out protesters and what a power lies the capital for weeks. and i'm fully back watching al-jazeera live from doha also ahead another step in a pause long path to democracy where voters are having their say in the first regional elections plus we'll meet one of the thousands of palestinian families being forced to live in a no man's land and why a fight over language is stopping talks to solve a political deadlock in northern ireland. pakistan's government has asked the military to help restore order after protesters shut down roads in several cities but at least for now the army seems hesitant to get involved for the last three weeks on. rigs of supporters of
a religious political party have been camped out at an intersection linking the capital islamabad to the nearby city of brown v the protests turned violent on saturday when police tried unsuccessfully to clear them out six people were killed and one hundred fifty others wounded or protesters are demanding a minister resign for a meeting a reference to the prophet mohammed in a parliamentary bill the minister says it was a clerical error that's already been fixed but they're accusing him of blasphemy a highly contentious issue in pakistan they say the changes were intended to benefit the mahdi minority whom they regard as the heretics protestors have been rallying in cities all over pakistan including islamabad lahore karachi the shower and hyderabad let's speak to al-jazeera come on hyder who joins us from color kahar on the road between lahore and islamabad come on these protests have caused huge disruptions affecting millions of people.
i've. yet to give you an idea they're travelling distance from lord on the motorway about four do for an hour. however it has taken literally. from one intersection to another interchange and that of course is causing huge problems because what the protesters have done is they have barricaded all the. points where they were able to do much to the border and they have blocked that highway at several places and that of course means that one of the. logistical supply lines that link the north to the south is now cut off not functional there are thousands of people family truck. full of people who washed up on that highway to go indeed it is a serious crisis because what the protesters have also done in there after they were temporarily dislodged from islamabad they have turned out in even larger
numbers than reoccupied goes for lation they've also brought in the city and when i say it across pakistan caracas. or all the major cities what dave down to the point and action of course leading to huge. talk sometimes several kilometers along the right come on tell us more about who the people protesting are willing at pictures here of demonstrations in islamabad on saturday some of the protesters are wearing gas masks who are these protesters and is this just about the blasphemy law or are politics also involved here. blasphemy law is something which is very waller dilation here in pa get on and. a few decades ago pakistan had declared that the car the on the community which did not believe in the phonology of the prophet muhammad that they were basically not
muslims because they are not a prophet and did not believe in the phonology of the prophets or the protested against those people and particularly some of those ministers who say that they committed a clerical mistake but the protected saying and is protected by their way of belonging to a party which are known. of course that particular party had gained trained in a matter of months it's now become a huge force and it also gathered quite a bit of sympathy from across the country the important thing to note that you mentioned before demanding that there are a minister where now they're saying they will not move from that place until all the barriers are down and they were left got to be staying there for several more days they wore now the whole cabinet did dog the dog is on a military t.v. and also meeting the prime minister today right he had already had why it came that
he should tackle today i should prefer yeah and i do want to speak to you about the military's role in all of this in this crisis they have been requested to come out into the to restore order but they seem we locked in to do so why is that. well constitutionally the civilian government can call the military. all there to villian government and they did go when emraan khan and the canadian clerically. but their jurisdiction and responsibility was to protect the white a little nation including the diplomatic conclave in it. and what they're saying is that they did not train the. the government has. to be able to go through what the military does not warn. war of incoming are. going against these protests because then create hatred against the military.
the military telling the government clean up try to keep us out of their. responsibility constitutionally by protecting their nation including the. capital but beyond they would be reluctant because there are ramifications for the military if they were the politicians. and they warned the politicians to. come out for us in the whore in pakistan thank you very much for bringing us. in other world news a factory explosion has killed at least two people in eastern china it happened in in a part of the city that had already been cleared out for demolitions the state news agency shane watson is a blast caused some buildings to collapse and more dead sofie it about thirty people have been taken to hospital. polls have opened in the past northern mountain

heart of a political deadlock which has left northern ireland without a government for most a year and there's another big issue the irish language needs explains from belfast from the heart of the. yuan that's a cultural center in west belfast i was speakers discuss the issues of the day many want the irish language to have official status in the courts the regional parliament and on road signs like gaelic in scotland and welsh in wales very few people speak their language fluently here around eleven percent claim to have some knowledge of irish a figure that steadily growing among republicans who favor a united ireland over british rule our speakers in northern ireland have his work right along with production and the. scots gerlach speakers in scotland because annoyance in that sense has been denied us is not just recognition of our language
but it's also respect for our identity for the past decade power has been shared here the regional assembly between representatives of the pro british democratic unionist party the deep and the irish republican shin fein party shin fein pulled out in january complaining it wasn't being treated as an equal party. central to their demand is an irish language act many republicans see the language as an expression of their political identity they say it's a matter of civil rights. which is my heart and soul but it was a core of my skin and you could easily identify me as being of a different color and the d.p. were stand we can't give equal rights to sky i think clear. for us this is discrimination but there's no appetite for compromise among hardline unionists many see an irish language as a means of eroding and eventually ending british sovereignty the demands for
formation feehan our political demands which i would say are vast open in the language of civil rights. and i think if you needed to put forward is not a proposal for an irish language or to be a secondary language it is a political proposal to give irish permanence and she damn say the disputes literally edged on the streets of belfast this graffiti calls for an irish language act the republican catholic west belfast the local councils have allowed residents to have their road signs in english and irish cross over to east belfast in union is appropriate is areas exclusively english if the deadlock doesn't end by december the british government may choose to take back direct control of the region undoing years of political progress republicans say the irish language is an expression of identity for many unionists it's a weapon in a cultural war we've baka al jazeera belfast.

achievement which has so far eluded their political leaders many students like ri and say they are scared by the strong rhetoric and threats of nuclear war and find it hard to see a future the sort of the image was crossing the national border a bridge is very symbolic and the location also has meaning it was a project that made us magine a story line as the war of words is collated between the united states and north korea it's students like ri and sharkey who stand in the crossfire contemplating an uncertain future craig leeson al-jazeera. more news as always on our website al-jazeera dot com.
