ISLAMABAD/KARACHI, January 4: Former Prime Minister Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto stands as the tallest icon and pioneer of struggle for democracy and equal rights in the country, said Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari paying a glowing tribute.
In his message on the eve of 93rd birthday anniversary of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, the PPP Chairman said that Shaheed Bhutto picked up the shattered pieces of Pakistan following Dhakka fall and inspired a politically demoralised population by rejuvenating the dream of the founders of the nation. “Through his political wisdom and sagacity, Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto not only had 90,000 Prisoners of War (PoWs) freed and thousands of square kilometers occupied by the enemy vacated, he also laid foundations of nuclear power to safeguard the country from repetition of such debacles in future,” he added.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that no patriotic Pakistani can forget the plans and efforts to strengthen the economy of the country launching macro and micro level industrialisations, education institutions, a unanimous Constitution, lifting up the poor and political empowerment of every segment of the society. “What he did in a half century life for the country is unmatched in the post-Quaid-e-Azam Pakistan for which he was murdered through judiciary by the enemies of the country and its democratic order,” he added.
He reiterated that PPP would follow the foot-steps of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and carry forward their struggle till their mission if achieved despite threats, hurdles, victimisations and highhandedness by the remnants of Dictator Zia and their henchmen.
