Islamabad - Pakistan Awami Tehreek Chief Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri has said that PAT sit-in in front of Parliament House is not going to an end and all rumours in this regard are wrong.

Dr Qadri, who had been absent from the city for the last five days, returned to Islamabad on Friday and addressed his followers and media persons at his party office. He said that he was not going to sell the blood of martyrs of Lahore and Islamabad. “The killers will be hanged for their crime and no compensation will be accepted against the blood of the martyrs,” he added. Only blood against blood will be accepted. He rejected the impression that any aggrieved had taken money as compensation.

Dr Qadri congratulated the marchers for staging more than 60 days long continuous sit-in. He said that his rallies in Faisalabad, Jhang and Chiniot had frustrated the rulers and they were worried about their future.

Earlier, the PAT chief in a statement said that future of the sit-in would be decided after the Lahore rally scheduled for October 19. Qadri will leave for Lahore rally from the sit-in and will return after addressing the rally in the provincial capital.
