PAT Chairman Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri has said that Allah Almighty is the Greatest
Chief and the struggle for justice will never retire. He said even if the COAS could
not get us justice in the Model Town case, he would continue to fight the case of
the martyrs till the last breath of his life. He said that we are appearing in the
court of law to show that we are doing everything under the law to get justice but
the option of street power is present to get Qisas if need be.
Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri said that the Interior Minister has given his verdict by describing
the Cyril leak as controversial news, refusing to accept it as a breach of national
security. He said that the investigative committee will give its decision with five
members giving a clean chit while two members will add dissenting note. He said
that the ruling family has accepted the ownership of the properties based in London
and now it is their responsibility to give documentary evidence to prove the ownership.
He said that the Information Minister has been removed temporarily, adding that
he is of the considered opinion that the rulers will get a clean-chit in the Panama
and Cyril leaks.
Dr Qadri said that we are with the opposition parties including PPP, PTI and
JI that want accountability of the rulers on corruption. In an interview from London
yesterday, he said that burden of 14 martyrdoms and 100 injured people is on the
Sharif brothers. He said that he cannot pardon the Qisas from legal and Islamic
point of view but added in the same breath that he would continue to play his role
to seek justice. He said that the first case to be presented in the Court of Allah
Almighty on the Day of Judgment will be the one of the unjust killing of innocent
people and the hell will be the abode of the killers.
The PAT Chairman said that the Model Town judicial report lists the names and
addresses of the perpetrators of the tragedy and it is for this reason that it is
not being released. He said that our Qisas movement consists of three phases. In
the first phase, protests were held in more than 200 cities whereas the second and
third phases have yet to come. He said that the government has taken the form of
a mafia whereas the institutions have surrendered their independence to it. Commenting
on the Cyril leak, he said that at a time when justice is not being done in the
case of breach of national security, how will a common man get justice in his day
to day affairs? He said that the government has adopted an insulting attitude by
describing the Cyril leak as controversial news, adding that it was a planned strategy
to defame the institution of the Army. He said that the news item was purposefully
leaked out to the newspaper and the credibility of the military was undermined.
Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri said that the rulers will never make the mistake of forming
an independent commission consisting of neutral judges, stating further that they
would not repeat the mistake they made in establishing the Justice Najfi Commission
to investigate the Model Town massacre. He said that decision in the Panama leaks
can be delivered in a span of a week because what is to be established is the money
trail for properties purchased abroad.
He said that law comes into action against the weak segments of society whereas
the powerful get clean-chit. He said that Rs. 7500 million were recovered from the
house of Secretary Finance Balochistan and Rs. 2 billion from former provincial
minister of Sindh but nothing seems to have been done in these cases. He asked what
result came out when 100 people were martyred in an attack on the Civil Hospital
in Quetta and 50 people were killed in an attack on a shrine in Hub. He said that
people beholden to the rulers are manning FIA, NAB, and FBR. He said that the whole
nation will have to get together. He said that barbarism in the name of government
and dictatorship in the name of democracy is established in Pakistan. He said that
the powerful and moneyed people are able to win the whole election here, adding
that our struggle is for getting rid of the oppressive and corrupt system, which
will continue unabated.
