PADF Repudiates Dr Tahirul Qadri’s Politics
By Abdus Sattar Ghazali

The Pakistan American Democratic Forum (PADF) has repudiated Dr Qadri’s politics of deception, intimidation and blackmail.

“Allama Qadri does not speak for us”, said Dr Agha Saeed, founder of the PADF, a grassroots organization founded in 1982 in support of the Movement for Restoration of Democracy (MRD).

He said that Dr Qadri has not taken any stand on Muslim/Pakistani issues. Dr. Agha Saeed denounced Dr. Qadri’s outrageous remarks in the Supreme Court where he failed to establish his bona fides due to his nationality of Canada where he lives now.

He pointed out that Dr. Qadri does not speak on behalf of millions of overseas Pakistanis since he has a very limited personal agenda.

Dr. Agha Saeed called on fellow Pakistani-Americans to actively support the Supreme Court in establishing rule of law and facilitating rule-based institution-building.
