Addressing a press conference in London, PAT Chairman Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri has said that the hands of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif are bloodied with the killings of innocent people in Model Town. He said that the Prime Minister is directly involved in the Model Town carnage, asking with what face will he plead the case of the Kashmiris at the UN? He said that if the country did not earn a bad name with the Panama leaks, how will the demand for justice in the Model Town case bring it into disrepute?
