The PAT chief will leave London today at 2pm and will stay in Dubai for a few hours before leaving for Pakistan. Earlier, PAT Supreme Council chairman Hassan Mohiyuddin Qadri had announced Qadri will reach Pakistan on June 29.
Dr Qadri had left Pakistan for United States last year on December 3, citing ill health as the reason for his departure. “I will continue to fulfill my commitment until my last breath,” the PAT chief had said, dismissing widespread rumours that he might not return.
