It is a birthright too
often snatched at the point of the gun from the citizens by the very men who
are to guard and defend us. This can stop to enable the people and the
country to march with confidence and courage, with pride and dignity, with
progress and prosperity into the twenty first century.
Pakistan is a great Federation. Its multilingual,
multicultural society is its strength. Its sons and daughters are its true
assets, the bright face of its future, the promise of all our tomorrows.
The Pakistan Peoples Party is the only Federal, democratic and equal
opportunity Party that can guarantee to our great people a great future. The
PPP worker is selfless and committed to the values of Faith, freedom,
fundamental human rights, family values and a wholesome society based on the
rule of law and human dignity.
The founding principle of the Party Islam is our religion places a
responsibility on each PPP supporter to reach out in a spirit of
accommodation and tolerance to all faiths, to prevent the state from
interfering in the religious rights of the citizens (which breeds
sectarianism) and to treat people of all faiths with respect enabling them
to enjoy religious freedom and equality before the law.
The second principle of the PPP ideology is that democracy is our policy.
The PPP commitment to freedom and fundamental rights, including freedom from
hunger and want, is written in the blood of its martyrs and in the red marks
of lashes on the back of its workers. It is written in the suffering and
sacrifice of its leaders the greatest of whom was Quaid e Awam. He faced the
gallows refusing to bow before tyranny defending the human rights of our
citizens to the last of his breath.
