Qadri’s challenge: Rasheed tasks Ashrafi for debate
The Government now a days, is busy dealing with some core issues and major challenges include the offensive in North Waziristan, IDPs issue, August 14 official ceremony, Imran Khan’s sit-in, Musharraf Case and the Allama Tahir ul Qadri’s call of a revolution.
To explain what steps the Government is taking pertaining to all these affairs, the Information Minister issued a statement on Saturday.
In his statement, Pervez Rasheed clearly mentioned that nobody will be allowed to create an atmosphere of terror and chaos in the state. He said it is no patriotism to pave way for terrorism in the country, under the guise of democratic liberties.
The Information Minister stated Imran Khan’s march is not going to last more than a day, it will transform into a quick march and will take a ‘U-turn’.
Rasheed while accepting Allama Tahir ul Qadri’s challenge for a debate, presented the name of Allama Tahir Ashrafi, chairman of Pakistan Ulema Council (PUC) and suggested Pakistan Television Network (PTV) to be the platform for it.
He also welcomed the transformation of Qadri’s revolution into a debate.
Yesterday, Dr Tahir ul Qadri had challenged the Prime Minister for a dialogue with him, but the Information Minister presented the name of Allama Tahir Ashrafi for the debate.
This is however still to be confirmed as to the Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif and Tahir Ashrafi are also aware of this situation or not.
