Karachi: Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Patron-In-Chief, Pakistan Peoples’ Party has condoled the death of former South African President Nelson Mandela and paid glowing tributes to him for his successful heroic struggle against apartheid and human slavery.
“History shall record Nelson Mandela and his personal sacrifices in golden words for he inspired the weak, discriminated and those treated inhumanly. He will live on in the human history as a huge icon as a freedom fighter who led his nation from apartheid, slavery and human indignity to human equality, freedom and dignity.”
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari pointed out that apartheid regime of South Africa tried every dirty trick from calling him atheist to putting him in chains for three long decades but failed to break him and stop him from his struggle for his country and its people.
“I know that his detractors won’t digest it well but the fact remains that almost similar kind of mudslinging campaign was carried out against President Asif Ali Zardari under the concocted and unproved charges of corruption putting him into jail for over a decade,” he said adding that even after undergoing such worst victimizations at the hands of their respective regimes, both Nelson Mandela and Asif Ali Zardari pursued the policies of reconciliation and tolerance.
