ISLAMABAD, October 5: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that India was trying to deceive the international community and painting a seven-decade long indigenous freedom movement in Occupied Kashmir into a terrorist movement.
“We can foil such designs of Indian government only through unity hence entire nation and all the political parties should stand united and one-voice against the cruel atrocities against people of Held Kashmir,” PPP Chairman stated while addressing a Joint Parliamentary Party meeting of the PPP Senators and MNAs at Islamabad today.
He said the menace of terrorism has bruised our country and the people to horrific level as the innocent people are being killed mercilessly by the terrorists some of whom are yet to be touched by under the National Action Plan (NAP) with crushing spirit. “Let the Pakistani nation and its armed forces should take on the breeding farms and facilitation centers of terrorism. We have to condemn terrorism in all its forms and manifestation as we cannot keep silence on the way our Shia sisters were killed in Quetta yesterday,” he added.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the monster of terrorism targeted PPP since the day it was out of its egg and we lost our leadership Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and thousands of our workers, fellow citizens and soldiers. Terrorism only managed our ‘defeat’ in 2013 general elections but it caused massive harm to the standing of our country in the international polity, he further stated.
PPP Chairman said that NAP should be more activated against terrorism and all the points of Plan should be implemented, warning the Nawaz Sharif government to stop witch-hunt against the opponents through using different state tools.
He also called upon the international community to pressurize Indian government to stop belligerence posture and allow the people of Held Kashmir to exercise their right to self-determination for restoration of permanent peace in the region.
