Islamabad, Nov 20: Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Tahirul Qadri returned to the country on Thursday.
He arrived at the Allama Iqbal International Airport in Lahore where a large number of PAT workers and his followers gathered to welcome the firebrand cleric, Geo TV reported.
On Aug 14, Qadri had led a long march from Lahore to Islamabad and camped in the heart of Islamabad for over two months, demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
Later he embarked on a foreign trip which stirred up a debate about underhand deals which the cleric categorically rejected, the report said.
He, however, conceded that his sit-in had failed to unseat the prime minister.
