Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri terms JIT report ludicrous & murder of justice

Addressing the press conference live from Toronto (Canada) through video link on Wednesday evening, PAT chief Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri said that the JIT report is ludicrous and murder of justice to say the least. He said that we do not have even a grain of doubt regarding the involvement of Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif, Rana Sanaullah, IG Police and Dr Toquir Shah in the Model Town tragedy. He said that we strongly reject this ludicrous report, adding that we were left with no option but to take to streets to get justice and we would continue to use this democratic right till justice is dispensed.

PAT President Dr Raheeq Abbasi, Sheikh Zahid Fayyaz, Jawad Hamid, Nooruallah Saddique and Raja Zahid were also present in the press conference.

Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri said that he wants to inform the Army Chief, national institutions and the whole nation that the Sharif kingdom is paving the way for emergence of Islamic State (IS) in Pakistan and wasting the sacrifices rendered during Operation Zarb-e-Azb. He said that as long as these rulers stay imposed on the nation, terrorism cannot end from here. He said that political existence of the Sharif dynasty is the greatest conspiracy against Pakistan. He said that Taliban were the first to emerge due to these rulers and now the way is being paved for IS due to rulers’ oppressive attitude.

Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri announced to return to Pakistan in the month of June. He, however, added that before coming to Pakistan, he would attend the launching ceremony of 15 of 25 books he has authored on the subject of terrorism. The ceremony would take place in London. He said that curriculum designed for promotion of peace and elimination of terrorism under his direct supervision will also be launched on his arrival in Pakistan. He said that peace curriculum has been prepared with great care, which will be helpful in persuading the youth to stay away from the path of radicalism and terrorism.

Talking about the JIT report, Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri said that SP Salman Ali is a dummy character who was made to flee through the good offices of the current rulers. He said that Dr Toquir Shah, who is a central character in the Model Town killings, was sent abroad as Ambassador to WTO and all characters involved in Model Town have been appointed on key positions. He said that the Punjab Chief Minister stated in his affidavit that he came to know of the Model Town incident at 9 a.m. on June 17, whereas the fact remains that all martyrdoms took place after 11 p.m. He said that despite this glaring fact being on record, the JIT had the audacity to conclude that the relation of the Punjab Chief Minister with the Model Town incident could not be established. He said that may Allah Almighty accurse the one who enters into any deal, or even considers any such offer and who makes a false allegation of a deal.

The PAT chief said that what to speak of buying the PAT leadership, the rulers were unable to buy the conscience of the heirs of martyrs despite making offers of millions of rupees to them. He said that the Model Town tragedy is not an accident or an isolated incident; rather it is the result of a careful and long-drawn-out planning. He said that the rulers have inducted extremists, terrorists and criminals into the police force to achieve their vested political interests who get paid from the national exchequer but do the bidding for their political masters.

Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri said that had the perpetrators of Model Town killings been punished, the Daska tragedy would not have taken place. He said that the protest campaign, which took off on May 21, will continue till the mid of June in 40 cities of the country, adding that he would announce next course of action on his arrival. He told the press conference that he would be in Pakistan in June.

Throwing light on his health condition, Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri said that he remained quite unwell for two months wherein he continued to suffer severe chest pain. He said that his reports have now been sent to six different doctors for examination and opinion and it is on their return that some definitive opinion can be ventured out regarding the status of his health.

Answering the questions of journalists, Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri said that the Commission established to probe election rigging is a kind of JIT of the Sharif kingdom. He said that he was telling the nation in advance that the commission would validate and authenticate the general elections 2013. He said neither any formal alliance was established in London nor should anyone have any misunderstanding in this respect. He said that the Chaudhry brothers got a proper appointment for a meeting with him, whereas his meeting with Imran Khan was coincidental. In reply to another question, he said that those who established a judicial commission on Model Town got the legal position of the commission challenged by a private lawyer soon after its formation. He said that it has been many months since we have filed a plea to get the copy of the commission on Model Town but have not succeeded so far. He said that proceedings get adjourned after every hearing.
