Lahore: PML-Q president Ch Shujaat Hussain has said there is no democracy in the country rather civil dictatorship is visible everywhere.He was talking to a press conference after crackdown against the PAT workers and police action against Allama Dr Tahir ul Qadri.
He said civilian martial law has been imposed on Lahore, Shahbaz Sharif should not try to name Model Town as Jallianwala Town. He said case has been registered against Dr Tahir ul Qadri on charge of inciting the people whereas during N-League tenure Shahbaz Sharif’s statements were more harsh and stronger than those of Dr Tahir ul Qadri in which he had stated that they would drag President Zardari in the streets, would hang him upside down, the nation had not yet forgotten that the Supreme Court was attacked under the leadership of Shahbaz Sharif and during last tenure Shahbaz Sharif had damaged public properties in the protest processions in the name of load shedding and in the light of these statements 300 or 400 cases should have been registered against Shahbaz Sharif.
Ch Shujaat Hussain said whether it was Inqilab March or Azadi March all were on board and all were on road, democracy has not come in a proper manner in the country so far, real democracy will come only after the revolution.
He question to the journalists that what kind of democracy is that do not allow people to protest for their demands?FIR of killing of 14 innocent people could not be lodged and arrests were being made of the people who did nothing wrong.
Former Prime Minister Senator Ch Shujat Hussain asked Shahbaz Sharif to have open debate on tv, prove us banks defaulters, journalists be the judges and suggest punishment, merely resignation was no punishment.
Ch Shujat Hussain said that the govt itself was creating such circumstances that the army should have the opportunity to come, in these circumstances if the army comes then it would be viewed, two trucks and one jeep were enough for the army to come.
In response to a question whether the army has been called to protect important installations or for the Prime Minister’s House and the President’s House, Ch Shujat Hussain said that the army was “chowkidar” (protector) of Pakistan and not of the PM or the President’s Houses. He said that Pervez Musharraf will go out soon.
The PML -Q President said that on Youm-e-Shuhda on August 10, “Quran khwani” will be held for the martyrs of Zarb-e-Azb operation and Model Town tragedy. , Dr Tahir ul Qadri had very clearly stated while addressing a press conference yesterday at his residence that Quran khwani will be held for the martyred officers and jawans of operation Zarb-e-Azb but the govt was so much panicked that permission was not being granted even to offer prayers (dua) for the martyrs of Operation Zarb-e-Azan and Model Town tragedy. He said if this was going to happen in this country that Shahbaz Sharif should first kill innocent peaceful citizens by firing straight bullets and then their bereaved families would not be allowed to offer prayers (dua) for their dear and near ones. Ch Shujat Hussain said he was warning the govt to refrain from such acts otherwise Inqilab March may have to go to Islamabad via Jaati Umrah.
Ch Shujat Hussain said in reply to a question that we were in the opposition even during the era of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, he and Ch Parvez Elahi were jailed for the first time during Bhutto era but this novel work was being done during the tenure of Shahbaz Sharif only that no FIR should be allowed to be registered for any murder, FIR for murder of Nawab Mohammad Ahmad Khan was registered against Bhutto Sahib when he was the Prime Minister. He said that revolution would not be stopped by such mean tactics of the govt, days of the govt had been counted.
