LHC verdict to make public Model Town report lauded
KAMALIA – Awaam League Chairman Riaz Fatyana termed the Lahore High Court’s (LHC) verdict to divulge the report of Justice Baqir Najfi concerning Model Town incident a victory of justice.
He expressed these views while addressing various corner meetings here the other day. He stated that Model Town incident was the gravest tragedy in the history of Pakistan in which the people who were exercising their right to protest were shot en masse. “The incident tarnished the country’s image globally. The Punjab government will have to bring all those responsible for the incident to the court,” he said. He added if the culprits are treated leniently, it would be a great injustice to the grieving families of those who had been slain in Model Town incident. He criticised Nawaz Sharif for ‘declaring a war’ against the state institutions. He said the rulers have nothing to do with public welfare, adding their sole purpose is get wealthier. All the corrupt politicians would be thrown beyond the political scenario in the next general election.
