PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said “ My party will continue to fight for the rights of minorities and oppressed people”.
“When a Muslim could be president of India, why cant a person belonging to a minority community hold this post in Pakistan” he asked .
Attending a Holi event and addressing a public meeting in Marvi ground here on Thursday, he recalled that he had celebrated Divali in Mithi last year and now “I am celebrating Holi in Umerkot”.
“We have given freedom to the minorities and will give security to their coming generations. We will soon pass a law against forced conversion and give them the right of equal citizens,” Mr Bilawal said.
“We want to make Pakistan the country of Quaid-i-Azam in accordance with his speech of Aug 11, 1947, where he said you all are free to go to your places of worship — mosque, church and temple. The state has nothing to do with it.
“We don’t want a country where minorities and Muslims, poor and rich, labourers and industrialists, and Musharraf and Benazir have their separate country. All have equal rights here and all should be provided equal opportunities,” he said.
