LAHORE: Chairman Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri has demanded the release of Justice Baqar Najafi Commission Report on Model Town incident, ARY News reported on Saturday.
He made the demand while addressing a PAT’s rally against Model Town incident in Lahore via video link.
Qadri said that his party will continue their struggle for justice and Qisas of the victims. He added that the elements — held responsible for the incident in the commission’s report — should be exposed.
“The rulers will not be able to protect those who shed the blood of innocent people,” he added
The PAT chief asked what was the object of the incident and why police had reached the area. He claimed that certain elements committed the atrocities as they were “afraid of a revolutionary movement”.
