KARACHI, June 17: Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Patron-In-Chief, Pakistan Peoples Party has condemned the Punjab Police brutalities in Lahore, which resulted in killings of several people, including women.
“Such brutal use of force against protests is a slap on democratic traditions,” PPP Patron-In-Chief stated adding Punjab government should apologize to the people and order immediate action against the officials involved in the killings and torture of people.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said the country needs to reiterate and follow the golden words of Founder of the Nation Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah Unity, Faith and Discipline. It is the high time in the history of our country that we need to break from politics and protests to fight unanimously against the menace of terrorism, he added.
He said that President Asif Ali Zardari had laid foundation of shining example of political tolerance, non-vindictiveness and non-violence to strengthen the democratic traditions in Pakistan.
