The Pak Banker - - 2national -

LA­HORE: Fed­eral Min­is­ter for Law, Jus­tice and Par­lia­men­tary Af­fairs Dr Babar Awan re­ject­ing the doc­u­ments re­leased by a web­site Wik­iLeaks has said that these were aimed just to black­mail the lead­ers of the Is­lamic world.

Ad­dress­ing a cer­e­mony in con­nec­tion with the Pak­istan Peo­ple's Party Foun­da­tion Day at the res­i­dence of se­nior PPP leader Ahmed Riaz Sheikh, he said the doc­u­ments re­leased by Wik­iLeaks was a pro­pa­ganda based on a con­spir­acy planned to in­sult Mus­lim lead­ers in the world.

He said that Pak­istan would foil all such de­signs to hurt the trust and harm broth­erly re­la­tions be­tween the Is­lamic Block which was formed by the Saudi Ara­bian King Shah Faisal and PPP Founder Chair­man Sha­heed Zul­fikar Ali Bhutto.

He said that this scan­dal could not hurt Pak­istan's re­la­tions with the UAE and Saudi Ara­bia adding that their re­li­gious, cul­tural,po­lit­i­cal,emo­tional and strate­gic re­la­tions would be strength­ened fur­ther.

The law min­is­ter said that Wik­iLeaks scan­dal was part of a global agenda to de­fame the nu­clear ca­pa­bil­ity, strate­gic as­sets and the in­sti­tu­tions re­spon­si­ble of na­tional se­cu­rity of Pak­istan.

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.

Awan also re­it­er­ated the govern­ment and his party's re­solve to bring the coun­try out of ev­ery cri­sis with the sup­port of peo­ple. He also paid rich trib­ute to the Founder Chair­man of PPP Sha­heed Zul­fikar Ali Bhutto and Sha­heed Be­nazir Bhutto for their con­tri­bu­tion to the em­pow­er­ment of poor masses and es­pe­cially the women be­sides en­sur­ing the na­tional se­cu­rity through nu­clear ca­pa­bil­ity.

He said that PPP had al­ways worked for strength­en­ing the Fed­er­a­tion and it granted po­lit­i­cal au­ton­omy to the prov­inces in keep­ing with the far sighted vi­sion of its lead­er­ship. 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.

Babar Awan crit­i­cised the Pun­jab Govern­ment for not en­sur­ing good gov­er­nance in its de­part­ments.

He said that PPP never boy­cotted the peo­ple of Pak­istan as it was done by the PML-N and it would make a clean sweep in the next elec­tion in 2013.

The Min­is­ter said that some in­flu­en­tial peo­ple were get­ting ben­e­fits from reschedul­ing their out­stand­ing loans in Pun­jab and this is­sue would soon come to no­tice.

The PPP would con­tinue rec­on­cil­ia­tory pol­i­tics and de­velop the Pan­j­gore city just like La­hore.

Fed­eral Min­is­ter for So­cial Wel­fare Sam­ina Khalid Ghurki, Pun­jab Min­is­ter for IT Fa­rooq Yousuf Ghurki,MPA Shabina Riaz Sheikh and other se­nior party lead­ers also were present. -App
