PPP committed to human rights protection, says Bilawal

10 December, 2013

KARACHI: Pakistan People's Party Patron-In-Chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has reiterated commitment of his party to protection of human rights of every citizen of Pakistan, without any exclusion.

"Nothing is more important than basic human rights in any democratic and civilised society," Bilawal stated on the eve of World Human Rights Day being observed all over the globe today (Tuesday). He pointed out that safeguarding the basic rights of the masses has been the founding principle of Pakistan Peoples Party led by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and vigorously pursued by Benazir Bhutto. "In the course of valiant struggle for the people's human rights, both the martyrs sacrificed their lives for better future of our generations," Bilawal said.

He said the basic human rights are not any kind of concession, privilege or a favour. The PPP leader said that the scourge of terrorism has become the major threat to human rights. He said the Pakistan People's Party was perhaps the only political party in the country which has a full-fledged and functional human rights wing to keep vigilance against the abuse of people's basic rights. Bilawal asked the federal government to adopt concrete steps to curb violations of human rights. He said the Pakistan People's Party will not tolerate ignorant attitude towards the issue.

Bilawal strongly condemned the cold-blooded murder of Hindu Dalit girl Kaku Kolhi in Shadi Pali by her tormentors and asked investigations under an honest police official to ensure justice. Expressing sympathies with the members of Kaku Kolhi's family, Bilawal said he was anguished to learn about the atrocities against this poor segment of society by criminals and goons.

He pledged that the PPP will take every step and make every possible effort to protect the people from marginalised communities and ensure their dignity and security. He asked Sindh government to take special interest and follow the investigations to ensure that nobody influences the investigation and lets culprits slip off the hook.
