LAHORE: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari on Wednesday said that the only danger to the country was from Jati Umra — the residence of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif. “They do not care about Pakistan, they only care about Jati Umra,” Zardari said, while addressing a joint opposition protest rally to seek justice for the Model Town victims in Lahore. He claimed that only the PPP cared about Pakistan, its soil, and the people of its soil. The PPP co-chairman also thanked the attendees for showing solidarity with the Model Town victims and promised to get justice for the families of the deceased. “My brothers and sisters,

I thank you for coming to this protest here. We will get justice for Model Town victims, and Zainab,” he said, referring to the seven-year-old child brutally raped and murdered in Kasur. Zardri said that the PPP had received several dead bodies and court decisions against its leaders, but never spoke against the integrity of Pakistan or the institutions, unlike the Sharifs. The former president also lashed out at military dictators taking over the country and denounced martial law administrator Ziaul Haq’s decisions of the past. “Dictators do not build countries, they only destroy them.”
