The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) is observing the 15th death anniversary of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto on Tuesday (today).

PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, a video message on the occasion, invited people to a public rally marking the death of Pakistan’s first female prime minister who was martyred in a terror attack in Rawalpindi.

Bilawal said that he has reached Larkana where they will pay tribute to Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto.

“We draw inspiration from her heroic struggle against dictatorship and extremism,” he said in the video message. 

“Shaheed Benazir Bhutto taught us to serve the people, to strive for a Pakistan for all, not just a privileged few.”

Former president Asif Ali Zardari said the announcement of the institutions being apolitical is also a realisation of the dream of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto, as it will give stability to democracy and establish credibility for the country. 

He said that he can never neglect the mission of the Shaheed Bibi.

“He was guided by her politics and is still being guided by her philosophy,” Zardari said.

The PPP supremo said that no one else faced the difficulties that Shaheed Benazir had faced for the sake of the constitution and democracy. “She was a symbol of patience and endurance,” he said. 

The former president said that Benazir Bhutto bravely resisted the barbaric and brutal dictators. 

“We are strong and steadfast on her ideology because of her teachings,” he said, adding that the continuation of democracy was her dream and by the grace of Almighty Allah, that dream has been fulfilled.

Zardari said that the PPP is striving to make the country free from all kinds of extremism, where there is the light of knowledge, jobs for the people, equal opportunities for the youth to move forward, women free from the shackles of fear, and minorities with a respectable place in the society. 

“This will be a Pakistan envisioned by Shaheed Benazir,” he said.
