Qadri’s address to general council meeting: Nation asked to join Youm-e-Shuhda on August 10August 2, 2014
LAHORE: Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Chief Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri addressed a general council meeting on Sunday at PAT Secretariat in presence of like-minded parties including PML-Q of Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain, Sunni Ittihad Council (SIC), Majlis-e-Wahdatul Muslimeen (MWM) and others. Thousands of party members and workers attended the meeting.
Dr Qadri invited the nation on 10 August 2014 to participate in the Youm-e-Shuhada (Day of Martyrs) in Model Town Lahore to hold prayer session for the 14 PAT workers killed during the worst brutality in Pakistan’s history committed by Punjab government.
He warned the government that if any crackdown tactics are employed to stop the people from coming to the Day of Martyrs in Lahore, he would change the venue to Raiwind.
Dr Qadri stated clearly: “Green Revolution is bound to come in Pakistan and this government will fall before end of the month of August 2014.”
Dr Qadri said that if we wanted we could have held a sit-in after the 17 June killings of PAT workers until the end of this government but we didn’t and remained peaceful. “This is because our Army was busy in its operation against the militants we wanted to keep their focus on the operation. PAT spent the past 6 weeks going to courts and police stations for registering First Information Report (FIR), a written document prepared by police but on instructions of the Punjab government they even did not register the FIR even now.
Qadri said that 6 weeks had passed and the killers of 14 unarmed PAT workers were still enjoying government positions including the Chief Minister of Punjab. He stated that he had knowledge of phone calls recordings of Shahbaz Sharif and Nawaz Sharif which proved his involvement in killing of 14 unarmed PAT workers. It will be shown at the right time.
He said: “Blood of martyrs and the injured of Model Town tragedy will not go in vain.”
Dr Qadri said: “They should be aware that Pakistan has no democracy or law and order. Lives of Pakistani people are worse than dogs and cats living in households of western world.”
Shahid Mursaleen, spokesman of Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri said: “The present regime will end within 3 weeks and be jailed immediately after the revolution which is bound to come.”
