KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Patrol-in-chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Monday funds had been raised to rehabilitate and repair a bombed Peshawar church while more funds would be collected for other churches.

He said this while extending Christmas greetings to Christians at a Christmas cake-cutting ceremony at Sindh Museum.

Bilawal said the PPP was the “only party with a declared pledge that all the Pakistanis are equal and enjoy same rights of freedom of religion without any bar or restrictions”.

“In the PPP family, Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Dalits, Sikhs, Parsi or followers of any faith celebrate together on every religious festival,” he added.

He said his party would raise funds to carry out maintenance and repair of churches besides helping victims of Peshawar church blasts.

Several PPP leaders, including those from party Minority’s Wing, were also present on the occasion.
