Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri has said that real change would not come about by becoming part of the oppressive, exploitative and corrupt system but by launching a whole-hearted struggle against it. He said that current electoral system was the real enemy of the people. He said that the ruling elite possessed the mentality of Pharaoh and considered the people as their slaves.
“The Central Working Council forbade me to come to the country for last three years, now I have decided to return to Pakistan in November this year,” Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri said.
Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri expressed these views while addressing the worldwide Workers Conventions of MQI held across the world including 225 cities of Pakistan. The proceedings of the Convention were broadcast live the world over through Minhaj.tv.
It was the first Convocation of history of religious and political parties whereby the workers of MQI listened to the speech of Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri at the same time through most modern technology.
Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri declared that Minhaj-ul-Quran International would continue its Public Awareness drive and invest more energy in making people aware of the causes that lay at the heart of their predicaments. He said that the system that characterized the running of the country was pro-elite and did not have either the support or participation of the masses in whose name it had been foisted upon them.
He said that 180 people of this country were powerless having little access to any kind of rights, economic resources and opportunities of a decent and civilized life, for all the economic and political power remained concentrated in the hands of corrupt elite. He said that the situation had come to such a pass that the people had now started questioning the rationale of the establishment of the country.
