Raja Jahangir Akhtar: A Hunger Strike Till "Death"


According to our sources in Pakistan, a local bussinessman and a lifetime activist has declared his intent to go on an indefinite hunger strike unless some of his demands about Islamabad and Pakistan are considered by the authorities. Mr. Raja, as is obvious from his press release, understands the futility of this gestures but hopes that his “death” will somehow mobilize the people.

I do not have a lot of details,  but provided below is a Youtube interview and images of his statements and list of demands:

    I am out of country and can guess in how worst situation Pakistan is going. But our leader, don’t care of people. In this way, if someone stands against coruption which is main thing to unstablize nation root. I really appreciate. We say we are alive nation.
    Yes We are !!!
    But we have to stand united against these bullshit leader who let pakistan to go day by day in decreasing position.
    I call Pakistan young generation………..please come and behave like brave and patriotic pakistan to get rid of these leaders and problems. Coruptions is at its peak to destroy nation. Terrorist doing also against Pakistan to make it unstabilize. This is not called JIHAD TO kill innocent peolpe. This is not motto of great religion ISLAM. Will you be blessed by GOD at day f judgement or by Holy Prophet (PBUH). You guys destroy real images of Pakistan.

    I gave much respect to Gen.Ashfaq Kinai but now he is also part of this bad team. Questions were arising against solrity of Pakistan national and defense boarder.

    Come and save pakistan………If one Old guy from indian strike for india then how we can not …….we are pakistan !!!!

    This is just about time that someone has come forward with this idea. I’ve never advocated the idea of a military intervention to out throw incumbent government, how corrupt and unsuccessful it may be. Democratic process should continue so as to have opportunity to evolve over the period. Such an agitation which could result in pass or amendment of bills in parliamant is the appropriate way to bring a revolution. You have all my best wishes.

    Yet it is a sad fact that I have not heard of this act anywhere on electronic media, nor through social media channels. I intend to start compaigning for it theough facebook and text messages, and so should you. If such an agitation is to happen, it should bring fruits. Otherwise it’d end up lowering people’s hopes further in a peaceful revolution.
