Pakistan Awami Tehreek’s leader, Dr. Tahirul Qadri arrived in Pakistan and landed at Lahore Airport today.
Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) diverted the Emirates Airline’s flight EK-612 carrying Dr Qadri to Lahore instead of Islamabad. CAA has also told that other passengers in the flight will be taken to Islamabad after Dr. Qadri is escorted to the airport. After negotiations and offer from Governor Punjab Ch. Muhammad Sarwar, Dr. Qadri has agreed to leave airport and travel with him so that he feels secure.
He has arrived in the country to lead an anti-government alliance with PML-Q and other political allies.
