Former President of Pakistan and President Pakistan People’s Party Parliamentarians, Asif Ali Zardari on the birth anniversary of the founding chairman of Pakistan People’s Party, Quaid-e-Awam Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto has felicitated the Jiyalas and supporters of the Party all around the globe.
President Zardari said that even after the judicial killing 43 years ago, the Quaid-e-Awam is still ruling over the hearts of millions of people. He said that the graves of the murderers of the people’s leader, Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and those who participated in his assassination conspiracy are deserted.
President Zardari said that Quaid-e-Awam was a gift bestowed upon a people that had been oppressed and exploited for a long time. Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was a charismatic leader who in only a period of three years lit the candle of public consciousness due to which the fortresses of the oppressors that exploited the people crumbled. Quaid-e-Awam taught the people how to think, speak and live with dignity. Asif Ali Zardari said that Quaid-e-Awam also guided the Muslim world. He was unmatched at the negotiation table and garnered admiration from people all over the world.
In a short period of five years, not only did Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto erase all traces of the destruction left by the 1971 war but also built a new and better Pakistan.
Asif Ali Zardari said that the Quaid-e-Awam clashed with the powerful forces of the world for Pakistan’s nuclear capability. He wished to create a Pakistan that was not only a force to be reckoned with, but also a self-sufficient country with vast medical and engineering capabilities based on modern, scientific research. Asif Ali Zardari said that Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto gave every citizen the right to have a passport so they could make their country proud in any corner of the world.
President Zardari said that when Pakistan was setting the milestones of unprecedented development, those greedy for power occupied their country for the most despicable purposes. He said that some selfish entities made a mockery out of Pakistan for the sake of power.
Asif Ali Zardari said that on this day, we renew our pledge to work tirelessly for Pakistan so that it regains its dignified place in the world. We will build the country for which Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto struggled throughout her life. President Zardari said that our determination is invincible. Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto guaranteed the survival and security of the country by sacrificing her life for it. We will protect the country till our last breath.
Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto was the link between the four provinces of her father’s Pakistan. Now, Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has assumed that role and will not only protect his grandfather’s country but also ensure that Pakistan is included in the ranks of the developed countries of the world.
