ISLAMABAD: Senator Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Rehman Malik has said that PPP has been unprecedentedly victimized in the national history and only one political party is responsible for this act.

On Thursday, while talking to media outside the Accountability court he said, “Former president Asif Ali Zardari by appearing in court has proved that he respects the courts.”

Senator stated that one particular political party has always dragged leadership of PPP in such corruption cases but PPP has always acquitted successfully from courts. “Victory will again come to former president Asif Ali Zardari in this reference case,” he added.

Rehman Malik said that PPP has always respected the courts, while Asif Ali Zardari appeared in court despite of security threats and court also listened his argument.

Former interior minister said, “Asif Zardari has been only accused in reference not found guilty, while all other accused of NAB references excluding former president have been acquitted.”

Replying to query regarding Pervez Musharraf, Rehman Malik stated that Asif Zardari cannot be compared with Dictator Pervez Musharraf because he is a brave politician who came in power with the votes of people.

PPP senator said, “We are in the state of war with anti Islam powers and terrorists and will continue the fight because terrorism is the threat for the entire world.”

Rehman Malik said, after the withdrawal of American forces from Afghanistan in 2014 difficulties for Pakistan will increase. The world will come to know that terrorists hold no religion, he concluded.
