KARACHI — Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari addressing what is being termed his ‘make or break’ public meeting in the provincial capital on Saturday reiterated his pledge to make Kashmir a part of Pakistan, the News International reported.
In what is being called a milestone rally of PPP’s history and Bilawal Bhutto’s political journey in the country, attended by thousands of supporters from across the country at Bagh-e-Jinnah next to the mausoleum of Quaid-e-Azam, the PPP Chairman was warmly welcomed amid claps and slogans of ‘Jeay Bhutto, Jeay Benazir’.
“The struggle from Quaid-e-Azam to Quaid-e-Awam and from Shaheed Benazir to this day has been for only one cause; to give the people their rights,” he said.
Three million people came out on the day BB Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto returned to Pakistan on October 18, 2007. “But Musharraf’s paidawar sabotaged the welcome rally,” he added
“Those wielding the guns are scared of even a woman,’ he said, questioning ‘why only whip lashes and bullets become our fate’.
He said the very first woman ruler of an Islamic country was made the target of a worst form of brutality.
“They think they can bring us down with use of force, but they must not forget that a Bhutto is never afraid of oppressors and their brutal designs.” He recited the poem of Habib Jalib “Main Baghi Hoon”.
“Main Baghi hoon main Baghi hoon, Main Bhutto hoon main Bhutto hoon. Jo Chahay Mujh par zulm karain…..” he said.
On Kashmir issue
He said when he spoke of Kashmir, the Indian media began its propaganda against him while PPP’s website was also hacked. “It was so because they are aware that Bhuttoism is recognized by the whole world,” he maintained.
“We will not let the Pak-India dialogue be held hostage by the issue of Kashmir,” he said.
Bilawal said Bhuttoizm is the guarantee of Pakistan’s stability. The joining force for all the provinces is Benazir, he said.
“We don’t dance to the tunes of someone else’s finger,’ he said.
