PAT’s Martyrs Day: Qadri announces Revolution March on August 14August 9, 2014
LAHORE: Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) on Sunday observed the Martyrs Day by holding a mammoth public gathering in front of Minhaj-ul-Quran International Secretariat in Lahore. The event marked the recent killing of PAT workers and supporters that took place in the Model Town of Lahore due to clash between police and PAT workers.
Addressing the gathering, Dr Qadri announced to launch Revolution March on 14 August 2014. He said the Revolution March and the Independence March would go together. He asked his party workers and supporters to counter any attack if carried out on them. “Don’t tolerate any oppression, but don’t do any oppression against any one. “Our peaceful revolution is democratic and constitutional. We condemn terrorism in its forms,” Qadri maintained.
He said everyone will have to come out and no one will return till the government is toppled and the system changed. “The country has never seen such atrocities in its history. The days of government are numbered,” he said.
Dr Qadri said baseless charges of money laundering and tax evasion were levelled against him despite he had been paying tax regularly. “If any harm happens to me, revenge my death. There is need to launch joint struggle for revolution.”
He said atrocities in the country had reached peak, therefore, they want to bring real democracy in the country.
Pakistan Muslim League–Quaid leader Chaudhry Pervez Elahi, Sunni Ittehad Council chairman Sahibzada Hamid Raza, Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed and Muttahida Qaumi Movement leader Rasheed Godel also attended the event.
