KARACHI, January 03: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has paid glowing tributes to Shaheed Salman Taseer on his 5th martyrdom anniversary being observed on Wednesday.
“Brave Shaheed Salman Taseer proved that this country is for all and protection of weak and vulnerable people, including the minorities is a sacred duty of every nationalist Pakistani who follows the ideology of the country’s founder fathers,” PPP Chairman stated in his message on the occasion.
He pointed out that Shaheed Salman Taseer stood like rock against the misuse of laws meant to protect the sanctity of every religion by bigots and hypocrite elements bent upon to settle their personal scores against weaker opponents.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said bigotry and extremism were breeding terrorism and people of Pakistan should get rid of these maladies and establish a truly egalitarian Muslim majority society standing tall as a Model nation in the Islamic as well as the modern world.
He said that certain elements want to hold people hostage the people at gun-point by exploiting certain laws but they don’t know that in the presence of PPP and the followers like Shaheed Salman Taseer and others their nefarious designs won’t succeed in Pakistan.
