Had the elements behind the Model Town killings been punished, the Daska incident would not have occurred, Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chairman Dr Tahirul Qadri said on Monday.

Addressing the 26th Foundation Day of the party, Qadri said: “The Punjab government has been using police for political purposes, giving them a licence to kill civilians.”

He said that the government had failed to maintain the law and order. “Rangers have now been ordered to bring the situation under control,” Qadri said. The PAT chief praised the Lahore High Court chief justice for taking notice of the Daska incident. “Had the higher judiciary taken similar action following the Model Town incident, the people responsible for it would have been behind bars by now,” he said.

He said that PAT and Minajul Quran workers would participate in the events planned to be held on the day of mourning announced by lawyers.
