LAHORE - Deciding the fate of Article 295-C of the Blasphemy Law is the job of Parliament, while the PPP would accept any decision in this regard, says Jehangir Badar, secretary general PPP. He expressed these views while addressing a press conference at Lahore Press Club on Saturday. He said the government had nothing to do with the Article 295-C, as the Parliament had the authority to take any decision over the stated Article of the law. The PPP leader said his party was reviewing keenly the issue of 295-C as well as the blasphemy case of a Christian woman, Aasia Bibi, but let the Parliament undertake its job in this regard, as the PPP strongly believed in supremacy of the Parliament. To a query about Punjab Governor Salman Taseers visit to the accused of Blasphemy, Aasia Masih in Sheikhupura District Jail some days before, he said he had no idea why the governor met her. However, the governor did not hold any party office and it was not his (Badar) responsibility to answer about the actions of Salman Taseer and the media should ask the governor directly that why he called on visited Aasia Masih. Commenting on the issue of holding an independent ceremony of Foundation Day of the PPP by an estranged group under the leadership of Naheed Khan and Safdar Abbasi, Jehangir said such acts by any group had no worth as some people had already tried to do so in the past but they had failed at the end. On this occasion, Badar announced that the party had decided to contest the by-elections in NA-172, Dera Ghazi Khan, and the partys co-chairperson President Asif Ali Zardari had given a green signal to Shabbir Leghari as a candidate of the party from the stated constituency for the by-polls. He clarified PPP was not going to make any alliance with any other party including its coalition partners for NA-172. Jehangir said they believed in politics of reconciliation and would continue this policy in future to solve the crises facing Pakistan. PPP leaders including Samiullah Khan, Dr Fakharuddin Chaudhry, Latif Khosa, Aurangzeb Burki, Malik Hafeez-ur-Rehman and Shabbir Leghari were also present in the press conference.
