Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Friday said that being a victim of terrorism himself, he realised the pain of other victims especially the Hazara community in Balochistan.

Addressing a public gathering at Quetta's Hockey Ground, Bilawal stood where his mother Benazir Bhutto had stood 11 years ago in 2007.

"I am from an oppressed family and I know the pain of those who have lost their loved ones," Bilawal told a crowd of flag-waving supporters.

"How can we forget the children of APS, the lawyers of Quetta and the carnage of Hazara Town," Bilawal said during his address.

The PPP chairman said that even today mutilated dead bodies are being recovered in Mastung and Khuzdar, "and yet, Imran Khan's only problem seems to be Nawaz Sharif and Nawaz Sharif's only problem is Imran Khan.

He added: "They only worry about coming into power and nothing else."

He reiterated that the issues of Balochistan can only be resolved through political means.

Earlier, the PPP chairman offered fateha as he visited the residence of members of the Hazara community who had been killed in recent targeted attacks.
