Islamabad: Pakistan’s Federal Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira on Monday said that demands of Tehrik-i-Minhajul Quran (TMQ) chief Allama Dr Tahirul Qadri are unconstitutional, DawnNews reported.
Speaking to a press conference, Kaira said that since his arrival in the country, Qadri keeps on changing his demands and there were reports that he was giving new charter of demands, which is beyond comprehension.
“It seems Dr Tahirul Qadri wants to become head of the interim setup.”
“Gone are the days when a foreigner was appointed as prime minister of the country, casting far-reaching implications on the future of the country,” he said.
Kaira said that not a single political party was supporting Tahirul Qadri’s march because his demands were not within ambit of the constitution.
The minister, by giving references from legal and constitutional documents, said the demand of including military and judiciary in consultation process of forming the caretaker setup is unconstitutional.
Similarly, the procedure of dissolving the election commission is given in the constitution.
