Ishaq Dar cautions Qadri, says writing on currency note is illegal

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The federal minister for finance Ishaq Dar has cautioned the Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Chief Tahirul Qadri against misleading people by asking them to write slogans on currency notes.

In a statement, the finance minister said that writing on currency notes is illegal and would render the notes invalid.

Dar said that such notes would neither be acceptable as legal tender by the business community for trading of goods and commodities nor by the banks.

The finance minister said that Tahirul Qadri has already caused a huge loss to the national economy and national interest.

Earlier on Sunday, Dr Tahirul Qadri had launched a movement by writing “go Nawaz go” on currency notes and urged the masses to follow him.

“I ask 180 million people of Pakistan to launch this movement … write go Nawaz go on every currency note,” he said while addressing participants of his party’s ‘Inquilab sit-in’ in Islamabad.

Traders reject Qadri’s call for inscribing slogans on currency notes

The business community has also rejected the unlawful call by the PAT leader to inscribe slogans on currency notes.

The Chairman of the All Karachi Tajir Ittihad Atiq Mir said that people holding sit-ins do not realize country’s problems and are affecting national economy.

The Pak Alliance Market Association Jama Cloth President Tanvir Bari lamented that the sit-ins in the federal capital have badly affected business activities in the country.

The All Karachi Anjuman-e-Tajiran President Rafiq Jadoon said that no one would pay heed to Qadri’s call for writing slogans on notes.
