The Miracle - - Editorial Views -

In an ef­fort to “re­quest” the La­hore High Court (LHC) to make the Na­jfi com­mis­sion re­port on the 2014 Model Town tragedy pub­lic, the fam­i­lies of the vic­tims — on Pak­istan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chair­man Tahirul Qadri’s call — staged a sit-in on La­hore’s Mall Road on Wed­nes­day. Along with Qadri, the pro­test­ers were joined by Awami Mus­lim League chief Sheikh Rashid and Pak­istan Tehreek-i-In­saf’s Fawad Chaudhry and Fir­dous Ashiq Awan. While ad­dress­ing the pro­test­ers, Qadri said that the “mur­der­ers” of the Model Town vic­tims “have only lost their po­si­tion in the gov­ern­ment” af­ter the Pana­m­a­gate case ver- dict, “but the time is not far when you will lose your life for mur­der­ing the in­no­cent peo­ple of Model Town.” As­sur­ing the crowd that he would not stop un­til the cul­prits of the Model Town in­ci­dent have been taken to task, Qadri said: “The strug­gle is not over yet. We will con­tinue on this path un­til jus­tice is served.”
