Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL - STAFF RE­PORT

LAHORE—Pak­istan Mus­lim League-N MPA Hina Butt has said that the Pak­istan Awami Tehreek was us­ing the tragic Model Town in­ci­dent for po­lit­i­cal gains.

“The prime ob­jec­tive of Pak­istan Awami Tehreek was to cre­ate in­sta­bil­ity and chaos in the coun­try,” she said, adding that “sea­sonal rev­o­lu­tion” by rad­i­cal­is­ing the in­no­cent masses was un­called for in pre­vail­ing cir­cum­stances es­pe­cially when the gov­ern­ment was striv­ing hard to­wards pros­per­ity.

She said Tahirul Qadri, through his ag­gres­sive and emo­tional speeches, was hid­ing facts and cre­at­ing po­lit­i­cal pro­pa­ganda. “Po­lit­i­cal ac­tors like Qadri, who don’t feel “safe” liv­ing in Pak­istan, should re­alise that their games are over and peo­ple have re­jected them over and over again.

Hina re­called that soon af­ter the Model Town in­ci­dent, a case was reg­is­tered in the Faisal Town po­lice sta­tion on the in­struc­tion of the court, while a case had also been reg­is­tered against po­lice of­fi­cials and 42 PAT ac­tivists as well.
