Chairperson Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Thursday said that the Aurat March 2020 will take place on International Women’s Day on March 8 and no one can stop it from happening.
Supporting the march the PPP chairperson said those who think women will not march had an outdated mindset.
“In today’s Pakistan, women will march as well as take up professions such as doctors, lawyers, and prime minister,” said Bilawal.
PPP chairperson further said his own mother — the two-time prime minister of Pakistan, late Benazir Bhutto — was the brave lady who fought against terrorist acts such as bomb blasts. The people of Pakistan had elected Benazir into power for two terms, despite fatwas (religious edicts) declared against her.
Bilawal said PPP is the only party that launched the revolutionary Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP), which benefited some 1.5 million women in Sindh.
