Chairman of Pakistan People's Party Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, while addressing a function in Washington, said that extremism and terrorism are not only limited to the Muslim world.

Bilawal said that there is a growing increase in terrorism in Pakistan and that democracy can win over extremism, but the biggest battle is of ideologies. "The battle is between modernity and extremism," he said.

Bilawal further added that terrorism and extremism aren't limited to the Muslim world only. Terrorism in the region has severely damaged the political and social balance. Extremism, climate change and unusual behaviour towards each other is the reason we are not united today.

"We will have to endure severe losses and torture if it continues this way," he concluded.

Last month, Bilawal said that he will tie the knot just once, unlike some other politicians of the country who are habitual grooms.

“I don’t wish to get married one after the another like some other politicians,” he said in an apparent reference to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan, while speaking during an interview on Thursday, on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum (WEF) being held in Davos, Switzerland.


vinsin | 6 years ago | Reply It may not be limited but Muslim majority countries are neither secular nor liberal and also majority of terrorists do call themselves as Muslims. But I do agree that battle is between extremism vs secularism and liberalism.
