LAHORE: Allama Tahirul Qadri, head of Minhajul Qur’an International (MQI), said the government should improve the current setup by January 10 or else he will lead a protest march to Islamabad on January 14.

Qadri was addressing a gathering named “Siyasat nahi, Riyasat bachao” at Minar-e-Pakistan, Lahore.

Criticising those in power, Qadri said in order to save the country, the people of Pakistan must decide if they will let corrupt people represent them.

Referring to the recent investigative report on country’s lawmakers who don’t pay taxes, Qadri said such people should not be allowed to become a part of the parliament.

“How can people who themselves break laws be allowed to sit in the parliament,” he said.

He also said that the parliament formulates laws that are in favour of the lawmakers rather than the people of Pakistan.

Speaking about his political plans, Qadri said his entire agenda is in accordance with the Constitution of Pakistan.

He further added that the much-anticipated election should take place but the concerned authorities should ensure it is conducted according to the Constitution.

The leader of MQI had earlier said that he wanted revolutionary changes in political and electoral system of the country.

Qadri had said that he successfully defended the true image of Islam in the West, claiming that now they are convinced the true image of Islam is not that the one adopted by terrorists.

    Few points to ponder for Qadri Faithful. 1. One of his speeches he proposed Chinese Model for Pakistan. As a Sheikh ul Islam and Quran Scholar why he could not find any model from Islam?
    2. If Chinese Model is so good, then why he did not migrate to China, instead he made Canada his home? Why he did not propose Canadian Model for Pakistan.? The only reason I could see is that Canadian model proposes equal rights for women, minorities and gays.
    He is no different than Imran and others. He and his family deserves blessings of Western Civilization and we poor people deserve “Chinese Danda.”

    The question really is, why is it shock……………….only for PML N……why not PPP, MQM, PMLQ, ANP or even PTI for that matter. Is it that all parties and establishment, especially are afraid of PML N and thats why they are trying as hard as they can. Why nobody goes to sindh and baluchistan.

    IK has done a good thing to tour interior sindh. why people of sindh are being left with no option but to vote for PPP. all parties including PML N should work hard in sindh and baluchistan as well……..only in this way the voter can be educated ………….and after two or three cycle of elections, some form of better leadership might start to appear.

    Current set up of Pakistan is corrupt.I support Mr Quari views that the any person who do not pay tax should not be allowed to stand in election. If we want to save Pakistan from corrupt politicians and officials we must make certain that only honest and educated person be allowed to take part in the election. To do that the present system must be modified and election must be held under caretaker government supervised the judiciary. All pakistanis should vote for honest and sincere person thogh it is very hard ti find one but still it is possible. We must learn from our neighbour India’s great achievement in achieving great progress in all sector and now is the third largest economy in Asia.
    India created more provinces due to social,cultural and geopolitical reasons. This mde a tremendous change in the mind of Indians as they feel oneness and more participitation in the government. Pakistan must mke at least 1 province in KPK,1 in Baluchistan,1 in Sindh and 2 in Punjab. Even Bangladesh has created 6 more divisions. Had Pakistan created 4 provinces in East Pakistan in 1947 then Bangladesh would never been on the map.

I cannot understand why people cannot take things for what they are. I am somebody who lives in the UK and graduated as a chemical Eng here here and to be honest I am so proud we have intellectuals like Dr Qadri. I personally witnessed a session at Warwick University where there were many Professors and others who were questioning him very strongly on Islam and he is the only one that could give extremely good answers and defended Islam. I think we people are really blind not to realise when we have someone special amongst us. I speak as someone who loves Pakistan all my Pakistani brothers and sisters wake up this is the Pakistan we were proud of at one stage and we were compared to the Indians in the same bracket however these corrupt leaders and system have now taken us to a stage where even indians and Bengalis laugh at us.

    Mr.Quadri did not specify in his speech what changes he wishes to be made in the elections. His speech and demands are vague and incomplete. It appears he is himself confused in this matter. It appears he is simply blackmailing the government. He has proved a complete failure in politics in the past. No concrete results are expected from him. However he has succeeded in gathering the people in his address at Minar-i-Pakistan.

    Oh my! Having read the naïve conspiracies that people have posted regarding Dr Tahir ul Qadri’s motives, I must say I’m in agreement with the political commentator Hassan Nisar when he said that the only people ranting and raving about Dr Qadri’s HUGE impact on Pakistani politics are those that have had their tails stamped on!!! The beneficiaries of the current corrupt electoral system and their allies stand to lose out. A system which fails to address the exploitation of the tens of millions of voters who are coerced into selling their votes for fear of retribution or quite simply due to the fact that they happen to be poor and have no provision of security because they can’t afford to pay the corrupt police bribes to protect them. Thus naturally those that stand to lose out have be shouting and screaming, after all they won’t be able any longer to pass tax laws for the masses that they violate themselves as parliamentarians. With regards to all the unfounded accusations and sensational conspiracies it suffices to say that time will judge whether or not people were completely off their trolleys or whether their views were justified. In my opinion it’s the former!!! Pakistan Zindabad!Recommend
