Intrusion of Qadri phobia in Pakistan
Tahir-ul-Qadri’s long march to protest corruption, and revolutionise the democratic process does not seem to bear any weight. His emergence, out of the blue, in Pakistan’s political arena is creating doubts about his intention, principal support and fund suppliers. He failed to prove what he has achieved by the long march and sit-in camping near the Parliament for four days.
His long march was totally redundant and had served no purpose except to question the credibility of those political parties who have supported him as a doctrine of change, deemed necessary in Pakistan.
I fail to understand, what right he had to declare that the parliament and an elected government do not exist.
Armed forces may have a soft corner to support his move due to his backing of the military coup in 1999. But critics have charged that the protests were a ploy of the armed forces to achieve their objectives to delay the election.
