LAHORE: The Pakistan Awami Tehreek has postponed its Qisas Movement against the government in the wake of the Quetta carnage, which left more than 70 people dead. The protests to demand justice for victims of Model Town massacre were planned for August 16 till August 20.
PAT Chairman Tahirul Qadri announced his decision in a press conference on Tuesday where all PAT leaders and workers wore black armbands to show solidarity with the Quetta blast victims.
Qadri criticised the government for not implementing the National Action Plan against terrorism, blaming it for the deadly blast in Quetta.
