Minhajul Quran International (MQI) leader, Dr. Tahirul Qadri, has denounced all allegations of a conspiracy in Tuesday''s unexpected turn of events and criticised those who were suspecting the Supreme Court''s intentions.
Qadri was referring to allegations that propped up after the Supreme Court ordered Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf''s arrest moments after Qadri''s address, reports The Express Tribune. Qadri said he not even know that the rental power plants case hearing was taking place.
He criticised all those who were saying the incident was too much of a coincidence and was actually a well-planned conspiracy. Protesters rallied for a third day in the largest political demonstration seen for years in the capital, calling on the government to quit after the Supreme Court ordered the arrest of the prime minister. Tens of thousands of followers of Pakistani-Canadian Qadri have gathered near parliament house.
A general election is due to be held by mid-May, but Qadri wants parliament dissolved immediately and a caretaker government set up in consultation with the military and the judiciary, to implement key reforms before the polls are held. (ANI)
