Zardari, in a message release by PPP media cell on Easter eve, urged the religious scholars, political parties and civil society to show concern towards the grave issues.

“It is deeply worrying that the right to adequate defence is steadily eroding for those charged with religion-related offences,” said the former president.

“The PPP will continue to fight the ideology of religion-inspired violence that lay at the heart of terrorism,” he said.

The PPP co-chairman added that his party was committed to ensure equality and justice for minorities, including Christians as per the promise of the constitution of Pakistan.
