Lahore High Court Decision on Dr Tahirul Qadri Moral Turpitude

2002: Dr Tahirul Qadri was one of those who supported the sham referendum of a US Backed Military Dictator General Pervez Musharraf: The government has its own line-up. The supporters include the PML (Quaid-e-Azam), a breakaway faction of the PML(N), Imran Khan's Tehreek-e-Insaaf, former president Farooq Leghari's Millat Party, Tahirul Qadri's Pakistan Awami Tehreek, the breakaway faction of the PPP in the NWFP, headed by jailed former chief minister, Aftab Khan Sherpao and former federal minister, Omar Asghar Khan's National Democratic Party. Besides these, the Awami National Party and the Mutahidda Qaumi Movement (MQM) have extended their silent support to the general by not taking a decision on the issue and leaving it to their workers. Another stratum of political support for the general comes from mayors and councillors in the local government put in place by the regime through its devolution plan. Even those mayors and councillors who are members of the opposition parties like the PPP, the PML(N) and the JI, find it hard, given the local government structures, to oppose the general or try to sabotage his plans from within.

Barelvi Fatwa of "Kufr (Apostasy)" against Dr Tahirul Qadri

2008: The man, who rigged 2002 polls, spills the beans  ISLAMABAD: The main wheeler and dealer of the ISI during the 2002 elections, the then Maj-Gen Ehtesham Zamir, now retired, has come out of the closet and admitted his guilt of manipulating the 2002 elections, and has directly blamed Gen Musharraf for ordering so. Talking to The News, the head of the ISI’s political cell in 2002, admitted manipulating the last elections at the behest of President Musharraf and termed the defeat of the King’s party, the PML-Q, this time “a reaction of the unnatural dispensation (installed in 2002).” Zamir said the ISI together with the NAB was instrumental in pressing the lawmakers to join the pro-Musharraf camp to form the government to support his stay in power. Looking down back into the memory lane and recalling his blunders which, he admitted, had pushed the country back instead of taking it forward, Zamir feels ashamed of his role and conduct. Massively embarrassed because he was the one who negotiated, coerced and did all the dirty work, the retired Maj-Gen said he was not in a position to become a preacher now when his own past was tainted. He said the country would not have faced such regression had the political management was not carried out by the ISI in 2002. But he also put some responsibility of the political disaster on the PML-Q as well. The former No: 2 of the ISI called for the closure of political cell in the agency, confessing that it was part of the problem due to its involvement in forging unnatural alliances, contrary to public wishes. Zamir’s blaming Musharraf for creating this unnatural alliance rings true as another former top associate of Musharraf, Lt-Gen (retd) Jamshed Gulzar Kiyani has already disclosed that majority of the corps commanders, in several meetings, had opposed Musharraf’s decision of patronising the leadership of the King’s party. “We had urged Musharraf many times during the corps commanders meeting that the PML-Q leadership was the most condemned and castigated personalities. They are the worst politicians who remained involved in co-operative scandals and writing off loans. But Musharraf never heard our advice,” Kiyani said while recalling discussions in their high profile meetings. He said one of their colleagues, who was an accountability chief at that time, had sought permission many times for proceeding against the King’s party top leaders but was always denied. Kiyani asked Musharraf to quit, the sooner the better, as otherwise the country would be in a serious trouble. Ma-Gen (retd) Ehtesham Zamir termed the 2008 elections ‘fairer than 2002’. He said the reason behind their fairness is that there was relatively less interference of intelligence agencies this time as compared to the last time. But he stopped short of saying that there was zero interference in the 2008 polls. “You are quite right,” he said when asked to confirm about heavy penetration of ISI into political affairs during the 2002 elections. But he said he did not do it on his own but on the directives issued by the government. Asked who directed him from the government side and if there was somebody else, not President Musharraf, he said: “Obviously on the directives of President Musharraf.” Asked if he then never felt that he was committing a crime by manipulating political business at the cost of public wishes, he said: “Who should I have told except myself. Could I have asked Musharraf about this? I was a serving officer and I did what I was told to do. I never felt this need during the service to question anyone senior to me,” he said and added that he could not defend his acts now. “It was for this reason that I have never tried to preach others what I did not practice. But I am of the view that the ISI’s political cell should be closed for good by revoking executive orders issued in 1975,” he said. Responding to a question regarding corruption cases that were used as pressure tactics on lawmakers, he said: “Yes! This tool was used, not only by the ISI. The NAB was also involved in this exercise.” Former corps commander of Rawalpindi, Lt-Gen (retd) Jamshed Gulzar Kiyani said majority of corps commanders had continued opposing Musharraf’s alliance with top leadership of the PML-Q. “Not just in one meeting, we opposed his alignment with these corrupt politicians in many meetings but who cared. Now Musharraf has been disgraced everywhere, thanks to his political cronies.” REFERENCE: The man, who rigged 2002 polls, spills the beans Umar Cheema Sunday, February 24, 2008 Ansar Abbasi on MQM and Dr Tahirul Qadri Thursday, January 03, 2013, Safar 20, 1434 A.H.

2006: Party to re-elect Musharraf: Pervaiz : LAHORE, March 23: Chief Minister Pervaiz Elahi says the PML will re-elect Gen Musharraf president-in-uniform to ensure the continuity of his policies which saved the country from default and being tagged as a terrorist state. Addressing a workers convention here on Thursday, he said the PML wanted the country to continue to progress under the leadership of Gen Musharraf. He said no matter whether somebody liked the idea or not, the PML would choose President Musharraf for another term. The chief minister’s speech set the tone, and most of the speakers who addressed after him, including the prime minister, praised the leadership qualities of the president and said he was the leader of the PML. Pervaiz Elahi said it was because of the policies and strategies of the president and the prime minister that the country was able to spend billions of rupees on education and health. He said President Musharraf was more tolerant in his attitude compared to the so-called democratic leaders of the past. Without naming anyone but leaving no doubt that he was referring to the late Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, the chief minister said he had dismissed the opposition parties’ governments of Balochistan and the NWFP within six months of their installation. In comparison, he said, Gen Musharraf had been tolerating the MMA government for the past three years despite a difference of opinion. He said a strong PML had always been in the interest of the country. He recalled that when the PML got weaker a leader, an obvious reference to Mr Bhutto, got an opportunity to disintegrate the country. The nation would never forgive such a leadership, he said. He recalled the role of the Muslim League in the creation of Pakistan. He was all praise for the Sindh Assembly which was the first legislature to adopt a resolution in favour of Pakistan. Similarly, he said, Balochistan also decided to go with Pakistan. The NWFP took a decision for accession to Pakistan through a referendum. He said the PML was working well in the provinces at present. He believed that the country would make progress under the leadership of President Musharraf. A resolution moved by him lauded the services of those who had laid their lives for Pakistan.

2008: TMQ activists besiege Aaj TV offices in Islamabad Saturday, November 08, 2008 LAHORE: Activists of Tehreek-e-Minhajul Quran (TMQ) besieged Aaj TV offices in Islamabad on Friday against the alleged use of ‘indecent words’ against their chief Dr Tahirul Qadri in one of its programmes. According to the TV channel, over 150 TMQ activists besieged the TV offices to protest the use of ‘improper language’ against Qadri by Mushtaq Minhas and Nusrat Javed - hosts of the show Bolta Pakistan. They carried placards rebuking the show and shouted slogans against the hosts. They also demanded an apology from the TV channel’s administration. The channel said they continued to receive threats and indecent mobile phone text messages throughout the day. Aaj TV Executive Director Talat Hussain said the TMQ should have talked to the channel’s administration if any of its programmes had hurt its feelings instead of surrounding the building. Host Nusrat Javed said that he would not succumb to the ‘hooliganism’ of TMQ activists and knew how to deal with such ‘dramas’. daily times monitor .

 Dr Thairul Qadri Revolution via Fascism & Dual Nationality - 2

Dr Thairul Qadri Revolution via Fascism & Dual... by SalimJanMazari

2004: Musharraf's uniform a secondary issue: Altaf By Bureau Report 08 September 2004  , Sept 7: Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain has said that whether President Gen Pervez Musharraf remains in uniform or decides to doff it is a secondary issue because every government in Pakistan has sought protection of the military uniform. Speaking at the Peshawar Press Club's 'Meet the Press' programme here on Tuesday, he said the issue of uniform would be there as long as a people's government was not established in the country. Every ruler in the past had sought the help of the 'uniform' and compromised on principles, he added. He said that former prime ministers, including Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif, had formed their governments with the help of the 'uniform'. The Jamaat-i-Islami supported Gen Ziaul Haq, who also was in uniform, for 11 long years, but now JI chief Qazi Hussain Ahmed was opposing a president in uniform to hoodwink the nation. Mr Hussain demanded that the NWFP be renamed because the present name did not reflect the identity, culture and psyche of its people who had been demanding the change of name since the inception of Pakistan. He was of the opinion that if the NWFP was not renamed as Pukhtoonkhwa or Pukhtoonistan or whatever its people wanted, they (the people of the province) might resort to other means to have a name of their choice. The MQM chief said the federation of Pakistan must give equal rights to all its federating units. Use of brute force, he added, would not keep the country intact. Paying rich tribute to late Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan, he said that Bacha Khan was a genuine leader who had given a sense of freedom and independence to his people and launched a protracted but non-violent struggle against foreign rule. He said the name NWFP was a remnant of the colonial era and, therefore, must be changed. If the rulers were reluctant to rename the NWFP, they should change the names of other provinces, he added. Referring to 9/11, he said this single event had brought about profound changes in geo-politics. "Friends have become foes and foes have turned friends." In Pakistan, the rulers abandoned the Taliban and the Jihadi groups and joined hands with the United States and its other allies to protect Pakistan's interests in this part of the world. He said his party had joined the government in order to eradicate the decade-old backwardness and poverty and to steer the country out of a crisis which was posing a threat to its existence. The MQM was the only political party, Mr Hussain said, which represented the middle-class of Pakistan and it had survived many operations since its formation in 1984. He denied that the MQM had any plan for carving out a Jinnahpur out of Pakistan or that it was a separatist organization which wanted to dismember the country. He said that the forefathers of the people in the MQM had sacrificed their lives for Pakistan. "Our people are residents of the province of Sindh and this is now their only identity," he added.

2006: President will stay in uniform: Elahi Friday, March 24, 2006 LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervez Elahi told the Pakistan Day rally that Gen Musharraf would remain army chief and be elected president again. “The uniform issue is not the personal issue of the president but it is a question of Pakistan’s future. Continuity of the president’s policies is necessary for the better future and economic stability of the country,” Elahi said. staff report ---- LAHORE: In his address to the Pakistan Day rally, Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz vowed that the PML will remain united and contest the 2007 elections under the leadership of President Musharraf. Aziz faced slogans of “cheeni cheeni (sugar)” when he came to speak. “Sugar is available at utility stores at Rs 27.50 per kg. We’ll provide more items in the utility stores,” he said in response. staff report REFERENCES: President will stay in uniform: Elahi Friday, March 24, 2006 PML will be united for polls: Aziz Friday, March 24, 2006

2007: * Railways minister says govt has enough votes to elect Musharraf * Sher Afgan says Musharraf may doff uniform to seal deal with BB Staff Report LAHORE: President General Pervez Musharraf will seek re-election from the current parliament in uniform, Railways Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said on Monday. “The government has enough votes to re-elect President Musharraf from the existing assemblies,” Ahmed told a press conference at Pakistan Railways Headquarters here. He added that the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) would support the president’s re-election. He said the government does not want any major party to quit from the parliament during the presidential elections, but added that if the opposition does opt to resign, “one of the major political parties will not do so”. Asked about the PPP’s reservations regarding the president’s uniform, he said “All matters are settled, and the uniform is no big problem. However, the president has a programme to doff it and will himself take the decision in this regard according to the Constitution.” About the recent meeting between Gen Musharraf and PPP Chairwoman Benazir Bhutto, the minister said that it was the start of a final round of negotiations between the government and PPP. “It was not the first meeting between Benazir Bhutto and President Musharraf. The semi-final of the negotiations was also played at the same place as the final round of negotiations,” he added. Ahmed said August would be a month of key political decisions, while Pakistab;s emerging political scenario would be decided in the period between August 15 and September 15. The presidential elections would be held between September 10 and October 10, before the general elections. He said politician were trying to seek the help of the Supreme Court, so a free judiciary and strong media had an “important role” in the current situation. Agencies add: Gen Musharraf may hang up his army uniform to pave the way for a pact with Bhutto, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Sher Afgan Niazi said on Monday. Musharraf and Bhutto held secret talks in Abu Dhabi on Friday on a pre-election power-sharing deal, but reached no agreement on two key issues, Niazi told AFP. The sticking points were the issue of Musharraf’s dual role as president and head of the army and a bar that prevents Bhutto having a third term as premier, he said. “The two met in Abu Dhabi on Friday to hammer out a political understanding so that moderate forces can join hands to defeat extremists in the coming general elections,” Niazi said. Niazi said he believed that Musharraf “would be willing to shed his uniform if he has the PPP and the ruling Pakistan Muslim League behind him”. He said that if the two agreed on a deal, the constitution could be amended to allow prime ministers to serve a third term. “An alliance between Bhutto and Musharraf is a necessity in the prevailing situation, it is also the desire of the international community, particularly the United States and Britain,” Niazi said. Speaking to a private television channel, Niazi said that the Constitution did not need to be amended to allow the president’s re-election in uniform, APP reported. The minister said that 17th amendment to the Constitution removed all restrictions on the president, including on his military uniform, until November 15, 2007. Since the presidential election is to be held between September 15 and October 16, Gen Musharraf can contest it in his uniform, he said. But if the election is delayed beyond November, the situation will be different, he added. REFERENCE: Present assemblies will elect president in uniform: Rashid Tuesday, July 31, 2007
