Intolerance, extremism destroying Pakistan: Bilawal

Islamabad, Nov 17 (IANS) Pakistan Peoples' Party (PPP) chief Bilawal Bhutto on Sunday said that the country was facing worst kind of intolerance in modern times.

In a statement issued on the the International Day for Tolerance observed by the UN, Bhutto said intolerance is rising in Pakistan and extremism has been injected into the country's politics, Dawn reported.

Extremism is destroying the whole society, he added.

He emphasized that PPP leadership, which has always promoted tolerance, equality and peace, has been denied access to personal doctors in jail.

Lashing out at Imran Khan government, he alleged that the elections are being replaced with "selection" to make people irrelevant in governance.
