Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Sunday said the United Nations had failed to resolved the Kashmir dispute while, "the Kashmiri people continue to await the realisation of the promise the world made to them."
“Much of the ensuing hostility in the subcontinent is due to the festering dispute of Kashmir,” said Bilawal on Sunday, while addressing the National Youth Parliament’s session in the Sindh Assembly.
“I wish the world would listen to Pakistan. Pakistan’s experience fighting terrorism, its struggle for democracy and the brutal occupation of Kashmir prove that had the world listened to Shaheed Zufliqar Ali Bhutto, had the world listened to Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and had the world listened to Pakistan, today world peace would be more than just a dream,” said Bilawal.
Accompanied by Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari and Sindh Assembly Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani, Bilawal also made the most of the youthful setting by taking a few jabs at the ruling party and PTI for their approach towards the ‘future’ leaders of the country.
“The youth is talked to and told what to do but not heard. The youth is pandered to with concerts and free laptops,” he said in an apparent criticism of the PML-N’s laptop schemes and PTI’s dharnas.
The patron-in-chief said that the youth of the country are critical players in defining the future and their energy needs to be harnessed for a prosperous, progressive and peaceful Pakistan.

Referring to the situation in the country, Bilawal Bhutto Zardai said, in today’s world power is measured by the strength of our democracy, the fairness of our economy and our commitment to world peace. The next generation will not count the number of tanks or nukes that we have.
Our generation demands democratic, peaceful, prosperous and progressive Pakistan, he added.
He also criticised the West for its willingness to sign a civil nuclear deal with India , allowing it to export of equipment, materials and technology in the nuclear field.
While the doors remain closed on Pakistan, we see all these doors open one by one for India, once again under the watchful gaze of the UN, Bilawal said.
This consistent discrimination, against a peace loving, democratic Muslim country at the highest forum on the planet, is unacceptable and can no longer be tolerated, he said.
Outlining choices for the country in the future, he said either we become a peaceful, prosperous and progressive Pakistan or we fall to religious fascism. Concluding his remarks to the youth assembly, the Bilawal said, “I beseech the world: listen to the people, listen and learn from Pakistan.”
