Federal Minister for Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resources Development Sajid Hussain Tori delivers a significant message on Pakistan Martyrs’ Day

Islamabad, May 27, 2023 (PPI-OT):Federal Minister for Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resources Development Mr. Sajid Hussain Tori, delivered a significant message on Pakistan Martyrs’ Day. He emphasized the vital responsibility of every patriotic Pakistani to remember the sacrifices made by the martyrs and their families. He urged the nation to hold their memory close to their hearts, while expressing deep sadness and distress over the bloodshed and desecration of sacred monuments that occurred in May. These acts of humiliation and destruction are truly heart-breaking.

The minister acknowledged that the martyrs gave their lives to protect the integrity and survival of our nation, silencing the hateful propaganda of our enemies. He mentioned revered leaders such as Quaid-e-Azam, Allama Iqbal, and the defenders of our borders, who sacrificed their lives for the country. The minister believed that these martyrs would undoubtedly be proud of the country they helped build and protect. Pakistan was achieved through countless sacrifices and tireless efforts. Numerous young men laid down their lives to safeguard it.

However, our eternal enemy, India, celebrated these events and propagated malicious narratives against Pakistan. Their aim was to undermine the roots of our nation, a conspiracy that was thwarted. The burning and vandalization of historical buildings like Jinnah House, Corps Commander House Lahore, and Radio Pakistan in Peshawar were condemned. Similarly, the disturbances that occurred at military and civilian sites in other cities of Pakistan were deemed completely unacceptable.

Thankfully, our brave army and other law enforcement agencies foiled this enemy plot. Prime Minister of Pakistan, Ari Chief, Foreign Minister Mr. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, along with a significant number of civil society members, visited these sites to emphasize the need to bring those involved in these acts to justice. The Prime Minister reiterated that no recommendations would be accepted in this regard.

The Pakistan People’s Party, as a democratic party, aims to promote democratic thinking and urges the public not to be deceived by those working against the state. Instead, they should support those working for the development and prosperity of Pakistan. The commitment to honour our martyrs was reaffirmed, vowing to spare no effort in recognizing their sacrifices. May the martyrs’ day be a fitting tribute to our beloved country – Pakistan Zindabad
