On Saturday, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif declared that his country would continue to fight for universal justice, equality, respect, and human rights.
He stated in his message for World Human Rights Day that we must band together in order to create a society free from injustice and inequality. The prime minister declared that this year’s theme is “dignity, freedom, and justice for everyone,” and he added that we must never forget Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s goal of a free nation in which all people might live as equal citizens in one state.
Shehbaz continued by saying that by enshrining these ideals as universally applicable fundamental rights, the Pakistani Constitution really makes this vision a reality. The premier added that we must keep up our joint efforts to ensure that residents of Indian unlawfully occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) have access to the same freedoms and privileges as those enjoyed by residents of free states.
PM Shehbaz encouraged the international community to “renew its political will” for the defence of human rights in a tweet on Saturday.
According to him, the denial of fundamental rights to oppressed groups like Palestinians and Kashmiris under IIOJK is what has caused the current “global turbulence.”
According to the prime minister, “societies that are established on human rights flourish faster than others.”
