KARACHI, September 12, 2014: Pakistan Peoples Party Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has paid glowing tributes to the nine Party martyrs who laid down their lives during MRD movement in Khairpur Nathan Shah this day in 1983. These heroes of democratic movement were martyred in ruthless firing on the protesting workers from different villages in Khairpur Nathan Shah by dictator Gen Zia’s martial law forces to quell the struggle led by Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and Begum Nusrat Bhutto for restoration of democracy.
He said these innocent Party workers carried no weapons or batons during their struggle for democracy yet they were targeted by roaring guns of the dictator Zia and embraced Shahadat for the cause of the nation and democratic order.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari saluted each martyr of Khairpur Nathan Shah including Aziz Lakhair, Shahnawaz Khoso, Ghulam Nabi Khoso, Nizamuddin Naich, Habibullah Leghari, Deedar Khokhar, Allah Warrayo Langah, Abdul Ghani Abro and Zamir Jagirani.
Pakistan Peoples Party is observing the 31st Martyrdom Day of MRD Martyrs in Dadu district and PPP MNA Imran Leghari has organized a programme to pay homage to them.
Chairperson said PPP would never forget the martyrs, both leaders and workers, as they continue to inject strength in the continuing struggle for democracy. Instead of avenging these martyrdoms, the PPP chose the Democracy to be the Best Revenge because we are waging Jehad for the rights of downtrodden, oppressed and poverty-ridden people of Pakistan and their bright future.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari also asked the Sindh government to look after the families of our martyrs as he would never tolerate any complaint of the martyrs’ families.
