Lahore: The Chairman of Pakistan Awami Tehreek Dr. Tahirul Qadri has said that by appointing as minister a person nominated in a murder FIR proves that the Punjab Government has no consideration for the Law or does it have any respect for the democratic or moral norms. He said it would not have been a problem if the courts gave a clean chit to the murder accused.
Addressing PAT leaders and workers via video link the PAT chief said that the unmarked and unsigned Joint Investigative Team report released by a favourite officer of the Punjab Government is proof that the government does not respect or trust the Judicial Commission it appointed itself. He said that the very first thing the newly-appointed Governor has does was an unethical thing by taking oath from a person nominated in a murder case. He said the governor is the representative of the federation and should not have closed his eyes that the oath he is taking was from a murder accused and the case is pending in a court of law.
Dr. Tahirul Qadri said that all PAT wanted was a JIT consisting of honest and reliable officers with good repute otherwise we have examples where the Scotland Yard had to be invited to investigate murder cases. He said the appointment of Rana Sana Ullah as a Punjab Minister is a shameful act and now once again the ‘regime of murder and lawlessness’ will prevail in Punjab under the supervision of this minister. He said many more people will be killed and the Punjab Government will cover up all its crimes and this minister is a master at doing such things.
Dr. Tahirul Qadri said that we will ensure that the blood of the 14 PAT workers killed by police does not go to waste and we will not rest until the culprits are hanged. He said the Federal Government seems helpless when it comes to controlling crime as is evident from the fact the Balochistan is witnessing such killings every other day and the provincial government has failed to safeguard the life and property of the citizen of Balochistan. He said that the government did not have the moral courage or courtesy to go to the homes of the deceased and condole with the bereaved families.
