Pakistan is returning to normalcy after protests this weekend stormed through Lahore, Islamabad and Karachi against the misguided and insulting YouTube video, Innocence of Muslims. This video caused a wave of protest in many countries across the Middle East, Africa, and South East Asia. Although the protests in Pakistan were mostly peaceful, they still left their mark in the cities which hosted them. This video has caused incredible backlash and pain, but as often happens in times of turmoil, what brings out the worst in people can also bring out the best, and citizens in Pakistan are certainly bringing their best to reclaim their country with ‘project cleanup for peace.’
