                           Road Trip! I'm in!

It is the world’s second biggest Muslim congregation after the Hajj,
held every winter.  Around three million people are expected to take
part in the final prayers conducted by Indian cleric Maulana Muhammad
Saad, organizers say. The devotees were seen walking down to the 
already full Ijtema ground. Thousands gathered in alleys and roads, 
while many got on to boats on the Turag River to join the Akheri Munajat.
More than 6,000 police personnel have been deployed in and around the
Ijtema grounds to ensure security for the devotees, said Gazipur's 
Superintendent of Police Harun ur Rashid.

Traffic on the Dhaka-Mymensingh highway, leading to Tongi, had 
remained suspended since Saturday midnight. Holiday has been 
declared in educational institutions, offices, and factories around 
the venue.  Since 2011, Bishwa Ijtema is being held in two phases, to
ease the accommodation problem.
The second phase of the Ijtema is scheduled to begin on Jan 20 at
the same venue and will end on Jan 22.

Av partisi krizi
Shouldn't they be at the Tongi festival? Like everyone else.

Fourteen Qatari princes, including Shaikh Hammid bin Halife el-
Tani, who turned over power to his son three years ago, set up
camp in the Shoran region of Pakistan's Baluchistan province in
order to hunt the 'hubara/mezgeldek' bird (little bustard).  But the
princes elicited a negative reaction from the local populace with
their trained falcons and army of bodyguards.

Hundreds of locals from Shoran and surrounding areas organized
a protest to have the Qatari princes go elsewhere.  However, 
Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif alerted the army to protect
the princes, who deem it quite prestigious to hunt the hubara bird.

The Pakistani Army warned the leaders of the local tribes that they
would use force against any protests.  But it turned out that it was
the army that blinked first - about 30 armed villagers cut off the
Qatari princes' convoy, resulting in a firefight in which four people
were injured, including two of the princes' bodyguards.
