SUKKUR: Federal Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira claimed on Friday that Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari did not say anything against the judiciary in his December 27 speech in Garhi Khuda Bukhsh, reported Express News.
Speaking to the media at Sukkur airport, Kaira said that the PPP respects the judiciary, and a free judiciary is a sign of a strong nation.
The minister also clarified that Bilawal had not called for the arrest for his mother Benazir Bhutto’s killers, but had appealed for punishment to be given to the arrested accused.
What Bilawal said
Beginning his career in the mainstream politics, Bilawal held a speech on the fifth death anniversary of his mother in Garhi Khuda Bukhsh.
While stressing mainly on the importance of democracy in the country, Bilawal also criticised the judiciary for not providing justice in his mother's assassination.
According to Bilawal, the judiciary had all the time to monitor the prices of petty things, but did not have time to punish the arrested killers.
He said, “Many Pakistanis, like myself, are still waiting to find justice for their loved ones.”
“When you do not have time to bring the murderers of my mother to justice – who are already arrested – then where did you get the time to have a trial of her grave?” he had questioned.
