PESHAWAR, October 22: The chief of Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT), Dr. Tahirul Qadri, has announced end to his party’s demonstration in the federal capital Islamabad and said to extend the protests all over the country.

Addressing party workers last night, Dr Tahirul Qadri said the party had taken a unanimous decision to end the ongoing demonstration that continued for two months in the federal capital. He said the party protests would be extended to the whole country.

He added that the next demonstration would be staged in Abbottabad on 23 and 24 October and announced to put off the protests up to a month due to Muharramul Haraam.

He asked the party supporters to return back to their homes. “Though the objectives of the party’s demonstration have not been achieved, people got enough idea of standing up for their rights,” stated the PAT chief.

Dr Tahirul Qadri started his party’s protest on 14 August against the termination of current government and a tragic happening that took place at Model Town in Lahore.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Mr Imran Khan has declared to continue his party’s demonstration in Islamabad. Mr Khan has been calling for re-election in the country and asking the Prime Minister, Mr Nawaz Sharif, to resign.
