Punjab govt decides to arrest QadriThe government of Punjab has decided to arrest Pakistan Awami Tehreek’s (PAT) Dr Tahirul Qadr immediately.

“Chief Minister Punjab, Mian Shahbaz Sharif has undersigned an order to this effect on the request of Home Department”
Sources further said that Dr Qadri faces the charges of treason, terrorism, incitement of violence against the state, etc.

It was also revealed that an in-principle decision to take PAT’s firebrand under custody had been taken days earlier.

“The provincial authorities were only waiting until they have built a strong case against Dr Qadri and today’s violent clashes between PAT workers and riot police served that purpose very well”.

Furthermore the government is also mulling slapping a traveling ban on Dr Qadri by putting his name on the Exit Control List (ECL).
