With hundreds of thousands of people signing up for the event titled ‘Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us’, a local version of the plan, ‘Storm Adiala to Save Nawaz’, has been created on Facebook.

Over 600,000 people have signed up to the Area 51 event that invites attendees to gather before entering the air force base obsessing alien conspiracy theorists for long.

The Pakistani version of the event, on the other hand, calls on the participants to raid the Rawalpindi Central Jail aka Adiala Jail to save former prime minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif.


It is highly unlikely that the event is not a joke since the ex-PM, convicted in corruption references, is not even locked up there. He was transferred to Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat Jail after a court, last year, accepted his application to be incarcerated in Punjab’s provincial capital instead of Rawalpindi.

The satirical event, however, has received over 943 signatures, including that of social media influencer and comedian Junaid Akram. Over 1,500 have also marked themselves as interested in attending the event.

It is scheduled for July 21 (Sunday) at 6 pm, whereas the person behind the event is not yet known.
