KARACHI: Extremism and terrorism are two major diseases ailing the whole country and its society. Both these diseases have to be completely routed out to put Pakistan on a real path to peace, progress and prosperity. As a nation, we have to protect and promote our core values, which are being eroded by the elements chaos and darkness to shatter the mission of the founding fathers.
This was stated by Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Monday in his message on the occasion of Independence Day of Pakistan. The PPP chairman reiterated that vision of Quaid-e-Azam was pursued by Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto who struggled during their whole life for an egalitarian and democratic Pakistan eventually laying down their lives for their principles and ideals.
He also extended greetings to the fellow Pakistanis on the Independence Day and urged the nation to gear up for regaining Pakistan, our founder Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah had dreamt of. He further said that only a democratic order and constitutionalism could strengthen the nation and parliamentary supremacy shall be respected as people’s voice. The PPP chairman said that his Party was struggling for an egalitarian Pakistan to be a role-model Muslim democratic nation on the world map and a source of inspiration for Muslims around the globe.
Bilawal pledged that the PPP was bound by the commitment of its past leadership for working towards the interest of downtrodden people and bring equal opportunities for all the segments of society so that fruits of independence should not remain limited to few corridors.
