Imran Khan behind student movement in Pak Universities claims an article in WP

0 comments

Article in Washington post claims that Imran Khan is the new driving force behind anti Musharraf student protests in universities. Imran Khan is often influenced by the religious factions of the country and sounds more like a born again type. On the other hand secular organizations are joining Ms. Bhutto to organize protests.

But in computer labs and cafeterias on this campus and others across the country over the weekend, students were busy making placards reading "Democracy Now" and "Students Against Martial Law" as they prepared to demonstrate against emergency rule. Some said they would join former prime minister Benazir Bhutto's so-called long march, scheduled to begin Tuesday in Lahore and progress to Islamabad, the capital, 250 miles to the west, in defiance of President Pervez Musharraf's ban on protests.

One of the driving forces behind some of the student protests has been Imran Khan, a shaggy-haired cricket star turned opposition leader and an icon of cool among young people.
