Pakistan's ousted Sharif vows to remain active in politics

Ruling was designed for the sole purpose of disqualification claims the ousted premier

The speech marks the first time Sharif has publicly commented on the court's ruling and comes as the former prime minister leads a defiant procession from Islamabad to his party's stronghold in the eastern city of Lahore.

Sources in the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party said that some of the senior party leaders were concerned about the security of Sharif.

Meanwhile, in another challenge to the ruling Pakistan Muslim League party, firebrand opposition cleric Tahir-ul-Qadri returned home after mostly living overseas amid pending court-cases against him in Pakistan.

Qadri, the fiery cleric, said Tuesday that he will launch a new anti-government campaign and praised the Supreme Court for disqualifying Sharif.

Sharif vowed to push ahead with the rally, which is expected to take roughly two days to reach his hometown of Lahore along Pakistan's historic Grand Trunk Road, despite security concerns.
