VIDEO: The self-contradictions of Dr Tahirul Qadri
LAHORE - For the past few years the chairman of Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) and founder of Minhajul Quran, Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri has emerged as the most vocal opponent of the Sharif brothers, mostly criticising the PML-N leaders for their 'undemocratic past'.

More recently, during a press conference following an ‘All Parties Conference’ (APC) over Model Town issue on Saturday, the Canada-based cleric lambasted ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif for introducing horse trading and a culture of bribery in politics.

He even warned them of strong protests in the wake of 2014 killings of his party (PAT) workers in Model Town.

But fingers are also being raised at the 66-year-old preacher’s past who maintained a very close relation with the Sharif family during the first tenure of Nawaz-Shehbaz.

Here we have a video of Dr Tahirul Qadri from two different phases - having a gap of more than two decades - making statements about his affiliation with the Sharif brothers.

One part relates to his last protest when he marched on the federal capital with his diehard supporters and staged a sit-in for just over two months. The other one takes us back to the '90s when the head of Idara Minhajul Quran used to lead prayers at Model Town mosque built by the Sharif family.
