INP adds: The 18th day of October is an important day in our national calendar as on this day in 2007 battle lines were drawn between democracy and pluralism on the one hand and religious bigotry on the other. Those battle lines have only sharpened during the past nine years and beckon us to continue the fight till final victory. This has been stated by former President Asif Ali Zardari in a message on the 9th anniversary of Karsaz tragedy.
He said nine years ago Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto returned to Pakistan from exile, defying all odds and warnings, because she was sensed that Pakistan was faced with existential threat from the bigots and religious fanatics on the one hand and dictatorship on the other.
However the enemies of democracy and Pakistan brutally attacked her caravan. Nearly two hundred Party workers and democrats embraced martyrdom in the cause of democracy.
Asif Zardari reiterated to fulfill the mission of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto to uphold democracy and defeat militants.—INP
