LAHORE: The Pakistan Muslim League – Quaid (PML-Q) has asked women not to participate in Pakistan Awami Tehreek chief Dr Tahirul Qadri’s revolution march to Islamabad, Express News reported on Monday.
During a party meeting, PML-Q Punjab president Chaudhry Pervez Elahi asked female members of his party as well as other women to refrain from joining the march, fearing brutal action from the government.
PML-Q leader Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain also urged women who were planning to attend the march with their children to stay at home owing to the 'harsh summer'.
Elahi also said that the party would not tolerate any unjust actions or hurdles placed to obstruct their march and would fight back.
The party has also asked men joining the march to carry with them food supplies that would last them a week.
