Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

LA­HORE—Pun­jab s law min­is­ter Rana Sanaullah, while re­spond­ing to Dr Tahirul Qadri ad­dress dur­ing Pak­istan Awami Tehreek (PAT) sit-in staged at Mall Road La­hore on Fri­day, said that the PAT chief should adopt le­gal op­tion for trial of Model Town tragedy in the mil­i­tary courts. Mean­while, Pak­istan Mus­lim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Talal Chaudhry while talk­ing to Dunya News said that Dr Tahirul Qadri is play­ing with peo­ple s emo­tions in the name of re­li­gion.

He fur­ther said that Prime Min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif is cur­rently out of coun­try due to ill­ness and will re-turn to Pak­istan soon. Ear­lier, Pak­istan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Tahirul Qadri asked Army chief Gen­eral Ra­heel Sharif to give jus­tice to vic­tims of The Model Town in­ci­dent through mil­i­tary courts. Qadri was ad­dress­ing sit-in or­ga­nized by PAT, whereas lead­ers of Pak­istan Peo­ple’s Party (PPP), Pak­istan Tehreek-e-In­saf (PTI), Awami Mus­lim League (AML), Ja­maat Is­lami (JI) were also in at-ten­dance.

He said that fam­ily mem­bers of de­ceased peo­ple in Model Town tragedy were of­fered high-level jobs abroad and for 30 years he had taught his work­ers to live with valor and dig­nity. Qadri also said that this gov­ern­ment may not last un­til Septem­ber as th­ese rulers made Pak­istan iso­lated in this world. He added that Pak­istan can­not be ruled by cor­rupt and in­ca­pable kings as Pak­istan’s law can­not catch the op­pres­sors.

He ac­cused Pun­jab Chief Min­is­ter (CM) She­hbaz Sharif and said that he had been act­ing as a worka-holic and ap­peared to be work­ing 14 to 15 hours per day but he was sleep­ing on June 17 when 14 peo­ple were shot down in Model Town by Pun­jab Po­lice dur­ing con­stant fir­ing for 12 hours. The mur­der­ers were dif­fer­ent po­lice of­fi­cers in­clud­ing DIG, DSPs, SHOs and other bru­tal po­lice of­fi­cers but mas­ter­minds of the whole plan were Prime Min­is­ter (PM) Nawaz Sharif and CM Pun­jab She­hbaz Sharif, he added.

Qadri also said that PM was not in­ter­ested in se­cu­rity of the coun­try and Pak­istan’s law sys­tem could not pro­vide jus­tice to any help­less. Talk­ing about the le­gal pro­ceed­ings he said that 3 se­nior min­is­ters were sent to meet ses­sion judge and de­spite or­ders by High Court the case could not pro­ceed due gov­ern­ment pres­sure. He thanked print me­dia and elec­tronic me­dia who broad­casted the hap­pen­ings of vi­cious fir­ing risk­ing their lives.

He said that when he with PAT work­ers reached Islamabad, Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Gen­eral Ra­heel Sharif ac­cepted to act as ar­bi­tral re­gard­ing the is­sue. In the his­tory of Pak­istan it had never hap­pened that wit­nesses were blamed as sus­pects fil­ing more than two cases on one per­son, PAT chief said. He also raised ques­tion over an anti-ter­ror­ism court where the case could not pro­ceed as the judge was sup­posed to re­tire in April 2015.
