President Zardari telephones Begum Taseer

President Asif Ali Zardari Thursday said that Shaheed Salman Taseer wrote with his blood a new chapter in the history of PPP’s continued struggle for human rights, democracy and indiscrimination.

He said this while talking to Mrs. Salman Taseer on the eve of the Soyem of the late Governor who was gunned down by his own security guard in Islamabad the other day.

Salman Taseer’s courage and determination in espousing the causes of the marginalized sections of society and readiness to pay the highest price for it will continue to inspire many, he said.

He noted that Taseer was killed to sharpen the polarization in the society to derail the democratic process using the facade of religion.
