Asif Zardari greets Muslims on the eve of Eidul Fitr

 

Islamabad June 24, 2017: Greeting the Muslims throughout the world on the eve of Eidul Fitr former President Asif Ali Zardari has urged them to “pursue the spirit of Ramazan even beyond the formal end of the holy month and pursuing the values of tolerance and humility on the one hand and abstention from evil thought, evil speech and evil deeds on the other”.

The evil of this age is intolerance and extremism and the forcing down upon others of one’s peculiar religious values and interpretations, he said adding, “together we must fight this evil by saying NO to all self styled custodians of morality and interpreters of religious thoughts and values”.

On this Eid the Muslims should also give a serious thought to the complex challenges to their unity. They need to work together and extricate themselves from dangerous precipice, the former President said.

On this occasion let us also remember the poor and the needy and all those who have laid down their lives for the sake of peace in the country and fighting religious fanaticism.

“I wish to felicitate the Muslims throughout the world in general and of Pakistan in particular on the eve of Eid ul Fitr”.

The end of the month of fasting should not mark an end of the pursuit of the values of tolerance and humility and shunning evil ordained in particular during the holy month, he said adding “instead it should be an occasion to pledge to abide by these values throughout the year”.

“Evil has reared its ugly head in different forms and shapes at different times in history. During our time it has reared its head in the form of religious bigotry and exploitation of the people in the name of religion”, the PPP Chairman said.

“We need to stand together in fighting to the finish the religious extremists who force upon people their bigoted interpretations of religious thought; we also need to fight together those who exploit religion for their own ends”.

Zardari slams cover up of incident of running over of traffic warden in Quetta

Calls for investigation and dispelling impression of cover up

Islamabad June 24, 2017: Former President Asif Zardari has taken
serious note of the incident in Quetta the other day of a speeding car
running over a traffic warden on duty and called for thorough
investigations to allay suspicions of cover up.

Spokesperson Senator Farhatullah Babar said that the former President
Asif Zardari who is in London expressed profound grief and shock over
the death of  Sub Inspector Haji Attaullah Dashti in the incident and
the questionable manner in which the case was dealt with.

Details of the case emerged days later after the social media ran its
CCTV footage showing a madly driven car seeming to deliberately run
over a police warden. Police however registered a case of traffic
accident against unidentified persons,he said.

“There is a serious inconsistency between the gravity of the incident
on the one hand and investigations and case registration on the other
that smacks of a deliberate cover up”, Zardari said.

The former President said that the police warden was run over on
Tuesday and CCTV footage was available yet it was not pursued in
normal course and no explanations offered also raised questions that
needed answers.

The fact that the politically influential owner of the car initially
chose to remain silent and spoke up only after the footage went viral
on social media further lent credence to suspicions of political
pressure to hush up the incident, he said.

Zardari said that any attempt at cover up would strengthen the
perception that the relationship between citizen and the state was
government more by social status than by law besides demoralizing the
police force.

Any cover up will be a travesty of justice that cannot and must not be
permitted nor condoned, he said.

Zardari also prayed for the soul of late Haji Attaullah Dashti and
expressed profound condolences to the bereaved family members. He also
asked for compensation and a civil award to late Traffic Warden Haji
Dashti.
