KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has become famous for taking revenge, said Pakistan People’s Party Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari at the Karsaz attack memorial.
“Tehreek-e-Insaf has become Tehreek-e-Inteqaam”, the PPP chairperson said while speaking to the media and party workers on the 11th death anniversary of the Karsaz attack.
About the twin blasts that killed more than 150 PPP workers and injured many others, Bilawal said the victims sacrificed their lives for the country and democracy.
However, he added, proper investigation should be carried out over terrorist attacks. According to Bilawal, evidence collected from the crime scene then were wasted.
He was of the view that public should be kept updated on probe that authorities concerned carry out following such attacks.
Earlier in the day, Sindh Local Government Minister Saeed Ghani visited the graveyard in Azam Basti area where he offered prayers at the victims’ graves.
On the other hand, prayers were also offered while free food was distributed in Garhi Khuda Baksh, a village where Benazir and other members of the Bhutto family rest in peace.
Issuing a statement, PPP Co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari said the martyrs of Karsaz attack are the shining starts of democracy, whose sacrifices would not go to waste.
On October 18, 2007, former prime minister Benazir Bhutto’s homecoming procession was attacked with two blasts killing more than 150 PPP workers.
Benazir escaped the attack unhurt but was assassinated two months later during an election rally in Rawalpindi when a gunman shot her in the neck and set off a bomb.
Dozens of people were killed and more were injured in the attack on December 27, 2007.
