PTI announces to join Qadri’s protest.Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Thursday announced that PTI would join the Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Tahirul Qadri for the protest he has announced for January 17.

While addressing a press conference, he stated that PTI’s tigers will join Dr Tahirul Qadri when he begins his grand protest against the government on January 17. However, Imran Khan has also requested Chief justice to take suo moto notice of the Model Town incident, saying there had been “no headway” in the case for the past four years “because Shahbaz Sharif is sitting at the top” in the province.

He also criticized the alleged role played by Sanaullah in the tragedy, who, Khan alleged, “had been accused of murders” by people in his own party. Speaking on the murder and rape of six-year-old Zainab in Kasur, he said that the people, including the victim’s father, had been demanding justice from the CJP and the chief of army staff (COAS) because they had lost faith in the Punjab police and government.

“It is not as if these kinds of crimes do not happen in other countries; but a civilised society decides that such crimes will not be allowed to take place in the future whenever such incidents happen.
He explained his perspective saying that the incident may not have taken place had strict action been taken against the culprits involved in the 2015 Kasur child abuse scandal.
He also criticized the police’s firing on grieving protesters on Wednesday, which ended up killing two people, asking: “What professional police does this?” he asked.

He also criticised the police in Punjab for acting with impunity because the Sharif family had been “using it to protect themselves and act on their orders.”
The PTI chief, whose party is leading the government in Khyber Pakhtnukhwa (KP), also presented statistics on how crime has fallen in KP since 2014, adding that the same could happen in Punjab if police reforms are initiated.
