Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri calls for immediate accountability of Sharifs
Thursday, Aug 31, 2017
PAT leader Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri has said that the motherland of Nawaz Sharif for business purpose is the UK and Pakistan is headquarter of their loot and plunder. He said that if immediate accountability of the Sharifs is not conducted, there is a fear that they can gang up with the foreign powers to help things worsen here. He said that they will be ready to sell anything for their vested interests. He said that real accountability will start only when they are banished from power. He said that they are dishonest and corrupt and lack the courage to face law. He said that the NAB court is bound by Section 16 of the NAB Ordinance to pass a verdict in one month, adding that the Supreme Court showed leniency by giving a deadline of six months for decisions in the NAB references.
Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri said this while talking to the media men outside the Lahore Airport soon after his arrival from the UK on the morning of August 31. Dr Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri, Dr Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri, Noorullah Siddiqi, Jawad Hamid, Raja Zahid, Hafiz Ghulam Farid and a large number of workers were present at the airport to receive their leader.
Dr Qadri said that the moment Justice Baqir Najfi Commission report is made public, government ministers including chief minister will be exposed. He informed the media men that Justice Mazahir Ali Akbar Naqvi has served a notice on the Punjab government time till September 12 about the Najfi Commission report and we are hopeful about it.
The PAT Chairman said that NAB has got a golden opportunity to establish its credibility regarding the references against the Sharif family. He said that only Iqama is not the basis of disqualification, adding that all cases against Sharifs involve corruption.
Dr Qadri said that he always celebrates Eid in Pakistan and journalists meet him on this occasion and they go to London, which is practically their home now. He said that the corrupt ruling elite has its business empire in all the five continents of the world. He said that when Nawaz Sharif became Punjab Chief Minister, the work through corruption and loot started on erecting a huge business empire. He said that in his view, Volume 10 contains whole information such as X-ray of corruption, its screening and MRI, adding that their evil character will be exposed finally. He said that even a state cannot have as many businesses as the ruling family has in the world. He said that the Supreme Court has disqualified the former PM, saying that such a big decision cannot be given on a flimsy pretext. He said that the Supreme Court has examined the whole issue in great detail.
Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri lauded the five-member bench of the apex court, stating that they have put the ruling family through the legal process by implementing the due process of law. He said that NAB sent three notices but no one appeared. They are now running away from accountability. He questioned whether NAB metes out a similar treatment to another accused?
Talking about Model Town tragedy, Dr Qadri said that as the power of the ruling family has weakened, it has led to opening the door of justice. He said that fair investigations are carried out only when the institutions are neutral and independent.
