ISLAMABAD  - Mushtaq, 38, who joined the Inqilab March from Lahore with his six-member family, was happy as well as sad on the announcement of Tahirul Qadri to leave the sit-in. He had locked his home and joined the march.
Schools have been reopened after summer break but his children are unable to attend schools. After the shifting of Inqilab March venue from Khayaban-e-Suhrawardy Road to Red Zone, two of Mushtaq's kids fell ill with fever and diarrhea.  "We have been subjected to enormous gas shelling but we are determined not to leave our leader until he allows us to vacate this place," Mushtaq said. A sigh of relief was apparent on his face, as he had decided to go back.
