Taking note of PTI’s Minister for his remarks on SZAB in an election rally in Azad Kashmir, Parliamentary leader of the Pakistan People’s Party in Senate and Chair of the Senate Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Senator Sherry Rehman said,” Those who point fingers on SZAB should first look at themselves. How can those that were involved in Gilgit-Baltistan election rigging, come again to steal these elections? This propaganda against Zulfikar Ali Bhutto Shaheed and his family, continues even today after 50 years. Those who offer bribes of crores for a single vote have no knowledge of history or morality. PTI government has not set a good precedent by not apologising for these comments”.
“It is the same SZAB who repatriated our 90,000 soldiers from India. He never compromised when it came to Pakistan. He remained steadfast in his ambition to improve things for Pakistan, whether it was US threating him or the dictator back home, he never made a deal with anyone. On one hand you are calling OBL a shaheed and on the other you are saying that SZAB is a traitor? This government has clearly missed a few lessons on our history” concluded Vice President PPP, Senator Sherry Rehman.
