ISLAMABAD: People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Wednesday apparently denounced his party’s political rivals by sharing phrases from renowned Urdu poet Habib Jalib’s Dastoor.
Bilawal rebutted the accusations against him and his father Asif Ali Zardari in the fake bank accounts case on Twitter.
He said, “Main bhee kha’if naheen takhta e daar say, Main bhee Mansoor hoon, keh do aghyaar say, Kyun daraatay ho zindaan ki divar say, zulm ki baat ko, jehel ki raat ko, main naheen maanta, main naheen jaanta (Like audacious Mansoor I declare, I have no dread of the hangman’s plank, why do you fear the prison walls? These acts of cruelty, these nights in jail, I will not accept, I will not condone).”
میں بھی خائف نہیں تختہِ دار سے
میں بھی منصور ہوں کہ دو اغیار سے
کیوں ڈراتے ہو زنداں کی دیوار سے
ظلم کی بات کو جہل کی رات کو
میں نہیں مانتا میں نہیں جانتا

Both Zardari and Bilawal were summoned by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for interrogation into the matter. A large number of party workers moved to the federal capital on the party’s instructions to express solidarity with them.
