PPP commemorate 13th anniversary of Karsaz martyres today

 PPP lost more than 170 workers in bomb attacks on its rally 13 years ago

More than 170 PPP activists lost their lives and more than 700 suffered injuries when two bomb blasts ripped through the crowded rally near Karsaz in 2007. The families of martyred workers are still waiting for the justice. They still don't know who killed scores of party workers and loved ones. The investigation into that terrorist attack never concluded.   

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) is marking the 13th anniversary of 2007 Karsaz bombings with due reverence and solemnity in Karachi and other parts Pakistan. The deadly bombing took place on Oct 18, 2007, when Benazir Bhutto shaheed was returning home from an exile after nine years. She was greeted by a big procession of jiyalas from the airport to the city centre.

PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari will also visit the memorial and lay floral wreaths and offer fateha for the martyrs.

In a statement, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that these martyrs paid supreme sacrifices for the constitution, democracy and all-powerful Parliaments and thus wrote a golden chapter in the political history.

Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Wednesday paid tribute to the martyrs of October 18 Karsaz massacre when terrorists bombed reception of more than three million people gathered to receive Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto thirteen years ago in Karachi.
