KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Thursday an extensive strategy instead of military solution is essential for the elimination of extremism.
In an interview with BBC, he maintained that reforms in education, syllabus, police and judiciary are needed to end extremism.
“I think that Pakistan is only focusing on military solution against extremism but e need a broad strategy. Surely, people who challenge the state and raise weapons against it, they should be dealt on a military forefront. But to tackle terrorism, we need an overall approach which not only focus on terror activities but end extremism also,” said the PPP chairman.
Criticizing former president Pervez Musharraf, Bilawal asserted that he threatened his mother Benazir Bhutto while the witnesses of the incident are also present.
“Seven judges were changed in the assasination case of Benazir Bhutto. The case could have solved in two weeks but ten years have passed and we have yet not received justice. This is the mockery of justice,” he said.
He questioned why Musharraf do not face the accusations leveled against him in court. The PPP chirman went on to say that PPP did not chose the way of family politics with its own will.
On the other hand, Bilawal will visit Keti Bunder where he will inaugurate planting campaign in the area.
The campaign will set new record to plant most trees in a single day. Sindh forest department will make the record by planting more than 10 lac trees.
It is pertinent to mention here that in 2013, Pakistan broke the record of India while planting 8,47,257 trees. Later in 2010, India managed to plant 6,11,000 plants in one day.
