KARACHI - Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that violent extremism poses severe threats to the human rights in the country, which needs to be tackled carefully.

In his message on the Human Rights Day, the PPP chairman also expressed concern over the violations of human rights during PML-N government.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari stated that PPP believes in the full protection of human rights . PPP passed several laws and established institutions to safeguard basic human rights of the people of Pakistan, he added. He pledged that PPP won’t tolerate violations of human rights as it was not only a national inclusive political party but is the nation’s largest movement for human rights as well.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that strong and democratic nations keep human rights as their highest priority and we also need more efforts to improve the situation.

He reiterated that PPP leadership and workers would continue their fight for the protection of human rights in the country as well as in the world.

Meanwhile, in a statement issued on Sunday, PPPP Senator Aajiz Dhamrah responded to Shebaz Sharif over leveling allegations of corruption on Shehbaz Sharif and said that chief minister Punjab has lost his mind after seeing the gallows in front of himself after the publication of Model Town enquiry commission report.

He said that PML-N itself is surrounded by corrupt people and it is unfortunate for the country that a person who is involved in taking commissioning LNG issue is positioned as the prime minister of the country by the PML-N leadership.

“The prime minister should also think twice before leveling allegations at the PPP leadership and should first initiate an enquiry on rental power projects.”

He said that PPPP President Asif Ali Zardari had faced the so-called accountability campaign from Nawaz Sharif and Shehbaz Sharif for more than 11 years and later the courts had acquitted him.

“Shehbaz Sharif should now tell the nation that why millions were spend on an accountability process that had yielded no result.”

He said that Nawaz Sharif and his associates could no longer fool people through their lies and they should know that the accountability commission chief who filed cases against Asif Zardari had to apologize over fake cases.
