Musharraf declares 'Million Man' Qadri's long march a 'success'

Islamabad, Jan. 16 (ANI): Former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf has declared the long 'Million March' led by Minhajul Quran International (MQI) chief, Dr Tahirul Qadri, a success.

Musharraf said he had been supporting them from the beginning, reports The Dawn.

Qadri, who played a role in backing a military coup in 1999, has threatened to remain camped out near the federal parliament with thousands of supporters until his demands for the resignation of the government are met.

Qadri returned to Pakistan from Canada less than a month ago to lead a call for electoral reforms to bar "corrupt politicians" from office, which has made him an instant hit among several Pakistanis disillusioned with the state. (ANI)
