Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said the role and contribution of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto
Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said the role and contribution of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto after the founder of Pakistan Muhammad Ali Jinnah is vast and exemplary and hence despite that his martyrdom dates back to forty years, he is alive in hearts and minds of the masses. Even the anger of the masses on his cold blooded judicial assassination is as same and high as it was on his day of martyrdom.
In his message on 40th Yaum-e Shahadat of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, the first elected Prime Minister of Pakistan, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari while paying very rich tribute to him said that at one hand the founder of Pakistan changed the course of the history while at the other the Quaid-e-Awam paved a way forward for democratic revolution and created immense awareness for the democracy and its blessings due to which the Chauvinist, anti-democracy and radical forces would always find it difficult to impose their anti-democratic agenda or rule over the country. Besides, there are countless voices for the democracy and rule of the people despite that they are victimized and vandilised time and again.
He said that Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s immense contributions on the forefront of politics, diplomatic, economic and international affairs are praiseworthy and thought-provoking.
The PPP Chairman said that since Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto always believed in consensus hence he gave a unanimously approved Constitution of 1973, which was indeed, a manifest of real consensus. The motive behind his gigantic efforts for Pakistan-China friendship was laid in that very characteristic of his inspiring personality. Sino-Pakistan relations have turned into a practical aspect of one body and two souls. As well, the First Islamic Summit had opened venues for Pakistan for leading the entire Muslim Ummah.
He said that Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto had at one hand made country’s defense invincible while at the other he introduced people-friendly policies with which the working classes benefitted a lot and thus, millions of farmers and growers that were deprived of their land attained land, people got jobs and millions of Pakistani workers had flooded the gulf countries with which Pakistan earned tremendous foreign exchange and the people thus acquired prosperity. One can easily imagine the level of prosperity from just one point and that was the Karachi international Airport, the busiest one in Asia in his time.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that even today, we are waiting to see the justice is dispensed because Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was judicially assassinated. A reference that was signed by the former President Asif Ali Zardari is still being treated with slackness in corridors of the country’s apex court and despite repeated reminders and demands; the justice is still not yet done.
He said that the law of necessity and judicial disparity is the mother of injustice.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the present situation that has prevailed over the country calls for the supremacy of the Parliament and efforts are required to take the respect of law and the constitution ahead because it is all that revolves around the ideology of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.
