After getting the copy of the report, PAT leader Khurram Nawaz Gandapur said that his party was firm on its demand for the resignation of Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Law Minister Rana Sanaullah.

"We will not tolerate Shehbaz Sharif anymore", he said in a joint press conference with Tahirul Qadri, warning to hit the roads for protests against the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).

"Enough is enough. Shahbaz has to resign and appear before the court", Zardari said.

On the other hand, Tahirul Qadri stated that murderers and those who planned the massacre have been exposed in the Justice Baqir Najfi commission report.

Long before nobody could have imagined the height of police brutality in the heart of Punjab's capital city, when hundreds of cops opened live fire on PAT protesters near Minhajul Quran Secretariat, Dr. Qadri took a huge rally of thousands of his ultra-devoted followers towards Islamabad.

According to sources, the PPP co-chairman had a telephonic conversation with the PAT chief on Wednesday night and assured Qadri of extending his support. "Now we will fight and take to the streets with him [Tahirul Qadri]".

However, people in Pakistan were surprised to see today's development - an alliance between Dr. Qadri and Asif Zardari - as the cleric is widely known for his past statements against the PPP leader.

Qadri said the "real report" needs to be accessed and compared with the one released by the government. He claimed that the report has enough content to hold Shehbaz Sharif and Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah responsible for the innocent lives.

While speaking on a private news channel on Thursday, Sanaullah said if the chief minister had to resign he would have done so around four years ago as "these people" make such demands every other morning.
