PPP Working For Women Rights: Taseer
PUNJAB Governor Salman Taseer has said the Pakistan Peoples Party is a liberal party which always raised voice for rights and empowerment of women.
In a meeting with the delegation of the Aurat Foundation at Governor’s House on Tuesday, Salman Taseer said democracy and human rights were indispensable for the progress of the country.
He said the struggle of the Pakistan Peoples Party for democracy and human rights set such a precedent which couldn’t be found in political history of the world.
He said Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto Shaheed always linked themselves with people of the country and laid down their lives in fighting for their rights.
The delegation of the Aurat Foundation informed the governor about the rising incidents of acid throwing, sexual harassment and violence against women.
The governor also assured the delegation of its meeting with the President to discuss all issues being faced by the women in society.
