LAHORE: Law minister of Punjab, Rana Mashood, said police were out to arrest Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Tahirul Qadri after he was charged on Sunday with murder after a policeman was killed during clashes with his supporters.

"Qadri is responsible for killing police officials and his own workers. Police have booked him for terrorism and murders and will arrest him soon," said the minister, Mashood.

The police constable was wounded in Lahore on Friday in confrontations with followers of Qadri, and died of his injuries late Saturday, police said.

"A case of murder, inciting violence and treason have been registered against Tahirul Qadri and his supporters," senior police official Zulfiqar Hameed told AFP.

Well dear Law minister of Punjab, Rana Mashood. How much more lawless can you become? Why not frame a charge on Quaid Azam? Dear Law minister. If I am not wrong are you not reliving the antics of your forefatheres like Rana Runjeet Singh? You surely are. After all you prove through your deeds that one day you will NOT be hauled before the Supreme Judge, just because you are a Law minister administering the Laws of the Jungle.

And what about those 8 PAT workers killed at the same day by your police? Who will be arrested for their killings?
