On Thursday, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that if foreign elements succeeded in carrying out a mosquito attack in Balochistan, the terrorists would slaughter ten coal miners.
“We do not want to hear that foreign elements are involved. It is a failure of our state if they succeed in killing our citizens in this way,” the PPP chairman said.
His remarks came as he shared the grief of the Hazara community in Quetta who are mourning the brutal killing that took place five days ago.
Bilawal lamented the state’s failure to implement the National Action Plan to curb such crimes, and said that every time he visits the community, it is because such an incident has taken place.
“Pakistan is a country where even the bodies of our dead loved ones have to protest (for their rights). We live in a land where everything is expensive – gas, electricity and food – but The blood of our workers is cheap. ” Chairman of the PPP.
A protest by mourners in Quetta entered its fifth day today, with the heirs of the deceased refusing to bury them until Prime Minister Imran Khan arrives and meets them. The Prime Minister has told the Hazara community that he is aware of their plight and demands and has promised to meet them soon and urge them not to delay in burying their dead. ۔
Bilawal said 2,000 had died since 1999, but “not a single family has been given justice”.
He recalled a bygone era in which protests were made by a community of 100 corpses, and when demands were made. “Our government came together and then a new government came. And now, another government has come and you are protesting again. And your only demand is that you be allowed to live.”
He said that this single demand has resonated all over Pakistan, on the streets of Karachi, Islamabad and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and all the supporters and well-wishers of Hazara stand by them.
“I can only promise you that I too, from the family of the martyrs. We too, have not been able to get justice. I promise you, the way we work day and night to seek justice, you We also have brothers […] Until I die, and as long as I continue to serve the people, I will do my best to (save the lives of all our people).
Bilawal said he appealed to the state to look after the needs of the people “who are the ones who love Pakistan the most”.
“If you can’t give them justice, who will we give justice to? What will we tell the world? We can’t guarantee the right to life here.”
Bilawal said that guaranteeing the safety of the lives of the citizens is the first duty of the state and then it can look towards employment and economic development. He said that Hazaras are also victims of injustice in these areas.
“But we will not talk about these issues. We just demand justice and living.”
Bilawal said, “We support all your demands and promise you that you face this injustice and oppression, the PPP will always stand by you, and soon we will be happy for you. I will participate too. “
‘Is your ego higher than those?’
PML-N vice-president Maryam Nawaz was next to deliver the speech, saying she could not find the words to express her grief and reassure the crowd.
“I salute you all. You have more than 2,000 people you have lost. Each of you has an open book that tells the story of such pain and sorrow.”
“I ask Imran Khan, these bodies lying here, is your ego more than them?”
He asked if he was coming out of fear of criticism. “So what? Come here and listen to the criticism for a while […] But it is your duty to come here and share in their grief. “
“People are not asking for anything unusual,” Maryam said. He lamented that he had heard someone say that he would wait 100 days if that happened.
He said that he has also heard how the mercury temperature drops to 8 degrees and these people are sitting openly waiting for the arrival of the Prime Minister.
“I regret the indifference of anyone in the seat of power. You are calling him and he does not have time to come.”
She said she did not know what she could do, but raised her voice for the Hazara community. He asked the Prime Minister to think about his children and family and imagine the pain they are enduring.
“You are a community that has been loyal to the land and has fully participated in the development of Pakistan. Now it is the responsibility of the state to look after your needs and heal its wounds,” he said. ” Therefore, “is not eligible to remain in power.”
“We will not allow him to stay in Islamabad.”
Maryam stopped saying that she would do everything possible for her party, saying that she considers herself her sister and daughter.
She later went to express her condolences to the female members of the community and share their grief.
