KARACHI – Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairperson Bilawal Bhutto on Monday pays tribute to Shaheed Salman Taseer.
In his message of tributes on the 5th martyrdom day anniversary of former Punjab Governor, PPP Chairman said from the torture cells of Lahore Fort to his martyred Shaheed Salman Taseer emerged as a monumental character in the history that lived, struggled and embraced death like a true hero of the nation, democracy and human rights.
Bilawal pointed out that Shaheed Salman Taseer followed the path of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and stood like a rock against the forces of darkness that were bent upon to drag the country to the stone-age.
He said Taseer sacrificed his life for the protection of weak and marginalised people against exploitation and misuse of religious laws. Bilawal said the PPP will always stand against misuse of religion-based laws and asked authorities to take up such misuses under the National Action Plan. He also said that Pakistan will never forget Taseer’ Shahadat.
