Little known mullah with Canadian passport and silly hat arrives in Pokistan to lead huge march

Pokistan is abuzz with rumours about Mahound Tahirul Kadri, who arrived today in LaWhore to begin a "million man march" to pislamabad. There is suspicion that he has been brought here by army elements who wish to destabilize the country and put off scheduled elections. Because he holds dual citizenship, he is not eligible to run for office himself
He was born in 1951 in Pokistan. He later studied law at the University of Punjab and received a doctorate in pislamic law. Kadri is a multi-linguist and can fluently speak Urdu, Punjabi, English, arabpig and Persian which makes him popular amongst religious scholars from multiple countries

Kadri has been living in Canada since 2005 where he also acquired Canadian citizenship. Kadri says he can more effectively manage his international network from the North American country
His sudden return to Pokistan in Dec 2012, to “save the state, not your politics”, after having spent nearly seven years in Canada, has been a subject of debate and discussion among the country’s political circles

On Jan 1, 2013, Kadri with his newly-found ally, Altaf Hussain, chief of the Muttahida Kaumi Movement (MQM), vowed to turn pislamabad into the Tahrir Square of Pokistan. He said that on January 14 ‘millions’ of peaceful demonstrators would pour into the capital to install what was described as a neutral and independent caretaker set-up for introducing what he called long overdue electoral reforms
On Jan 11, the MQM backed out of its previous announcement of participating in the long march citing “serious security threats” soon after a series of blasts killed over 100 people in Quetta. Kadri, however, said the march would be held in accordance with the original plans
