The people of Pakistan are in near unanimous agreement that the potential Islamic leader Tahirul Qadri appears much more charming and charismatic when the army, the police and control of nuclear weapons are on his side, the latest polls indicate.
According to a recent poll, nearly all Pakistanis said they believed that Mr. Qadri’s charisma was two times as strong after being told that he is supported by the Army, with one survey respondent remarking that he would “seem kind of nicer officially surrounded by soldiers and tanks”.
“Though Tahirul Qadri did not have major support from citizens when he began organizing his protests, popular support and sympathies rose rapidly after the people found out that Mr. Qadri probably had the support of the army.
A staggering 67 percent of those surveyed said that the potential ruler seemed like an especially good choice ‘because he would not hesitate to use nuclear weapons if necessary’, political analyst Malik Yalda explained as he publicly presented the results of the poll.
The survey also indicated that if Mr. Qadri manages to take over leadership, he will have one hundred percent support among citizens if his inauguration includes a military parade, while that support would fall about twenty points if he would decide to have a more modest inauguration without demonstrating his military power.
