KARACHI, Nov 9: Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party has paid glowing tributes to the great poet, thinker and philosopher Allama Mohammad Iqbal on his 139th birthday and urged the nation to follow the ideals of one of the greatest poet of history in the region to make our country free from hatred, extremism and terrorism.
In his message on the 139th birthday, the PPP Chairman said that philosophers and poets like Allama Iqbal are born once in centuries but they leave behind the wisdom and sagacity for several generations to seek guidance and light from.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari stated that his Party is the true torch-bearer of the ideology of Allama Iqbal and Founder of the Nation Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah. “Our Party and the country have lost our most beloved leaders and elected Prime Ministers Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and thousands of their followers in the struggle for an egalitarian and invincible Pakistan our founding fathers had imagined and envisioned,” he added.
He said that PPP’s four main demands for democratic accountability of corruption, terrorism, economic injustice, and foreign policy are in fact in line with the philosophy of Allama Iqbal because partial accountabilities and political victimisations in the name of accountabilities have created hatred and gulf between the provinces and their people.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari further stressed that the best way to pay tributes to Allama Iqbal is to pursue his ideology and thought-provoking ideals to make our country as model Muslim democratic country based on equality, justice and fair-play.
