“Muharram reminds us of Karbala and the sacrifice of Imam Hussain (RA), Bibi Zainab (R.A) and his companions. Where ever there is injustice, there is Karbala,” he said.
Bilawal maintained PPP had always struggled politically for democracy and against injustice.
“As a result our leaders Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, Shahnawaz Bhutto, Murtaza Bhutto, Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and hundreds of leaders were martyred.”
Bilawal called October 18, 2007 the ‘darkest incident’ in the history of world politics.
At least 180 people, mostly PPP workers were killed and dozens injured when former prime minister and his mother Benazir Bhutto’s rally was rocked by a powerful bomb near Karsaz Karachi on October 18, 2007.
Benazir Bhutto fled to Dubai a few days after the attack but she had to return back after the then President Pervez Musharraf imposed emergency in the country.
