LAHORE: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Thursday that these were the worst times for the parliament in Pakistan.
Addressing Lahore High Court Bar Association, Bilawal Bhutto said Pakistan was founded by Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, who was a lawyer; late prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto gave the country its first constitution. “There could be no democracy without the rule of law,” he said, adding, “Therefore, the supremacy of the constitution in the country is a must.”
Bilawal said his mother late Benazir Bhutto and his father former president Asif Ali Zardari were implicated in false and fabricated cases. “But later, courts set them free which vindicated their innocence,” he claimed. He went on to say that his grandfather ZAB’s hanging was a judicial murder. “But he still lives in people’s hearts,” he added.
Bilawal stated that no nation can prosper without the rule of law because it acts as a bridge between the people and the government of the country. The PPP leader said that it was Zulfikar Ali Bhutto who gave Pakistan democracy and the Constitution. Democracy is not possible without law, he added.
The PPP chairman further said that his party believed in rule of law and that was why they played an important role in the restoration of the judiciary.
