Karachi

In a press release issued on the occasion of the 92nd birth anniversary of the founder of the Pakistan Peoples Party on Sunday, Sindh Minister for Information, Archives and Labour Saeed Ghani said former prime minister Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto sacrificed his life for the people of Pakistan.

Lauding the services of his party leader, Ghani said the legacy of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto continued to hold an exceptional place in the hearts of millions of Pakistanis. As a selfless leader of the people and as a great patriot that he was, Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto would forever live in the hearts of the people and continued to inspire them to serve the country with devotion and sincerity, the minister said. “The best tribute that we could pay to Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto is to make a firm resolve to work ceaselessly, selflessly and with devotion to rebuild Pakistan into a strong and progressive country,” he added. Ghani said millions of young Pakistanis looked up to Bhutto’s “life, his determination, his perseverance in the face of all odds”.

He said the adoption of 1973 Constitution, rallying the Muslim world on one platform and laying the basis for the country’s nuclear programme were some of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s sincere accomplishments.

“He [Bhutto] convinced the masses that the people themselves were the true architects and guardians of their destiny. He emboldened the heart of every single downtrodden Pakistani who was ever told that being and unprivileged person precluded him/her from a lifetime of accomplishment, service and worth. This was his greatest legacy,” he noted.
