ISLAMABAD: The Chairman of Pakistan Peoples Party. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has expressed dismay that the judiciary has not provided justice to the martyrs of May 12 carnage in Karachi even after 13 years.
“Dozens of political workers and lawyers were mowed down in Karachi streets in daylight by the terrorist stooges of the dictator for their struggle for free and independent judiciary and supremacy of the Constitution and law,†PPP Chairman said in a statement issued on the 13th anniversary of May 12 carnage.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that dictator Musharraf resorted to brutal attacks against the political workers and lawyers for demanding free judiciary and majority of those gunned down belonged to PPP, he added.
Paying tributes and salutes to the May 12 carnage martyrs, the PPP Chairman said democratic parties and the people of Pakistan are dismayed that the martyrs and their families have not been provided justice though they laid down their lives for restoration of independent judiciary. “How many more decades will be required for justice to them as the case appears to be running on snail’s pace. Delaying justice was tantamount to denial of justice,†he added.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari pledged that PPP stands by the bereaved families of the martyrs and assured that their sacrifices won’t go in vain and one day their dream of independent judiciary and justice without any discrimination will come true.
