Thousands of Pakistanis shouting slogans like "we want change" thronged the streets of Islamabad in support of Sufi cleric Muhammad Tahir-Ul-Qadri's anti-government demonstrations on Monday. Flag-waving citizens braved tear gas shells fired by the police and called for a crackdown on corruption, backing Qadri's call for an indefinite delay in elections.
