Islamabad, December 18, 2012 (PPI-OT): Aseefa Bhutto Zardari, Ambassador for Polio Eradication, has strongly condemned the violence against Polio workers that killed four female workers and a fourteen year old girl in Pakistan today. “All involved in the polio campaign are selfless volunteers, they do this to save lives, they do this to save Pakistan, says a press release received from London here today.
“We must not be deterred, better security precautions will be taken. Inshah Allah through our passion and dedication we shall eradicate this crippling disease from our homeland, we shall continue to fight in the names of those who have lost their lives for the cause. We shall continue to fight for young girls like Farzana.
Terrorists do this to scare us, they do this to try and stop us, we shall not be silenced and we will not back down, come what may,” she said.
