MULTAN: Former Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani on Tuesday congratulated Taseer family for the safe recovery of Shahbaz Taseer, the abducted son of slain Punjab governor Salmaan Taseer.


“I have made a phone call to the younger son of Salman Taseer and felicitated him for the recovery of Shahbaz Taseer,” Gilani told media persons in Multan.

“Taseer family has suffered so much pain. We are happy that Shahbaz Taseer is back,” he said.
