Rally outside Aitzaz's house

Around 200 people gathered outside Aitzaz Ahsan's house today at around 7 PM in a continuation of the vigils that have been taking place there since the announcement of his withdrawal of his candidature from the elections. Lawyers, students and other concerned citizens shouted slogans calling for his release and other illegally detained heroes, like Ali Ahmed Kurd, Tariq Mahmood and Muneer A Malik, as well as the reinstatement of the judiciary. As their numbers swelled, the protestors marched in the form of a rally towards the main road next to Zaman Park, where they formed a human chain on the sidewalk, while contiuing the charged sloganeering. At the time this report was being penned down, the protest was still underway.
