Tahir-ul-Qadri and Imran Khan

Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Chief Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri delayed the final move on the appeal of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, after a high-level delegation of the PTI called on him at his container late Friday.

It should be mentioned here that Dr. Qadri, after a vital meeting with Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif, announced in Friday’s wee hours that he extended his deadline by only 24 hours on the army chief’s request. He had declared also the negotiations will be carried forward provided that his three conditions, i.e. resignation of Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif and registration of fresh FIR of Model Town killings, are met in the extended deadline.

Referring to his meeting with Army Chief, Dr. Qadri underscored though, he gave 24-hour deadline for the fulfillment of his demands, he (army chief) gave no commitment, adding, “But, I may assure you that he must be making efforts to resolve the standoff.”

After the deadline lapsed, Dr. Qadri maintained, he had made up his mind to go for the final thrust Friday evening, adding, for the purpose, core committee’s meeting was called and a delegation led by PAT President Raheeq Abbasi was sent to consult with the PTI leadership.

The PAT chief briefed the Public Parliament of the background of his mental tilt towards waiting for some more time. According to him, the time may hold in store some good for the protesters who have been in attendance for nearly a month.

“I can read eyes and faces. I found General Raheel a sincere man, who must be straining for the good of this nation, the poor and those killed in Model Town massacre,” Dr. Qadri underlined informing that leaders of his party tried to make contacts with several people to ascertain the progress; but, no clue of ‘yes or no’ was traced as yet.

Rather sanguine and firm Dr. Qadri buoyed up the participants of the sit-in by saying, “A pleasant aspect is that it was for the first time on Thursday after 14 days of the sit-in opposite Parliament House, that Prime Minister accepted defeat as he requested the army chief for mediation.”

He also brightened up the protesters by informing the marchers that their patience unsettled the premier as he called a meeting of his cabinet during unusual hours late Friday. Dr. Qadri remarked Nawaz Sharif and his party were extremely humiliated on Friday after the ISPR denied his (Nawaz) false assertions that he uttered on National Assembly floor.

Tahirul Qadri placed two options before the protesters—first go for what they have already decided; or, second, be patient and wait for Allah’s succor.

The PAT chief said the vicious enemy sought to separate the two marches in their strategies and deal with them one after the other; however, he announced both Inqilab March and Azadi March will make combined strategy this evening.

Dr. Qadri asserted the marchers will not return homes without toppling the tyrannical rulers.

On this occasion, he was told by Shah Mehmood Qureshi about the PTI’s strategy of protest demonstrations in four cities—Karachi, Lahore, Faisalabad and Multan. Dr. Qadri welcomed the move by advising the workers of the PAT, Sunni Ittehad Council, PML-Q and Majlis Wahdat-ul-Muslimeen (MWM) Pakistan to protest in unison with the PTI workers and block roads.
