LAHORE: Tehreek-e-Minhajul Quran (TMQ) chief Dr Tahirul Qadri on Thursday said that a Taliban supported government has come into power after strange elections where both the winners and losers have staged protests against rigging.

Qadri said that the Election Commission of Pakistan, which is illegal, has held this general election by design. He said super powers needed to see TTP’s friendly government in ruling as their withdrawal is scheduled in 2014.

With ISAF moving equipment wroth of billions rupees through Pakistan, the TMQ chief said they needed a Taliban supported government in Center and in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.

Qadri said the May 11 elections were unique in the sense that winners and losers both were protesting on the roads by leveling allegations of rigging on the other.

    Qadri Sahib you are right in your assessment. Don’t worry this newly invented and fabricated parliament will not be there for more than two years. All this has been designed both by internal and external players to fulfill the demands of 2014 and slightly above. Ultimately there will be technocratic government which will remain for next 10-15 years. In fact people want to see progress in Power sector, economy, law and order, and elimination of corruption and terrorism. No one is interested who rules the country.

    @junaid:

    What is he right about ?
    He says that both winners and losers are protesting rigging and that mesmerizes you ?

    Just ask him or yourself that ON WHAT GROUNDS or LOGIC is he saying that this government has been supported by taliban ? Do you even know what it means to admit when you say a government is being supported by the taliban ?

    Are you two sane and responsible Pakistanis ?????!!!

    There is a big difference between a government supported by Taliban and a government that is trying to appease the Taliban or not willing to take a firm stand. A Government that does not care about the well being and safety of its citizens and just wants to rule for personal (read financial) gains.

    Can you do anything in Pakistan without blaming the Americans or “superpowers”? Conspiracy theory is one thing but this is so obviously stupid that he should have been laughed off the podium.

    Somebody has to tell the truth openly and honestly and the truth hurts! The election was hijacked by TTP for the two winning rightwing parties and provided a walkover for them by unleashing a reign on terror on liberal parties.

    This guy was ridiculed left, right and center when he warned about the elections before. Like him or not, in retrospect he has been spot-on about everything so far.
