In a message on the Yom-e-Ashur, Chairman Pakistan People’s Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has called upon the people to “follow in the footsteps of Imam Hussain (AS) in resisting tyranny, falsehood and oppression”. Tyranny and falsehood wherever it may be, whether nearer the home or far away, whether in Kashmir or in Palestine, must be fought and the tyrant’s head put down, he said. Torture and enforced disappearances are also a tyranny and the Yom-e-Ashur this year is significant also as it falls on the eve of international day of the disappeared. On this day therefore let us also condemn and resist the perpetrators of these crimes against humanity anywhere in the world, he said. Falsehood and oppression is a weapon employed by militants and extremists, he said and asked the people to be watchful against the designs of the fanatics. Today we reiterate our resolve to never submit before oppression and injustice nor let the evil triumph over the good and the noble, the PPP Chairman said. On this day we also pay homage to the immortal martyrs of Karbala and pray that may Allah be pleased with them all.
