day he must have been exhausted.

If Imran Khan is given a chance and he becomes a prime minister, you will see Pakistan standing next to USA in next 5 years."

Protests in Malaysia against alleged “fraudulent” election
Malaysian protestors defy police ban to rally against election results
By Phillippa Stewart, Kuala Lumpur
Thousands of protestors risked arrest to attend a rally to protest against what opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim, has called “the worst electoral fraud” in Malaysia’s history.

Local election watchdogs have also questioned the results of the election.

A joint report released Wednesday by the Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (IDEAS) and the Centre for Public Policy Studies (CPPS) said that the election was “only partially free and not fair.” http://ideas.org.my/?p=6799

The report said the election was carried out “on a very uneven field” citing: a pro-government media bias in mainstream media, lack of transparency in campaign spending, questions over the lack of trust in the integrity of the electoral roll, the impartiality of the Election Commission, exploitation of racial issues, and unreliable indelible ink.

The United States and European Union also acknowledged concerns over electoral “irregularities,” according to AFP.

The government has denied any wrongdoing.

Dressed in black protestors packed into Kelana Jaya stadium on the outskirts of the capital; cars left abandoned on the motorway.

Waving flags, blowing vuvuzelas and rocking out to upbeat tunes the mood was more festive than fearful. Opposition leaders roused the crowds with statements like: “we will win the war”, “today we start the fight back” and “reformasi” (reform).

Aman Shah Ahmad, 47, a construction work was helping his brother sell black t-shirts at the entrance to the stadium.

“We have problems with authoritarian rule. Everything looks democratic but there’s lots of hanky-panky going on behind the scenes. I want the election result to be reviewed. We want a re-election. Please tell the world,” he said.

Asked if he was afraid of being arrested, he said: “how are the police going to arrest all of us? There’s not enough space in the police stations to luck us all up!”

Mukhzani Alia, 18, a student, said: “we want change in the government. They’ve spent the last 55 years cheating on us, it’s time for change.”
Sharon Balon, 22, and her family were outside the stadium holding yellow flowers and anti government placards.
“We’ve had to leave the stadium,” she said. “It’s too hot in there – so many people. We are all so angry, that’s why we’re here tonight.” Malaysia’s state news agency, Bernama, reported that the Inspector-General of Police, Tan Sri Ismail Omar, had warned that rally participants would be arrested. http://www.bernama.com/bernama/v7/newsindex.php?id=948221

Evoking the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012, the police said the rally was illegal because organisers did not apply for a police permit for the event. Organisers must also inform the police 10 days before an event.

According to AFP, the opposition acknowledged the rally was “not within the letter of the law.”

However, there was no visible police presence at the rally.

Malaysian Prime Minister, Najib Razak, was returned to power Sunday, although with a reduced majority. The Barisan Nasional coalition has been in power since 1957.

FSA Brigade in Salamiya Fights for a ...
Salamiyah, Syria
By Fady
06 May 2013

While the Syrian revolution has become increasingly sectarian and the fighting has often been dominated by Islamists, one brigade of the Free Syrian Army in Salamiya fights for a united and diverse Syria, and within the brigade multiple sects fight side by side.

The “Phalange Brigade of the Free Syrian Army” claims to fight for a democratic, civic state that unites and protects all Syrians under one slogan: "The Syrian People are One." This brigade, which is the dominant revolutionary force in Salamiya, is comprised of intellectual youth who believe that education and culture are revolutionary weapons. They envision a civic state, built on concepts of constructive criticism and spreading understanding between all of the Syrian sects. Even though Al Salamiya is the Middle Eastern cultural capitol of the Ismaili sect of Islam, the brigade prides itself on being non-sectarian and is comprised of Sunnis, Alawites, Ismailis, and others.

Like many in the Syrian revolution, the Phalange Brigade
 of the Free Syrian Army claims that they began their uprising using peaceful means. However, after the oppression and injustice that their city witnessed, they say that they have been forced to carry guns and join the armed resistance to Bashar Al-Assad’s regime. The men now wait for the regime’s bombing and shelling of their homes to end so they can resume their lives normally, and work on building a democratic Syria.

بعد ان اجتاح الفكر الطائفي الثورة السورية، ظهرت الكتائب الإسلامية لتكون الطاغية على الصفة الثورية في معظم المدن السورية. في مدينة السلمية التي تقع على بعد ثلاثين كيلومتراً إلى الشرق من مدينة حماه و التي تعتبر عاصمة الطائفة الاسماعيلية في سورية و الشرق الأوسط والتي شهدت حراكاً ثورياً كثيفاً على امتداد الثورة، تشكلت كتيبة للجيش الحر تطالب بدولة مدنية ديمقراطية تحمي الجميع تحت شعار الشعب السوري واحد. هي كتيبة مؤلفة من مجموعة من الشباب المثقفين من كافة الطوائف( سنة، علويين، و اسماعيليين)، يعتبرون الفكر و الثقافة سلاح، و لكن نتيجة القمع و الظلم الذي تعرضت له مدينتهم اضطروا لحمل السلاح لإيمانهم بأن الحل الوحيد لاسقاط النظام هو القتال المسلح. هؤلاء الشباب ينتظرون سقوط النظام ليعودوا إلى حياتهم الطبيعية، و ليعملوا على بناء سورية الديمقراطية، التعددية، المدنية عن طريق الفكر البناء و نشر التوعية بين جميع السوريين بكافة طوائفهم.

Transcription:

00:04 The movements in Salamiyah started peacefully

00:09 Like all syrian cities, it rebelled against oppression.

00:13 We started peacefully, until we started helping refugees who came from stricken areas.

00:20 security pressures increased on the activists, so they carried guns

00:33 Since the beginning of the Syrian revolution, the regime accused protesters of sectarianism.

00:41 Al Salamiya replied to that accusation saying, one one one Syrian People are one. This was the case because, in Al Salamiya, people went out to the streets from all sects.

and the first sign that was raised in Salamiya was saying Sunnis+ Alawis+ Ismailis= National unity

01:03 This atmosphere of brotherhood has been transferred to this brigade in which there are soldiers from different sects. Tt's not a sectarian brigade, it's not Sunni, Alawi, or Ismaili.

01:25 we're suffering from the lack of support on all levels. On the military level, we don't have enough weapons and bullets, and also on the living level.

01:36 We're lacking support on all levels, but thank God we remain patient until we get rid of Bashar Al Assad.

01:48 Al Salamiya’ weapon, as it's knows through history, is Education and Knowledge.

01:55 But, because of the harsh oppression that it suffered from, the men had to carry guns.

02:00 They saw that this is only way to overthrow the regime.

02:12 But after the regime falls, God willing, we will drop our weapons and get back to the real weapon and the most important weapon which is the Knowledge and education in order to build a democratic Syria, a diverse Syria, a Syria for all people, a Syria for all sects, a country that competes with all other countries all over the world.

02:37 for sure, we're working in a direction where we're trying to take a step forward and cut roads to help other groups in the neighboring areas and our goal is to liberate Salamiya.

02:55 Hey guys, keep quiet.

Every Friday morning at 5 am, the drawer Ahmad Jalal starts to draw a caricature which will be shown the same day during the weekly demonstration. He finds his inspiration at the last moment, depending on the last week events. Here he is drawing Hamlet, famous character of a Shakespeare theatre play, in order to transform the mythic sentence « to be or not to be » into « to be or to be ». Syria must keep living.
