KARACHI: Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Patron-In-Chief, Pakistan Peoples Party said Shaheed Salman Taseer was truly a Martyr of Humanity because he was killed for showing sympathy in a society, under threat from blood-thirsty extremists devoid of spiritually.
On 3rd Martyrdom Day Anniversary of Shaheed Salman Taseer, PPP Patron-In-Chief said country is under extreme danger of being dragged into the pre-Islamic Arab tribal culture and pledged that his Party, together with all other democratic forces, will struggle for true Islamic teaching and values of tolerance and respect to humanity as per the spirit of Meesaq-e-Madina.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said Muslims should take guidance from holy Quraan instead of the half-literate Mullahs and pointed towards Surat An-Nisa Ayat 75, “And what is [the matter] with you that you fight not in the cause of Allah and [for] the oppressed among men, women, and children who say, “Our Lord, take us out of this city of oppressive people and appoint for us from Yourself a protector and appoint for us from Yourself a helper?”
It is pity that Shaheed Salman Taseer was gunned down for following the holy Quraan and listening to the woes of an oppressed woman.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari paid tributes to Shaheed Salman Taseer adding that country and its people will never forget his sacrifice and those who maligned him and instigating his killings won’t rest in peace in life and after.
