Qadri should wait for next elections: JUI-F
Imran, Qadri activities during Musharraf trial have connections
The Spokesperson of JUI, Jan Achakzai, has said that Dr. Tahir ul Qadri’s protest is not aimed at cleansing the system rather he wants to pack up the democratic polity of the country.
In a statement, he said that Qadri has no stakes in the country, including his investment, and even he is not ready to ditch his dual nationality. “How come you want to be a leader of 20 million Pakistanis when you are not prepared to offer this small sacrifice: ditching Canadian passport”, he asked.
Achakzai said that Dr Qadri does not get tired of citing Pakistani constitution but forgets that he has sworn allegiance to the Queen of England. “Do not forget your oath when you said: I swear by Almighty God that, on becoming a Canadian subject, I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, Her Heirs and Successors according to law”.
He said that Dr Qadri has no alternative solution and simply wants to dissolve assemblies which have no place in the constitution. He challenged if Dr Qadri contested elections today he would face a crushing defeat. Achakzai asked Dr Qadri to get rid of dual nationality, come to Pakistan, face criticism like any other politician, wait for next general elections and then participate, otherwise, gone are the days of coming into power through sneaking ways. He said that JUI will not allow any body to derail democracy under whatsoever slogan.
