“Today we salute the martyrs of Karzaz and indeed all martyrs of democracy and vow to carry forward the democratic and egalitarian mission of the PPP as envisioned by its leaders Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto,” Zardari said in a message on the occasion.
“We pledge to continue her mission to banish extremism and root out dictatorship in all its forms and manifestations,” he said.
The PPP co-chairman said that the Parliament is a shield against dictatorship.
“The Pakistan People’s Party will not allow anyone to undermine the Parliament. Let there be no doubt or mistake about it,” Former President said.
Zardari asked the people to also remember in their prayers all those who have laid down their lives and made untold sacrifices in the fight against extremism.
