Babar Awan said the PPPled government would foil all such conspiracies against unity and solidarity among the Islamic world as its Founder Chairman Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was among the pioneers of Organization of Islamic Conference, Rabta Aalim-e-Islami, Mo'atmir Aalim-e-Islami besides organizing the Islamic Summit in Lahore.

The PPP,he said had worked hard for upholding social justice, establishing democracy ensuring supremacy of the constitution and strengthening security of the country.
He said the pary would continue make efforts to defeat anti people and undemocratic forces.
