LAHORE Minhaj-ul-Quran Chief Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri has stressed upon the students and youth to come forward and play the same role which they did during the Pakistan Movement. Addressing huge gathering of students and youth from Canada through video conferencing on Saturday, he said that political and religious parties were not enemy of this country, rather it was corrupt political and electoral system, which has made people hostage and kept them tied to strings of corruption and nepotism. Mustafvi Students Movement organised Student Awareness Congregation at Nasir Bagh. Thousands of students participated in the Congregation. They were carrying party flags, pictures of Tahir-ul-Qadri and placards and banners inscribed with writings against the present electoral system, price hike, corruption, unemployment and energy crisis. Tahir-ul-Qadri said that the system kept people robbed of their due rights and the only way to change their destiny was to rebel against the corrupt electoral system. Warning the ruling elite of their indifference and public anger, he said that he had only given a call to students to create awareness among their ranks. Time, he said, was not far when he would invite them to historic Minar-e-Pakistan. He said that he would come to Pakistan to lead the peoples revolution once the time for this comes. He said that it was both beyond the establishment and current political system to bring about change as their interests clashed with the public interests. He said that real change would come about when people would rise against the corrupt system and become master of their own destiny. He said that the Supreme Court gave a number of verdicts but those had not been implemented by the executive. He also reminded people of the time when the highest judicial forum of the country was attacked by the so-called democrats. He said that those who spent millions of rupees to become members of Parliament would never work for the wellbeing of people. Their sole concern was to amass wealth to stay afloat in power corridors. He said that certain families had their dominance on power. He said that those elected under the present corrupt electoral system had given people nothing but unemployment, starvation and suicides. Tahir-ul-Qadri said that the country lacked coherent foreign and domestic policies representing the aspirations of the people. He said that the two-party system succeeded in West because of strong check and balance. He said that Election Commission of Pakistan had lacks capacity, independence and will to hold free and fair elections. He said that the voters did not enjoy any respect and votes were only political weapons meant to elect the so-called winning horses. He said that the manifestos and culture of political parties lacked democratic spirit. He said that the Parliament was and has been a rubber stamp unable to play any role in the national affairs. He said that the country was turned into a colony of the foreign powers by the vested interests.
