Following Saulat Mirza’s shocking revelations, the former governor of Punjab and senior Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf leader Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar has asked for an investigation into the matter.
He was speaking at the annual meeting of Anjuman Arain Sindh, where he expressed concern over the justice system’s failure and expressed his belief that all political parties should do away with their militant affiliations and groups.
Mr. Sarwar also highlighted the need for reform in the country’s criminal justice system and solutions for problems like unemployment and corruption which foster criminal elements in the society.
According to him Pakistan has abundant talent but what is missing are good leadership and governance. He also cited Quaid-i-Azam’s vision of the country where rule of law prevailed and the society was tolerant.
The former Punjab governor also lauded the efforts of the Arain community, which according to him has done greatly in various fields for the nation’s progress.
Mr. Sarwar also reiterated the need for political parties to disband their armed wings and stated that criminals, even if they are part of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf, should be dealt with in accordance with the law.
Saulat Mirza, who made startling confessions via a video footage, implicated several high profile members of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement and claimed to have carried out criminal acts on the orders of the party’s leader.
