Posters Inviting Military in Pakistan

These are the posters which invites military commander of Pakistan to take over the democratic government in Pakistan. Posters requesting Pakistan’s powerful army chief for a coup appeared in major cities of Pakistan. These were also pasted on the poles and walls of the capital Islamabad. It raised eyebrows in a country that has been ruled by the military for more than half of its history. The posters were placed there by "Move on Pakistan", an unknown political party founded in 2013. "Talk of leaving has become old, for God's sake come now," read the posters. Ali Hashmi, the central chief organizer of the party, told Dawn that the goal of their campaign was to suggest to the army chief that after imposing martial law a government of technocrats should be made in Pakistan and Gen Raheel should himself supervise it.
