Strengthened democracy guarantees human rights: Zardari

In his message on World Human Rights day, Zardari said that states get stronger by providing democratic and humanitarian rights to their citizens. He said that people of Jammu and Kashmir were deprived of their basic human rights by occupying Indian forces.
“Bearers of human rights should speak up for the people of Jammu and Kashmir” Zardari said in his message.
