Dr Tahirul Qadri is against ‘polio’ but holds a different perspective

Dr Tahirul Qadri

ISLAMABAD: The leader of Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Dr Tahirul Qadri said that his party’s May 11 protest would be against the ‘polio of corruption’ and against the government.

Qadri was giving an exclusive interview to a private news channel when he termed the present system as spineless and incapable.

He categorically maintained that May 11 protest rally was against the ‘corrupt system’ and not the government. “I am not after making or breaking the governments but rather the end of the system that tramples the rights of masses as it was a product of corruption,” he added.

He also said that “The outbreak of corruption will have to be contained before everyone is infected. Thus the organs of government should also be vaccinated against this crippling disease so that it could be prevented from becoming morally handicapped further.”

To a question, Dr Qadri said if a martial law was imposed in Pakistan he would stand by his millions of fellow countrymen to fight against it.

PakistanTribe reported on May 7 that citing security threats and terrorist attacks, Rawalpindi city administration had decided not to allow Dr Tahirul Qadri to hold a protest rally on May 11.

The sources privy to city administration and higher ups said on Monday that until recently it was not decided whether to allow PAT to hold protest on May 11.
