The political agitations led by Imran Khan and Tahir-ul-Qadri in Pakistan for the past few weeks had been billed as inquilab for a "Naya Pakistan". Even though they did not, and could not have lived up to their promise of revolutionary change, these two movements have unsettled the status quo of the elites and have politicised new sections of the population. This in itself may well have opened up some spaces which were unavailable earlier.
