Bilawal announces rally on Oct 16


Karachi—Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has announced a rally on October 16 to complete his slain mother’s unfinished rally in 2007 when her motorcade was attacked by a powerful bomb.
Bilawal, in a video message, said that the ‘Salam-e-Shuhada’ procession would be taken out from his residence Bilawal House in Clifton, to Karsaz on Shahrah-e-Faisal at 10 AM on Sunday.
He said that the Islamic month of Muharram reminds us of the immortal sacrifices of Imam Hussain (RA) who embraced martyrdom but upheld the sanctity of Islam.
“Muharram reminds us of the sacrifices at Karbala. It reminds of Bibi Zainab (RA) whose struggle and sacrifices are a role model for the world,” he said.
He said that the political struggle of the PPP had seen various martyrs including Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Shahnawaz Bhutto, Murtaza Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto, and hundreds of political workers.
“The political struggle of the PPP has been against injustice, and for the sake of democracy,” said Bilawal. He called the attack on 18th October 2007 as the worst day in the political history of Pakistan, and called on people to join him to pay tribute to them.—SABAH
