Speaking at the Sindh Festival closing ceremony, the PPP leader also recalled the Swat operation while criticizing the peace process. He said the nation was fully informed about what had happened in Swat and with Maulana Sufi Muhammad.
“Our country, our culture is in danger, our rulers didn’t tell us the truth, they tried to suppress us, they wanted to break us but we didn’t break,“ he said.
“You say, let’s talk, please do, but ask me what will happen after talks because I know the consequences,” the PPP chief said.
He said the Taliban wanted to enforce law of oppression through violence “but they should be sacred of the time when this nation will rise and unite against them.”
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari slammed the Taliban for trying to drag the country back to the “stone-age.” Bhutto also urged the country to rise up against the threats.
“The Taliban want to impose the law of terror in the country, but I want to tell them, if you have to live in Pakistan you will have to follow its constitution,” he said.
“We don’t accept the law of terrorists,” he added. “Some people are trying to bring back the stone-age era in the country in the name of Islam.”
“The terrorists should think of the time when the whole nation will stand against them,” he said in Makli, around 100 kilometres north of Karachi.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said they have shown to the world through Sindh Festival that ‘we are not terrorists’ but a victim of it adding that the blood of martyrs won’t go in vain.
He said that the people are fully aware of what the Shariah, Islam and civilization is; asking “who are they to teach us Islam?”
Bilawal said that they won’t bow before terrorists and do not recognize the terrorists as torchbearers of Islam. “Terrorists want to impose their own law of terrorism,” he said. “We do not recognize terrorists’ system of jungle; they want to open the gates of heaven by building piles of corpses.”
Chairman PPP said that these are the same people who oppose Pakistan; the same people who termed Quaid-e-Azam as infidel. He further said that they won’t let the blood of martyrs go in vain.
Bilawal asked if the nation has forgotten Sufi Mohammad and how PPP led government established writ in Swat. “Ask the nation’s daughters what terrorism means” he said. “Will the nation’s daughters be treated like Malala?”
PPP Chief said they are not the product of the West but “our own civilization is under threat.” The terrorists should fear the time when the nation will unite and do ‘damadum mast qalandar’ against them, he warned.
He said Taliban want so spread terror through their bloody campaign of violence. “I will make an example out of them (Taliban) and won’t let the blood of martyrs go waste,” he said.
Taliban should be scared of the moment when the nation gets united against them he said, adding if militants want to live in Pakistan, they will have to adhere to the law and constitution.
“We know who we are, and what our destination is. Don’t teach the meaning of Islam and Sharia.” The young PPP leader said that Sindh was the gateway of Islam.
