Model Town violence plot hatched in PM House: Qadri

Nov 30, -0001

LAHORE: Hours after returning home, chief of Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT), Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri, claimed that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif had plotted 2014 violence of Model Town which left 14 of his party workers dead, Samaa reported Monday.

He demanded operation in Punjab against those involved in killing of his supporters.

“This conspiracy of bloodshed was hatched in PM House Islamabad and executed by Shahbaz Sharif,” he claimed while addressing media persons at his residence in Lahore.

The PAT chief refused to accept government’s Joint Investigation Team (JIT) formed over the incident.

“Media had exposed the killers, no JIT is required to identify the attackers, this nation and the media are the actual JITs who know the attackers… We don’t accept the JIT formed by the killers themselves and is failed to expose real culprits,” the PAT chief said.

He called upon Rangers and security forces to take notice of the incident, urging them to kick off a Karachi-like action against the killers. “We are waiting for the day when Karachi-like operation will be started in Punjab to provide justice to victims.”

“We will not let you go, will continue our battle until you are sent to gallows,” Qadri addressed the rulers.

He thanked supporters for welcoming him at airport despite fasting and severe heat of Lahore.

Qadri Lands in Lahore

Earlier, Qadri arrived in Lahore through a flight from Dubai. A large number of PAT workers were present inside and outside the airport to welcome the cleric-cum-politician who has returned home after seven months.

Tight security arrangements were made by the Punjab government for Dr. Qadri’s security.

The PAT chief later led a rally of his supporters from the airport to residence in Model Town.

The PAT chief left Heathrow airport on Saturday night and reached Dubai on Sunday night from where he reached Lahore.

Qadri is also expected to perform Itikaf in last Ashra of Ramazan. – Samaa
