ISLAMABAD: Asif Ali Zardari and his son Bilawal Bhutto Zardari strongly condemned the attack on a police convoy in Karachi on Thursday evening in which Senior Superintendent of Police Chaudhry Aslam and his two sub-ordinates were killed.
The former president said that the cowardly attack on the police convoy shows that terrorists are against this country and want to impose their distorted religious and political agenda on its people. “No matter what these terrorists do they will not weaken Pakistani law enforcing security forces and nation’s resolve to fight these terrorist till their last defeat,” said Zardari.
He hailed Chaudhry Aslam as a brave son of this country who, he said, will continue to haunt terrorists from his grave. Zardari said the Pakistani nation thanks this fearless police officer for sacrificing his life courageously fighting to restore peace in Karachi so that men, women and children of this metropolis can live peacefully. “Nation salutes its sons who are fighting this menace of terrorism whether in uniform or civvies,” he said while asking the Sindh government to look after the families of the martyred police officers and provide best medical care to the injured.
Meanwhile, Bilawal said the whole of Pakistan should rise up and declare war against terrorists and their promoters. The PPP patron-in-chief strongly condemned the attack, saying that terrorists and their sponsors would never succeed until the last patriotic Pakistani is alive. In a statement, Bilawal said that the way the terrorists are targeting our valiant soldiers and police personnel the whole of Pakistan should rise up and declare war against these “terror beasts” and their promoters.
Bilawal said that a commission should be set up to conduct an enquiry into the killing of Chaudhry Aslam. He appealed to chief justice of Pakistan to take notice and determine how and why the terrorists arrested by Chaudhry Aslam got off the hook.
