Islamabad, Nov 5 (UNI) Pakistanis are trying to come to terms with emergency imposed by President Pervez Musharraf on the Islamic nation on Saturday.

Traffic snarls were the order of the day today at various places in Islamabad as Punjab Police and Islamabad Police personnel patrolled the capital city. However, there was hardly any presence of the Army on the streets.

The Constitution Avenue, where the Presidency, Supreme Court, Election Commission, Prime Minister's Office and the Secretariat, are located had virtually been sealed with office-goers facing hardships in reaching their workplaces.

The road leading to the Judges Colony had also been blocked for the general public. At many places, media personnel were also being prevented from carrying out their duties. Cameras of some of the mediamen had been confiscated by the police.

Meanwhile, nearly 60 Jamaat-e-Islami supporters organised a protest meeting, shouting slogans like ''Go Musharraf Go''. They included at least two Members of the National Assembly (MNAs).

They dispersed after police threatened to arrest them.
