Model Town tragedy is a national issue: PML


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League (PML) President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain on Wednesday has said that Model Town tragedy is not just an issue of one party but the entire nation.

He said this while talking on the telephone with Pakistan Awami Tehrik (PAT) chief Dr Tahirul Qadri. Contact was established between the two leaders after Lahore High Court full bench had ordered making Justice Baqir Najafi report about the massacre in Model Town public.

The former prime minister reiterated full support to Dr regarding the tragedy, saying that Justice Baqir Najafi report being made public was a welcome step, as inheritors of those who were killed in Model Town tragedy and the injured ones are still waiting for justice even today. “Our party, PML, is fully supporting them on this issue right from the first day and is raising voice on every forum against the murder of unarmed people, including women, and will continue extending full support in this regard in future as well,” he said.

Ch Shujaat was hopeful of oppressed of this tragedy getting justice in this world. “All those involved in the murder of innocents will surely be punished irrespective of their status, so that nobody dares to commit such heinous act in future,” he stated.
