ISLAMABAD: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and former president Asif Ali Zardari on Friday felicitated the nation on the eve of 78th anniversary of Pakistan Day and stressed for the revival of the spirit our founders displayed on this day in 1940.
In his message on the eve of Pakistan Resolution Day, the PPP chairman said that his party was true torchbearer of the ideology of Pakistan.
“The PPP continues the struggle for a peaceful, prosperous and progressive Pakistan as envisioned by our founder Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah,” he added.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that founder of PPP Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and former prime minister Benazir Bhutto fought and eventually laid down their lives in their struggle for achieving the goals, missions and dreams of the founding fathers.
He said that Pakistan belonged to every citizen, hence every individual had a responsibility to play his/her role to make an egalitarian and democratic country.
The PPP chairman pledged that his party would continue its struggle as per the vision of founders of the country and the party with same vigor and zeal.
Greeting the people of Pakistan on the Pakistan Day, former President Asif Ali Zardari has exhorted the nation to adopt the Quaid’s August 11, 1947 address to the Constituent Assembly as the guiding principle of the state.
“The Quaid stood for the rule of law but unfortunately today the rule of law does not exist and the criminal justice system has broken down,” he said.
He vowed to bring reforms to the criminal justice system of Pakistan.
The former president also paid tributes to those who laid down their lives and endured hardships in the cause of democracy as well as those who sacrificed their lives fighting the militants and extremists so that we live as free people. They are our nation’s true heroes and heroines, he said.
