Tahir ul Qadri is Back in Lahore
LAHORE: Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri, chief Pakistan Awami Tehreek, arrived in Lahore on Monday after a span of seven months before he left amid the movement launched by him against the government, media reported.
Dr. Qadri arrived at Lahore’s Allama Iqbal International airport at 8:00am where he was received and felicitated by a large number of his party workers and later escorted under high security to his residence in Model Town.
The PAT chief left London on Sunday at 2pm and stayed in Dubai for a few hours before leaving for Pakistan.
PAT Supreme Council chairman Hassan Mohiyuddinn Qadri on Sunday announced that Qadri will be arriving in 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.
Qadri, who led his followers to lay siege to the parliament last August, said that he wanted his 900-page curriculum, containing theological and ideological arguments to undermine extremists, to be taught not just at mosques and Islamic institutions, but also at schools across Britain.
