LAHORE – Tehreek-e-Minhajul Quran chief Dr Tahirul Qadri has called police action against his workers as ‘state terrorism’ and said it would not be tolerated.
Addressing the party workers via video link, he said the case of workers killing would be lodged against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif. He said that the government does not want military operation in North Waziristan to be successful.
He said that barriers were placed four years back. He asked why these were not removed at that time. He also said that police opened straight fire on peaceful workers. He paid rich tribute to the workers on their courage. He said that the police attacked the workers when they were sleeping.
Punjab Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs Rana Sanaullah said that Tahriul Qadri had deployed a private militia at his residence and created no-go areas. He said this (situation) would not be allowed. A case had been launched and a judicial inquiry of the incident would be conducted, he said.
