    Will head to PM house if supporters harmed: Dr Qadri

    LONDON/RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Dr Tahirul Qadri on Sunday said that if his supporters are harmed upon his arrival in Pakistan, then Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif would be held responsible and the party would hold protests outside the Prime Minister house in Islamabad.

    Addressing the media from the passenger seat of an SUV outside Heathrow airport in London, where a large number of PAT supporters including women had gathered to bid farewell to their party chief, Dr Qadri claimed that PAT workers and activist were being arrested and tortured.

    Criticising the Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) government, he said, "I have even witnessed the Bhutto era but have never seen such oppression by a government."

    "People carrying loudspeakers were arrested, Is this what you call politics and democracy? Take me instead of my workers," he added.
