The arrest order for Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf was music to the ears of supporters of Tahir ul Qadri, a Muslim cleric who wants Pakistan’s leaders thrown out in favor of a caretaker government to bring about electoral reform and flush out corruption.

The demonstrators welcomed the court decision, chanting, “Long live the Supreme Court.”
