Zardari praises Taseer sacrifice, consoles family

Governor Punjab embraced martyrdom defending minorities
KARACHI: President Asif Ali Zardari has said that Shaheed Salman Taseer wrote with his blood a new chapter in the history of PPP’s continuing struggle for human rights, democracy and no-discrimination. He said this while talking to Mrs Salman Taseer on the eve of the soyem of the late Governor who was gunned down by his own security guard in Islamabad.
The President said that Shaheed Salman Taseer was an undaunted political leader and a true follower of Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto in treading their path to martyrdom.
He called a spade a spade and did not mince words in expressing what he believed to be true and right, the President said of Salman Taseer.

Salman Taseer’s courage and determination in espousing the causes of the marginalised sections of society and readiness to pay the highest price for it will continue to inspire many, he said.
“His defiant cry against bigotry and his loud and clarion call for defending marginalised sections of society will echo in the annals of time. Salman Taseer was an asset of the Party and did it proud, the President said.”
“Few possess the courage of Shaheed Salman Taseer in standing up to bigots and fanatics, and fewer still the readiness to embrace martyrdom for it”, the President said. The President said that Taseer was killed to sharpen the polarisation in the society to derail the democratic process using the fa├žade of religion. He expressed the hope that all the dirty hands behind the crime will be exposed and punished in accordance with the law. The supreme sacrifice rendered by Shaheed Salman Taseer will not go in vain, the President further said.
The President also prayed to Allah to grant the Shaheed a high place in heaven and asked Begum Salman Taseer to convey his condolences to other members of the bereaved family. Begum Salman Taseer thanked the President saying that his words were a source of great strength in this hour of tragedy. -Online
