Model Town victims’ families to stage sit-in in Lahore on Aug 16, announces Tahirul Qadri
LAHORE: Tahir-ul-Qadri on Friday announced that families of Model Town massacre and party workers will gather on Lahore’s Mall road on August 16 (Wednesday) to demand publication of Baqir Najfi Commission report.
“I appeal to the Chief Justice of the Lahore High Court to order publication of the Najfi Commission report. We want to know what the report has revealed regarding the dismal incident,” Tahir-ul-Qadri said while talking to media.
He regretted that Justice Najfi Commission was set up to probe the killings of 14 people but its inquiry report was never made public.
Responding to former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s criticism against him for having Canadian nationality,Tahir-ul-Qadri said Iqama was tantamount to half the citizenship, so you yourself have got foreign nationality.

Tahir-ul-Qadri said the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) of Panama Leaks case was constituted to detect corruption of billions of rupees. On appearance of the report, the Supreme Court disqualified “the thief”, he added.
He said the rulers were unable to fathom what to do as masses have turned down Nawaz’s rally.
The PAT chief also repented over death of a young boy after a car of the cavalcade of the ousted PM hit him.
“These rulers are so cruel and senseless that they left a boy seriously injured who later succumbed to his injuries and died,” he said.
